Born in the Motor City...Rolling Nationwide®
How We Got Started
Founded in 1989, Auto-Lab® began as a single store auto repair facility located in Sturgis, MI. The company quickly grew to five independent facilities focusing on tune-up and diagnostic services. Due to the success and growth of these sites, the company made the strategic decision to begin offering franchise opportunities in 1992. Since then, the Auto-Lab® franchise system has grown to locations throughout Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Florida.
As the industry continued to evolve, the company changed its name from “Auto-Lab® Diagnostic and Tune-Up Centers” to “Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Centers”. The name change captures our current, razor-sharp focus on complete car repair, while still maintaining a specialty in the most technologically advanced diagnostic services.
Fast forward to today, and Auto-Lab® Complete Car Care Centers have been an integral part of local communities for 27 years, and continues to provide our franchisees with a business model that contributes to positive community outreach. The company holds an A+ BBB rating, and stresses the importance of exceeding customer satisfaction in every location.
Why Our Model Works:
- Strong Consumer Demand
- Recession Resistant
- Harness The Power of the Auto-Lab® Brand
- Minimal Competition
- No Auto Repair Experience Necessary
The Auto-Lab® Franchise Difference

Our sole focus on diagnosis and repair services makes Auto-Lab® a less expensive alternative for our retail customer than both automotive dealerships and most other independent repair shops.
