Capitalize on a Winning Opportunity with a Speedy Franchise for Sale
A 2012 outlook study indicates that the automotive repair sector is a superior business opportunity.
The vehicle aftermarket is now estimated to be worth $19.4 billion and employs 420,000 Canadians. These jobs represent 50% of all employment in the automotive industry.
In the years to come, the automotive repair sector in Canada is expected to grow rapidly. And, with this growing demand, comes more opportunities to purchase one of Speedy Auto Service’s franchises for sale!

With the current economic climate, people are holding onto their vehicles longer. 54% of all vehicles registered in Canada are now over eight years in age, with the average age standing at 8.54 years in age. Not only are people holding on to their vehicles longer, they are also purchasing more used vehicles. Used vehicle sales represented 65.6% of all vehicles sold in Canada in 2011.
People have also been driving their vehicles more. In 2011, there were 22.2 million vehicles registered in Canada with a total of 469.8 billion kilometers driven that year - an average of 21,995 kilometers per vehicle. Not only is the average mileage recorded per vehicle for the year higher than in the past, drivers are also keeping their vehicles on the road longer, with the average retired vehicle acquiring an estimated 320,000 kilometers in its lifetime.
Knowing that people are driving their cars more and knowing that used vehicles require more service and repair, now is a great time to join the Speedy Auto family by purchasing one of our franchises for sale!

Speedy has franchises for sale in territories across Canada. We are open to proposals for new locations in every province and territory in the country.
The initial investment to own a franchise depends on a number of factors. The size of the shop and its geographic location play an important part in determining this cost. Whether you are looking to convert an existing automotive repair shop to the Speedy banner, buy an existing franchise that’s for sale, or build a brand new “greenfield” location will also have a significant impact on the start-up costs.
Whatever franchise opportunity you’re looking for, Speedy will work closely with you to assess your specific needs and requirements and provide, in advance, an estimated amount for the initial investment.
The franchise fee to own a Speedy Auto Service shop is $35,000. This fee covers services Speedy provides the franchisee, including training, use of Speedy trademarks, Speedy legal, and transaction costs, to name a few.
In order to be eligible to purchase a franchise, the investor must have $75,000 - $100,000 in cash and a minimum net worth of $250,000. We want to ensure that anyone purchasing a franchise for sale by Speedy has the capacity to get the business off the ground and to build it up for long-term success.
The above costs will finance your establishment of a service centre. Once your shop is up and running, Speedy will require two percentage fees
A royalty fee of 5% of retail sales to cover ongoing services, including: Business management assistance and advice, supplier negotiations, advertising initiatives, and field support.
