About Franchise

Merlin 200,000 Mile Shops is a premier automotive repair franchise who is based in suburban Chicago Illinois. Our franchisees are a close-knit family, dedicated to providing high quality service repairs at a fair price.

Our goal is to keep cars on the road over 200,000 miles or more thereby providing incredible value to our customers. This unique and incredible opportunity is priced well for a new start up and the company has a long book of business within our database of loyal customers. We also have a free-standing training center with over 100 training classes available to our franchisees at no cost.

WHY MERLIN

  • No Automotive Experience Required!
  • Established Brand in Business for Over 40 Years
  • Brand Recognition and Industry Leading Economics
  • DRIVE FOR 200,000 Miles Maintenance Program
  • 200,000 Mile Warranties on Tires, Brakes and Mufflers
  • State-of-the-art Offsite Training Center and In-shop eLearning Program

THE MERLIN CONCEPT AND THE 200,000 MILE PROPOSITION

The Merlin concept focuses on long term customer relationships instead of maximizing one time sales transactions. When customers are treated fairly and advised wisely, they will return again and again for service. As well, they will become a living testimonial to Merlin by telling their friends and family about the service they received.

Merlin’s warranties and programs are wrapped around the 200,000 mile concept to inform customers that Merlin Shops are ready to service their vehicle for the long haul. THE DRIVE FOR 200,000, Merlin’s proprietary maintenance program, is an easy and affordable plan that not only covers vehicles through the manufacturer’s warranty period but to 200,000 miles and beyond.

Merlin's one stop automotive service approach when combined with the 200,000 Mile Proposition affords Franchise Owners a significant edge over competing automotive service chains.
