Your new venture leverages off our proven success and well known brand.

A Rapide franchise offers the best of both worlds: a business of your own in a fast-growing market backed by an organization dedicated to enabling your success.

Team with the #1 Auto Repair Franchise

We are proud to be rated #1 in the country, with the best brand that represents expertise, convenience, value, and trust.

Auto repair: an industry poised for growth

We are proud to be the market leader in third party quick auto repair service chain stores. Our service menu includes best selling services such as air conditioning, maintenance, brakes, suspension, and tires. We also make it our business to spot trends that mean opportunity for our franchisees, such as:

  • More vehicles on the road each year.
  • Increasingly complex automotive technology making do-it-yourself repairs more difficult.
  • Drivers keeping their cars longer, and increasing the market for ongoing relationships with trusted service providers.
  • Fewer car care options for drivers, resulting in new opportunities for Rapide.

We’re building a loyal customer base for today and tomorrow

In order to capitalize on these market trends, we are more than a repair business but a one-stop shop for total car care, including tires. We’re building long-term relationships with customers who think of us first for all their car care needs. We’re also creating a strong fleet customer base, promoting Fleet Maintenance Services.
