Husband and Wife Become AAMCO's Largest Franchisees
AAMCO announced Thomas and Ronda Scott have become the largest franchise owners in the system following the purchase of seven centers in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In addition to these seven units, the Scotts own two AAMCO locations in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which they purchased less than two years ago.
After years of uprooting their family for Thomas' previous jobs, the Scotts were seeking a sustainable business opportunity so they could settle down and focus on family. In November 2013, after thorough research, the entrepreneurs purchased an existing AAMCO service center in Tulsa, followed by the acquisition of a second location in the market less than six months later. The Scotts quickly transformed the two units into valued businesses and top performers in the region. Last year, they were presented with the opportunity to purchase seven additional units in Oklahoma City, which they eagerly accepted — earning them the title of largest franchisees in the system.
"The past two years have been an exciting whirlwind for Ronda and me," said Thomas Scott, AAMCO franchisee. "We're thrilled to have such an incredible platform that allows us the opportunity to impact the lives of people in the community. The ongoing support we receive from AAMCO's executive team is unparalleled, and we're constantly motivated by their passion and commitment to their franchisees. We look forward to continuing to serve new and existing customers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City for many years to come."
Prior to joining AAMCO, Thomas spent more than three decades in plastic manufacturing working in the injection-molding field, while Ronda worked for 15 years as a dental hygienist. Today, the Scotts are closely involved in the day-to-day operations of their nine units.
"Thomas and Ronda have proven to be tremendous franchise owners to AAMCO and continue to impress us with their commitment to providing superior customer service each and every day," said Brian O'Donnell, senior vice president of sales for AAMCO. "As the largest franchisees in our system, the Scotts are exemplary leaders, and we look forward to their continued success."
