CAR-X FRANCHISEE BENEFITS

Car-X will help you learn everything you need to know to operate a Car-X Tire & Auto shop and provide ongoing support. 

TRAINING

New franchise orientation includes 4-week formal training program in administration, operations and technical, with additional on-the-job training.

Initial and ongoing training includes both classroom and actual “hands-on” instruction. Topics include: shop administration, employee recruitment, vehicle inspection and diagnosis procedures, sales techniques, inventory control, financial management, and most importantly the fine points of maintaining good customer relations.

As automotive technology advances and vehicle repairs become more complex, we assist you in staying up to date with the changes. We offer hands-on and on-line enrichment opportunities to you and your staff.
