Barbara Moran Talks Auto Repair and Franchising
Barbara Moran-Goodrich, CEO & Co-founder of Moran Family of Brands Moran Family of Brands, was recently featured in an article on the Success Magazine website discussing successful career opportunities in blue-collar industries.
In the article entitled “It’s a Dirty Job (And These Entrepreneurs are Doing It)”, Moran spoke about the changes to the auto repair industry and getting her start in the family business. Moran Family of Brands is one of the nation’s leading franchises of general automotive repair, transmission repair, window tinting and driver safety products.
In the article, Moran noted some of the changes she has seen in the industry, such as car engines being more computerized and complex than in the past. This change has helped drive Moran’s success since car owners are even less equipped to perform vehicle maintenance. She also acknowledged that it is harder to find skilled millennials to hire. “Fewer people are going into the trades,” she said.
Although auto repair was one of five industries mentioned in the article to be a “dirty job”, it has led to more than 120 successful franchise owners throughout the Moran system.
