Well-maintained 5,000 SF, 6-bay shop with a bold and bright presence between two major intersections. Over 11,300 vehicles pass by on any given workday. The facility also includes multiple offices, reception area, and break room. Set on over three-quarters of an acre with ample secure parking.
This strong and stable business represents a strong opportunity for a mechanic or service writer to step up to owning their own business and making the income that they never could working for someone else. If someone hires a General Manager with an automotive repair background, this could be a mostly absentee-owner opportunity.
This is a well-known and reputable local brand. Reputation, the ability to work on all makes and models, and a loyal customer base differentiate it from other shops in the area. A good portion of customers drive from Belen and Santa Fe because they don’t trust their vehicles to any other mechanic.
Despite 2020’s stay-at-home orders, travel limitations, increased unemployment, and barely any advertising, the business grew its gross revenue by 14% and Cash Flow by 10%. This is a business with very consistent gross revenue and cash flow. Additional ways to grow the business can be discussed upon receipt of an NDA.
SBA Pre-Approved. Possibility of 0% down financing available for a business owner in an auto-related business who is looking to expand.
