At Mighty, we are:
- Wholesale vs. Retail
- Maintenance vs. Repair
- Inventory Stocking vs. Quick Delivery/”Hot Shot”
- Anticipating Customers’ Needs vs. Responding to them
When most people think of buying automotive products, they imagine a retail store front that also delivers parts to service shops on demand. Mighty is different. We are 100% wholesale and specialize in anticipating the need rather than responding to it. We are inventory management experts in the preventive maintenance space. In other words, we help our customers stock the correct level of inventory for anticipated demand so that they can turn vehicles faster and make more money. And when our customers make more money, our franchise partners make more money.
Our franchisees come from varying backgrounds with different skill sets. Some just love cars and being around the automotive industry. Some enjoy wholesale distribution and the freedom it provides for work, play, and lifestyle. Others love the ability to interact with their customers each week.
Many of our franchises are selfmade entrepreneurs. Their Mighty franchise is a family affair. It could be a husband and wife, a father and daughter, brothers and cousins. What’s better than making a good living, enjoying your career, and creating a business that can include all or part of your family if you so choose?
Other franchises are affiliated with existing automotive service businesses: tire centers, quick lube chains, car dealership groups and wholesale distributors. They enjoy the synergies that a Mighty division can provide to help strengthen their core business. They look to Mighty to provide revenue growth and additional profits, which inturn provides opportunities for franchise owners and employees alike.
