My $100M Sales Plan
via scaling boring franchising
In 2027 we’ll do over $100M in sales.
2.5X from $40M today.
I'm not going to raise any capital. I'm not going to invent anything. I'm not going to use AI, Web3, or develop any fancy software. I'm not going to create a brand or even a website.
All I'm going to do is execute a proven playbook by scaling boring franchises.
Here's my plan (feel free to copy)
Uninterrupted compounding is one of the most powerful forces in the world. I highly recommend reading Morgan Housel's Psychology of Money. It forever changed my perspective on investing.
The key to compound growth is consistency and discipline over a long period of time. Good things come to those who wait.
There is no better investment than your own business. In 2016 my brother and I started compounding our franchise business. We didn’t spend money on dumb stuff. We bought more franchises, expanded into markets, hired better people, and upgraded equipment.
Since 2016 our sales have compounded 27% per year, from $7.4M to $40M
Today we operate 33 auto repair franchises doing $40M+ per year. We need to continue 25% growth per year to hit $100M in 4 years.
Our plan has 3 components: grow, open, & acquire
We will continue to grow same-store sales. Our target is 12% growth per year, accounting for half of the 25% annual target.
We grow sales by:
Hiring better people + training
Increasing customer count
Improving close rate
We have SOPs in place for every one of those items. It’s on us to execute.
We will open new franchises from scratch.
In the auto repair business, we look for independent shops to purchase and convert to Midas. Unfortunately, finding retail automotive real estate in the Northeast is not easy.
We will also expand into new franchise industries. I like the home services because:
Low cost to enter
We will leverage our existing back-office & technology infrastructure. We will follow our playbook of investing nearly 100% of the cash flow back into growing the business. We will hire a rock-star operator from Day 1.
We will continue to acquire existing franchise locations. Franchisees want to sell to other franchisees. They don't want to sell to outsiders
There are only a few Midas shops that remain in our current footprint that we have a chance to buy. We're exploring new markets in the Northeast.
There will also be opportunities to acquire existing units of the new brand over the next few years.
Keep It Simple To Scale
A word of advice as you plan to grow your business.
Keep it simple.
It's much easier to do fewer things but do them very well. This is the beauty of franchising. It's boring but can make you a lot of money.
If I can do it, you can do it
