Milex and Mr. Transmission franchisee builds on a strong customer service foundation

Jason Kuriger puts the customer on a pedestal at his co-branded franchises Milex®, which does general automotive repairs and maintenance, and Mr. Transmission®. He says that operating both out of the same building in Crest Hill, Illinois, has been a win-win, although finding and keeping good staff can be a challenge. “I want to get the right people who are motivated for the right reasons and on the same track.” When interviewed for this article, he was losing two valued technicians because of moves. But after seven years in the automotive services industry (he owned Milex first and added Mr. Transmission in 2015), Kuriger is confident in his ability to find staffers who will put the customer first, just as he does. Both franchises offer complete independence in handling customer service. “When you have a good, loyal customer base, you can support that customer. Money is th ... read more

Mr. Transmission ‘zee aims to change Africa’s auto aftermarket

“This is going to sound corny,” warns Temi Adelu-Davis as she explains the impetus behind searching for an auto-related franchise to bring to Nigeria, “but what really tipped it over is love.” What started with a marriage proposal from then-boyfriend Glen Davis before Adelu-Davis moved home to her native Nigeria began a nearly five-year saga filled with delays, logistics challenges, bribery—or rather lack thereof—and ultimately perseverance to open a Mr. Transmission/Milex co-branded location in Africa’s most populous country. “When I was going to say good-bye he said he was coming along and he proposed,” remembers Adelu-Davis of relocating from Houston, Texas, to Lagos, the largest city in Nigeria. “But what was he going to do in Nigeria?” Temi Adelu-Davis, along with husban ... read more

Albert Daniel’s childhood did not put him on track to become an award-winning business owner with two successful automotive repair franchises.
