4. EXISTING WORKSHOP?
Converting to an AA Auto Centre can drive additional business and increase margins. Some business turnover can be excluded from franchise levies, and all outwork is excluded.
As an example, franchise owner Dave Anderson converted his workshop in Hornby, Christchurch to an AA Auto Centre in November 2013. He went on to purchase an existing franchise in Papanui, started a new AA Auto Centre in Timaru and converted another workshop he owned in Shirley.
"All four of my franchises are doing very well. My first AA Auto Centre in Hornby is trading an extra $500,000 per annum with a 60% higher turnover than when it was with another franchise brand - and it's still growing year on year!"
