Founded in 1989, Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers began as a single store auto repair facility located in Sturgis, MI. The company quickly grew to five independent facilities focusing on tune-up and diagnostic services. Due to the success and growth of these sites, the company made the strategic decision to begin offering franchise opportunities in 1992. Since then, the Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers franchise system has grown to locations throughout Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Florida.
Today, Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers has been an integral part of local communities for over 27 years, and continues to provide our franchisees with a business model that contributes to positive community outreach. The company holds an A+ BBB rating, and stresses the importance of exceeding customer satisfaction in every location.
