After hours mechanics? Maybe franchising?


Eddie Starr Spokane, WA

We are in a 24/7 society. People work swing and grave shifts. Sometimes people have issues with their cars in the evening, night, or early morning. However, I haven't come across any mechanics that work "off hours," in all my years, going cross country.

I did come across, online, one place, and they are currently in just the one major city, "with more locations to come."

This would be a great idea, possibly to franchise. I have a few ideas, such as using services like TowBook to bring in clients, as well as possibly a PEO, to offer group insurance rates, but need some help to prepare this, to pitch the idea (initially) to them, and see about spreading the idea out to others.

One of the first places you should check out is the Chamber of Commerce. Spokane is big enough they might have an advisory group that helps people write up business plans. I know most of the big trucking companies run just about 24/7, i.e. Ryder etc. From discussions with my auto dealer, they have problems finding people. Two big issues, show up and show up consistently and pass a drug test. Thanks for your service and good luck.
