AAMCO Transmissions Inc., franchisor of one of the world’s largest branded chains of transmission specialists and a leading provider of total car care services, announced it has been ranked on Franchise Direct’s 2017 Top 100 Global Franchises Rankings.
“It is an honor for AAMCO to be on this list and for our proven business model to get the recognition it has earned,” said Brett Ponton, CEO and president of American Driveline and AAMCO Transmission Inc. “Our success in franchising is a testament to the hard-working business owners in our franchise network and the tireless teams in our home office and in the field that provide the ongoing training and support to make it all possible. Together, we have built an award-winning total car care brand.”
According to Franchise Direct, the franchises that comprise the Top 100 Global Franchises stand out from thousands of companies that have invested in international expansion strategies. This list is the premier, research-only based ranking of the world’s top 100 franchises and uses a methodology that goes beyond system size and financial performance. The rankings are based on objective and measurable criteria, which includes system size and revenue, stability and growth, number of years in operation and market expansion. Rankings also are based on franchisee support and training best practices, environmental policy and social responsibility. Each criterion is given a weighted value, and the data for each franchise is plugged into a proprietary computer formula, making the outcome as objective as possible.
AAMCO was named to Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 ranking top of its category for the third consecutive year. Based on network size, growth rate and financial strength, last year, the brand also earned a spot on Entrepreneur’s “Best of the Best” list. In addition, AAMCO has been consecutively ranked on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ for the past two years.
