A Long Term Player

Originally founded as Manufacturer-To-You (M-T-Y) in 1963, Mighty Auto Parts is a prominent supplier to the automotive service professional.  From the beginning, Mighty has offered the industry a direct sourcing model for preventative maintenance, common use items for vehicles.  

Over the years, Mighty has been recognized as a top franchise by The Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur Magazine, and The Atlanta Business Chronicle to name a few.  In addition, Mighty was recently recognized as #1 for Oil & Air Filters by National Oil & Lube News.

Today, Mighty supports a nationwide network of franchises and company operations located in 44 states serving more than 25,000 automotive service facilities. Headquartered just outside of Atlanta in Norcross, Georgia, we also support operations in Canada, Saudi Arabia, and Puerto Rico.

The Business Model 

When most people think of automotive parts sales, they imagine a retail store front that also delivers parts to service shops on demand.  Mighty is different.  We are 100% wholesale and provide inventory stocking and management services that are unique in the industry.  We anticipate the need rather than respond to it. 

For Mighty franchises, that typically means wholesale hours Monday through Friday, weekly or bi-weekly deliveries to customers, lower facilities costs, lower inventory investment, and fewer employees to manage.  Compared to other automotive opportunities, you’ll likely find that Mighty’s business model exceeds expectations.

Franchises operate specialty wholesale distribution warehouses in exclusive, protected territories.  We supply preventive maintenance products such as filters, brake friction, belts, batteries, and more to automotive service providers such as tire retailers, quick lubes, car dealerships, national and regional repair chains, and local general service and repair shops.  Our combination of quality products, inventory management expertise, superior personal service, and competitive pricing gives us a unique advantage in the marketplace.
