Member Benefits

Work with non-competing, successful shop owners to make your shop more streamlined, more efficient, and more profitable through auto shop mentoring by your peers.  If you want to be successful and run your shop instead of the shop running you, we can help.  We go beyond the numbers, and beyond consultants, we are a peer group run by auto repair shop owners interested in auto shop consulting and auto shop mentoring.

Learn the way to grow your business and profitability by working “on” your business rather than working “in” your business.  It is our methodology, ran completely by successful shop owners with valuable information to share.

Precisely evaluate your financial performance against a group of similar service operations on a monthly and annual basis with a well-developed financial model that evaluates your shop’s performance against that of your peers.

Learn the “Best Practices” for every possible business management problem from a team of professional shop owners.  Our Group is all about sharing positive tips for success.

Share the best solutions for tools and technology issues in your shops with a group of leaders.

In the industry, if you want to build your shop into a successful business, and are willing to change, we can help you to improve your business and your life.

At our group meetings it isn’t all work and no play, like most other consulting groups. Be part of this group that meets in great locations that you and your family can enjoy together.   Bring your wife and children, and enjoy your time becoming more profitable!

In 2015 Atomic Auto sold our building and downsized. In the midst of this transition, I decided I needed some outside guidance and input in the restructuring. Based on the advice of a friend I found the Service Center Scholars 20 group. Using the input and tools shown to me by the members of the group, we have completely transformed our business. We now are in control of the financials and have the instruments available for monitoring the pulse and making changes as needed. Being a member of Service Center Scholars has been a truly transformative experience for my shop!

A little history...

In October of 1993, Service Center Scholars was formed to improve performance and profitability for its working group of independent automotive shop owners. Over the years, through our 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.
