AAMCO Transmissions Franchise

Transmission service center

AAMCO has spent the past half century as the worldwide leader in transmission repairs. Since Anthony A. Martino opened the first AAMCO in Philadelphia in 1957, we have serviced more than 45 million vehicles, and we have more than 700 franchised locations in North America starting in 1962 with Newark, New Jersey. Our legacy brand continues to thrive. Entrepreneur magazine has consistently ranked us as a top choice in its annual Franchise 500 rankings of franchise opportunities. We are also an iconic brand that customers know. We recently hired a marketing firm to measure how well the public knows our brand, and 92% of people surveyed recognized us as the leading brand for transmission repair. This is no accident: we've spent five decades building customer trust through our "Double-A-BEEP-BEEP-M-C-O" marketing campaigns.
