Anyone remember or know of Mighty Auto parts? It was a jw owned franchisor based in Atlanta Georgia.They were going broke around 1990 and were bought out by a venture capitol group.
They had almost no one working for them that was not a jw. I bought a franchise and learned that they had no business experience and knew nothing about running a business, inventory control and so on.
I kept the franchise and made good money for 9 yrs. and then the market place started to change and the automobiles changed enough so that a change from wagon jobber to a store front parts store became obvious for survival.
