Store Ownership: Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Are you interested in owning a NAPA Auto Parts store, but have questions you need answered? Email detailed inquires to [email protected].

What does it cost for an independent owner to open a NAPA Auto Parts store?

When you own a NAPA store, you will not pay any franchise fees or royalties. A minimum liquid capital commitment of $75,000–$150,000 is required for consideration. It is your equity investment in the business.

How many stores can I own?

That’s up to you. NAPA would love for you to own multiple stores!

Do I have to be an automotive parts expert to be successful?

No. Our owners have varied backgrounds. While many of our current owners came to NAPA with automotive aftermarket, agricultural, industrial or heavy equipment experience, many did not.

What training and support will I receive as a NAPA store owner?

The NAPA Network offers a wide variety of ongoing training programs to help you stay competitive. You’ll have the whole NAPA team behind you to help with store setup and ongoing business management support, including wholesale managers focused on commercial customers and product selling experts nationwide.

NAPA’s Marketplace Inventory Classification system helps you analyze your store's inventory, compare your inventory with current vehicle registration and sales trends and return obsolete, slow-moving or overstocked parts.

I currently own property that I would like to offer for development of a NAPA Auto Parts store. What criteria are NAPA Business Development Managers seeking?

NAPA continues to add new stores and relocate older stores to improved, updated facilities in all fifty states. We look for freestanding buildings or strip center developments that are located near repair facilities on major thoroughfares.
