Our Story

A Legacy of Innovation


After opening his first AAMCO Auto and Truck Repair, Martino swiftly established himself as the go-to transmission repair mechanic, leading to an overwhelming influx of work.


Inspired by the franchising success of brands like McDonald’s, Martino partnered with Robert Morgan to officially franchise his specialized transmission repair concept.


Martino and Morgan signed their first agreement to open a transmission franchise location in Hackensack, New Jersey, marking the beginning of AAMCO’s nationwide expansion.


AAMCO’s fame skyrocketed with our award-winning ads featuring movie star Zsa Zsa Gabor, solidifying “Double-A-BEEP-BEEP-M-C-O” as one of the most memorable slogans in advertising history.
