People with a Passion for Auto Parts, Service & Relationships

A Mighty History

In 1963, Dallas “Dick” Wallace started selling tire repair products from his VW Beetle to service stations in the Washington D.C. area. Originally the business was known as M-T-Y which stood for Manufacturer To You. This innovative and efficient distribution model offered the industry direct sourcing for preventive maintenance products including: commonly replaced auto parts, tire repair, wheel weights and shop supplies. During the 60’s a thriving network of local and regional distributors grew into the Mighty Distributing System.

In 1970, Mighty employed the franchising model, recruiting independent owners for growth and expansion.

In 1993, automotive-related service companies began adding Mighty franchises to their company portfolios. This complemented their existing operations with the expertise and efficiency of Mighty’s business model. In 2009, Mighty began to expand internationally.

How Far We’ve Come

Over the years, Mighty has been recognized as a top franchise by The Wall Street Journal, Franchise Business Review, and The Atlanta Business Chronicle, just to name a few. We are also consistently recognized by National Oil & Lube News magazine as one of the top brands in the industry.
