Turn your experience into $$$$.

If you are or have been a Senior Technician, Shop Foreman, Service Manager, Assistant Manager or Shop Manager within the industry, you can make that experience count. Our FASTRAK program converts your industry experience into hard dollars. If you qualify, you could receive up to $15,000 toward the purchase of your own franchise.

How soon can I be in operation once I have been accepted as a franchisee?

Location is the determining factor. On a new and "contract-controlled" location, construction normally can be completed in 120 to 150 days, subject to building permits and zoning requirements. In the case of an existing operation, this time period could be as little as 45 days.

Incentives for bilingual candidates!

With our Two Language Program (TLP), franchisee candidates who qualify will receive a $10,000 equity award toward the purchase of a new Merlin franchise. Candidates must show substantial proficiency (speaking, reading and writing) in at least one language in addition to English to qualify.
