Mighty Auto Parts, originally founded in 1963 as M-T-Y (Manufacturer-To-You),
started out as a network of local and regional suppliers to the automotive
service industry. From the beginning, Mighty has offered the industry
a direct sourcing model for preventive maintenance, common use auto parts,
shop supplies, oil, chemicals, and lubricants for vehicles. In 1970, Mighty
employed the franchising model, recruiting independent owners for growth
and expansion. In 1993, automotive-related service companies began adding
Mighty franchises to not only service the professional installer, but
to complement their existing operations with the expertise and efficiency
of the Mighty business model. In 2009, Mighty began to expand internationally.
Over the years, Mighty has been recognized as a top franchise by
The Wall Street Journal,
Entrepreneur Magazine, and
The Atlanta Business Chronicle to name a few.
In addition, Mighty is consistently recognized by
National Oil & Lube News magazine as one of the top brands in the industry.
Today, Mighty supports a nationwide network of franchises and company operations
located in 44 states serving more than 25,000 automotive service facilities.
Headquartered just outside of Atlanta in Norcross, Georgia, Mighty also
supports operations in Canada, Saudi Arabia, and Puerto Rico. Our franchises,
consisting of individual business owners, tire dealers, quick service
specialists, oil distributors, car dealerships, and automotive-related
distributors, operate specialty wholesale distribution warehouses in exclusive,
By introducing a wholesale-only approach to fill the needs of professional
automotive service providers, Mighty created a unique niche in the marketplace.
At Mighty, we are:
- Wholesale vs. Retail
- Maintenance vs. Repair
- Inventory Stocking vs. Quick Delivery/”Hot Shot”
- Anticipating Customers’ Needs vs. Responding to them
When most people think of buying automotive products, they imagine a retail
store front that also delivers parts to service shops on demand. Mighty
is different. We are 100% wholesale and specialize in anticipating the
need rather than responding to it. We are inventory management experts
in the preventive maintenance space. In other words, we help our customers
stock the correct level of inventory for anticipated demand so that they
can turn vehicles faster and make more money. And when our customers make
more money, our franchise partners make more money.
For you, that would typically mean wholesale hours Monday – Friday,
weekly or bi-weekly deliveries to customers, lower facilities costs, lower
inventory investment with higher turns, and fewer employees to manage.
We create and continuously improve our product programs, distribution
systems, and selling tools to promote our business model.
If you compare Mighty to other automotive options, we are confident you
will find that our ownership opportunity exceeds expectations.
