We treat the customer like an individual, not a transaction. When customers come to our locations, they know our names, our faces, and the fact that we will provide them top of the line automotive repair services. They come back and share their experience with others because we help them achieve their long term vehicle use goals.

The magic of our business had a lot to do with helping our franchisees grow and develop. When we do our best for our franchisees, they do their best for our customers. With proven operating systems, marketing, training and field support franchising, we look to provide the best opportunities and support towards our franchisees' success.

In the end, Merlin’s business is in people, not just the vehicles they own.
