NORCROSS, Ga. — The Mighty Auto Parts franchise network generated record annual sales last year, for the seventh consecutive year, according to franchisor Mighty Distributing System of America.
Founded in 1963, Mighty Distributing System is the franchisor of the Mighty Auto Parts distribution business, which has grown to 100 franchised distributors in 44 U.S. states and five international markets.
Norcross-based Mighty — which is marking its 50th year in business in 2020 — did not disclose the network's sales revenue but said it was up 6.8% over 2018.
Mike Hudgins, vice president of sales, said one of the keys to Mighty's success is its combination of business insight, customized training, inventory management and exceptional personal service,
"It's not enough for a supplier to simply care about your business," he said. "The added value of a true partnership is for people to be there when you need them, with meaningful solutions to the real problems that come up every day."
In the past year Mighty has added seven franchises to the network, including its first in Central America, in Guatamela. Others established in 2019 include in Alabama, Califonia, Indiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Utah.
