Evaluation Criteria: Best Automotive Franchises
Growth Prospect

Automotive and car franchises offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to offer products and services related to the automotive industry for experienced car owners and new car buyers alike. During our analysis, we compare the overall prospect for a business to grow over time and expand based on their long-term historical performance and their history of opening new franchises with experienced entrepreneurs.

Marketing Support

We evaluate and rank franchises which offer entrepreneurs the ability to provide products and services related to the automotive industry. During our analysis, we compare the amount of support in marketing and advertising which the franchisor provides to their franchises in order to help influence buyer interest in their franchises based on relevant markets and audiences in and around their place of business.

Training

It is important for any franchisor to provide their franchises with the tools and resources required to properly train and educate their workforce in being able to provide the products and services being offered effectively. We investigate the training practices and resources made available to franchises and how much effort is placed into ensuring the training guidelines are being followed to ensure consistent employee performance.

Ongoing Support

We perform an extensive analysis of automotive franchises in order to better understand the amount of support they offer their franchisees over the course of business. While many franchisors offer franchises assistance in the beginning, it becomes important to offer continued support and assistance. We recommend the franchisors which take the steps necessary to continue to assist their franchised businesses.

Value

Our analysis of the value of a franchise is based on different metrics relating to the long-term growth and performance of the franchise. We want to ensure the automotive franchises which we recommend to our visitors maintain a strong financial value in addition to the overall value of their brand. It is important for the franchisor to maintain the value of their brand for the benefit of the franchised businesses.
