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 the 20 group methodology, but run 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.  A 20 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 the 20-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!

I initially joined the group for a year as a condition of the purchase of my shop. I planned to leave after that year was up. I thought I already knew it all anyway. But Dan, the previous owner, was a member of the group for quite a while. He was one smart fellow. He knew I really needed what this group had to offer for me to be successful running a shop in the long term. His placement of me in this group was the best thing he could have done for me. That all was ten successful years ago!

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.
