The Service Center Scholars was the first and has been the only true NCM "20-Group" of independent automotive service businesses.
This group has given me the confidence, skills and moral support to move my shop operations to a different part of my state to be in a better demographic area. I’m currently in a rented facility but we are about to break ground on a state of the art facility that will allow me to take my business to the next level. Yes, you can do great things alone, but having a team of shop owner experts who “have been there, done that” helped me navigate the many, many hurtles and roadblocks as I worked on financing, designing, building and opening this beautiful new facility. Thanks, guys!
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.
