What is the Next Step to Grow Business for Those in Auto Repair Industry? New Trend of NARPRO Could Be the Answer

Many auto repair shop owners wonder what they can do next to grow their business. Some are fine with one or two shops, while others have been at it for a while and want to find a steady, recurring income, but stay in the industry they've known all their life. Other people who have worked in alliance with auto repair facilities, products, sales may be wondering what they could do to stay in their field, but do something "more."

Many auto repair shop owners wonder what they can do next to grow their business. Some are fine with one or two shops, while others have been at it for a while and want to find a steady, recurring income, but stay in the industry they’ve known all their life. Other people who have worked in alliance with auto repair facilities, products, sales may be wondering what they could do to stay in their field, but do something “more.”

NARPRO, The Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals, is that next phase for a mechanic, owner or salesperson involved in the auto repair industry. A fine example of this is Dan Dumbauld, A.A.M. and general manager of The Auto Shop in Phoenix, AZ. Dumbauld is a 32-year veteran of the automotive repair industry and the first franchisee owner of NARPRO. He has always had plans to “retire” in Oregon and will launch a NARPRO network there this year. Dumbauld is an example of who can be a franchise owner with NARPRO. He is an industry proponent. He believes that NARPRO will help the image of mechanics and repair shops with consumers.

Dumbauld has been a member of NARPRO in Phoenix for six years. He has been listed as an honored professional in the Nationwide Registers Whos Who in Executives and Businesses and is an appointed member of the National Car Care Center Advisory Council for Parts Plus in Memphis Tennessee representing the Southwestern region of the independent automotive repair industry. To remain an industry leader, Dumbauld and his team remain active participants with the Automotive Service Association (ASA), AMI, Parts Plus, The Better Business Bureau, The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and the Automotive Repair Partners of Arizona.

Who is the IDEAL franchisee for NARPRO?
• Has successfully run an auto repair or related industry business.
• Industry leader and industry proponent.
• Wants to be a business owner/investor.
• Has the capital to invest (Approx. $60k to start).
