Coming into this group, I was a small European Auto Repair Shop with 3 bays. Now I have 3 successful shops and am able to work on my business instead of in it. Service Center Scholars has helped me to be successful and still have time for my family. If you want to change your shop into a better business, we have the tools and ideas to help.

A little history...

The Service Center Scholars are administered by NCM Associates, the company that invented the "20-Group" concept in 1947, creating a methodology for new car dealers to improve the performance and profitability of their business operations. Over the years, through NCM's proven structure of regular, agenda driven meetings, shared ideas and detailed financial analysis, groups of like-minded business owners have been able to reach new levels of success that would be difficult or impossible to achieve on their own.

Today NCM administers 20-Groups for all major new car brands as well as for franchised dealers in Powersports (motorcycles, ATV's and watercraft) as well as for quick-lube franchises and independent car dealers.
