pic4A Message To Prospective Franchise Owners From The President and CEO, Robert Baskind

We appreciate your interest in owning a Tilden franchise. As automotive repair specialists, Tilden Your Total Car Care CenterTM owners nationwide are fulfilling their dream of career independence. Together they share the advantages of a recognized name, hands-on training, and a Tilden System that’s geared to business success. Benefits like these give each Tilden franchise a significant edge over independent shop owners in their market area. With a strong desire to succeed, you too can forge a Tilden success story in today’s expanding automotive aftermarket.

More Cars, More Business

A recent government study concluded that franchising has opened a remarkable door of opportunity for small business ownership. Against this backdrop, automotive repair in particular offers excellent growth potential. That’s because there are more cars and trucks on today’s roads than ever before. And, because the average American now keeps a vehicle more than eight years, the volume of repairs is mounting. Who’s doing the work? Service stations once performed the bulk of such services, but 70% of these small, neighborhood facilities have disappeared since 1980. Instead, vehicle owners now look to franchise shops like Tilden for needed repairs.

Automotive Services in Demand

This means your timing for entering the automotive aftermarket couldn’t be better. And because brake work, tune ups and oil changes are the most frequently performed repairs, Tilden’s complete menu of tune up services is also right on target. The future for Tilden services (brakes, tune ups, oil changes, exhaust, plus shocks, struts, CV-joints, front end work, and other repairs) looks equally bright, propelled by today’s smaller cars which place added demands on both brakes and shocks.

Expert Guidance and Training

The Tilden System of proven customer service, operational, and business management methods can be your key for successfully entering this growing automotive aftermarket. It is a program that works and one that has been used successfully for over 75 years.
