Our Franchisees Say It Best  

“I wanted an opportunity to control my own destiny. I have two small children who I’m quite proud of, and I’d like to see them grow up a little bit more. Meineke also represents a business that I was looking for, in that it is a recession resistant business. ”  - Luis Bonilla  

“Back in 1984, I opened up an independent shop and realized that I needed a lot more structure… I went with Meineke in 1988 because I clearly needed that structure and it’s been great for
me.” 
- Ray Howell
