FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mr. Transmission Announces Expansion Plans in Tennessee
Recent statistics show the Automotive Aftermarket Industry experiencing exponential sales
growth and economic trends are creating business opportunities.
Midlothian, IL, July 1, 2010 - Moran Industries, Inc, franchisor of Mr. Transmission and Milex
Complete Auto Care has recently announced expansion plans for up to 25 locations in the state
including the Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville areas.
“We have always considered Tennessee home. It was over 50 years ago that Mr. Transmission
opened its first location in Nashville and then in 1975 began offering franchises across the
country”, said Barb Moran, CEO/President of Moran Industries, Inc,. “Small businesses are
considered the backbone to the local economy. Our hope is to bring more locally owned small
businesses to the state and we are providing significant incentives and discounts to make the
dream of owning a business a reality,” she added. Moran industries recently announced new
incentive programs for qualified buyers such as franchise fee discounts, seller financing, multibrand discounts and no money down start-up programs.
Moran Industries has invested a great deal of resources over the past few years to ensure Mr.
Transmission remains a strong and profitable business for the future. Moran was the first in the
automotive aftermarket repair industry to offer co-branding as an option for their franchisees
with the partnering of Mr. Transmission and Milex Complete Auto Care. All Moran franchisees
can opt to provide general automotive repair services by adding the Milex Complete Auto Care
brand and business system to their existing business. “We believe that bringing these brands
together offers consumers the most complete bumper to bumper auto repair facility in the
industry” indicated Moran. “Owners can still choose to run a Mr. Transmission by itself but with
the addition of Milex Complete Auto Care, there is an opportunity for them to obtain additional
revenue and growth without the overhead of running a separate business system.”
One additional incentive Moran Industries will be offering is a Multi-Brand Discount. For a limited
time, new owners who sign an agreement and pay fees for one brand, will have the fees waived
for any additional brands they add. There are also a limited number of existing store resale
opportunities that require a minimal investment to open.
According to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association, there are over 250 million cars
on the road and a shortage of service bays nationwide. “Now is a great time to get into the
automotive aftermarket industry”, added Moran. “With vehicles lasting longer, the average
number of miles driven increasing and automotive repairs becoming more complex, the industry
is seeing exponential growth.”
