Founded in 2003 as a much-needed break from the traditional auto shop image, Honest-1 Auto Care has grown into the country's most trusted family of automotive maintenance and repair centers and the most powerful franchise in the industry.
Honest-1 Auto Care
What is Honest-1? // Auto care at its finest
Honest-1 Auto Care’s franchise operations system grants single-unit franchises for the retail sale of automotive repair. Each unit offers various automotive tune-ups, oil changes, tires, engine, and brake services to the general public. Our typical Auto Care Center is approximately 4000 square feet (usually with 6 service bays) and may be newly built, retro-fitted to an existing free-standing structure, or incorporated into the end-cap of a car-accessible shopping strip.
Honest-1 is the only national company to operate full-service, customer- centric, and ECO-friendly Auto Care® centers. Each Honest-1 Auto Care Center is designed to be family-friendly and cost-effective for consumers who are looking for an alternative to traditional dealership service. We are the Home of Honest Mechanics®, and we hold all of our associates to the highest level of integrity, craftsmanship, and customer service.
Honest-1 started doing business in 2003. We are celebrating a number of expansion projects that are in development nationwide, and we will have over 50 shops in operation by the end of 2014. The company also partners with 16 region developers who oversee the franchisees by region. Additionally, the executive team at the main office in Scottsdale has over 70 years of combined automotive and franchise experience.
