I have been a mechanic for decades now, and I got tired of working for someone else and decided that it was time that I went into business myself. One of the easiest things for a mechanic to do if they are looking to go into business for themselves is to start an oil change franchise. The fact of the matter is that changing oil is one of the simplest things to do to a car, and because it is so simple to do, there is a high profit margin for changing someone’s oil for them. What is even better is the fact that there is not a whole lot of training involved when it comes to changing oil, so rather than looking for certified mechanics, you can actually hire at entry level and train all of your staff yourself, which will end up saving you some money and help you to protect your bottom line.
Another great benefit of this sort of thing is that you can use a trusted franchise name, which means that you will not have to spend nearly as much money on advertising as someone who is not using a franchise name. Rather than trying to get your name in the heads of as many people as possible, you can rely on the fact that people already know and trust the name that you are using, and this means that they will recognize you by your sign on the side of the road right away. This drives business quite a bit, and that is why going with a franchise is much easier than starting up from scratch.
I am definitely glad that I began this business venture, and so far everything has been going quite well and the revenue has been pouring in.
