Why is that funny, Kevin? What's the use of shooting defenseless animals? Gotta take your revenge out on them because you can't get a date?

Comment on Radiators by From The Outside

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 23:50:55 +0000

Hey guys, its now 01/04/2017 and 1-800-Radiator & A/C is still up and running. As of 2015 Driven Brands have purchased the franchise and have added it to their long list of automotive only franchises. This list includes Meineke, Maaco, Econo Lube and many many more that you may or may not of heard of. As of the last 1-800-Radiator conference in Las Vegas, the owners have declined, a lot, but 1-800 has more locations than ever. The peak of selling franchises, there were over 230 owners, and approx 250 locations. From what I understand, there are less than 190 owners, but locations are close to 300. The company in 2016 grossed approximately 300 million dollars in Radiators, A/C Parts, Fuel Parts and the big announcement in Vegas was the new pilot program of Catalytic Converters. 20 locations have already launched, but 1800 Corp tested first with two corp owned locations. All the upset, and unhappy Franchisee's are gone. It appears that almost all the single owner locations have been eaten up by the larger, more financially secure multi-store locations. Cummins Radiator has 3 or 4 locations now, The Radiator Store is now a Franchise with over 12 locations and approx 30 million in sales. Radiator Depot is part of the 1-800 network and has 5 or 6 new stores. I don't know how much a typical Franchisee makes, but they all seemed to be doing well, exchanging stories, etc. It was nice going to the conference and talking to so many people. I definitely think that a few franchisee's are struggling, and or willing to sell, but the vast majority does seem profitable and growing. A lot of the things posted on here seem to be really far off. From what I understand 1-800 was selling franchise's to pretty much any one who would buy one, and it looks like that was definitely a mistake from this forum. It seems like a lot of those mistakes are now no longer with the company. It also seems like Joe Rippey was a great owner in the fact that he grew this company so fast, but obviously made a lot of mistakes as well, but in the long run he sold the company for a lot of money and to the benefit of the Franchisee's they now have a very strong ownership and tons of Capital with Driven Brands. A lot of the guys who were at 1-800 with the Rippey's are now in charge and running the company for Driven Brands. The morale seems to be "how to continue to strive, and continue to grow when you reached the top. What new products can be brought to our current customers? What can we do better? How do we corner the ecommerce market with so many other competitors?" After reading thru some of the comments some ex owners said so much about other competitors taking you out, or Performance Radiator being so profitable, also read about SPI (spectra radiators). I think Performance is down to less than 30 warehouses. SPI sold their distributorships to Keystone/LKQ. The new competition seems to be the general parts stores. And to touch on someone else's comments on vendors not getting paid. I don't know if that holds any water, if that was ever a case, but I'll tell you, the vendor show was a 5000 sq foot ball room with more than 100 tents/displays set up begging for business from these guys.

Interesting article. This article is a great example of what people who don't understand the business model think about it.
