Our Car Service Franchise Application Process


Owning a car care franchise is no longer daunting when you have the support of Meineke Car Care Centers to help you. We have a defined process which gives you the opportunity to be as equipped as possible for opening your own car service franchise. Our application process to become a franchisee is as follows:

  • Submit the Meineke Preliminary Discover Questionnaire
  • Preliminary Approval
  • Review the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and Franchise Trademark Agreement (FTA)
  • Meineke Presentation and Discussion
  • Continue Due Diligence
  • Final Approval
  • If, within four to eight weeks, we mutually agree that owning a Meineke Car Care Center is right for both you and Meineke, sign the FTA and purchase a license.

Car Care Franchise Finance and Site Selection Support

Once the final approval is given on opening your car care franchise with us, you will be assigned an experienced Field Real Estate Representative who will evaluate your opportunities and work with you to identify approvable automotive franchise locations.

We also will assign our Financing Manager to help with funding requirements needs. BoeFly is now a financing partner for Meineke and is an approved SBA company with numerous relationships with some of the top financing institutions throughout the United States

Once a car care franchise location is identified and financing is approved, we will assist in securing location with a lease or purchase agreement. You will be assigned a project coordinator who will coordinate signage, equipment, inventory, training and most importantly – your grand opening!

Car Care Franchise Training

You will enjoy our state-of-the-art, car care franchise e-training center located in Charlotte, NC, approximately one month prior to the scheduled opening of your Meineke Car Care Center. Training, hotel accommodations and airfare for two people who originally sign the auto franchise agreement is included in the original franchise license fee.
