Overview / Comments


Mark's Muffler Shop is a real landmark in post Katrina history of New Orleans. Founded almost 40 years ago in 1984, this is an unparalleled opportunity to own and operate a thriving specialty exhaust and fabrication muffler shop. Experience in the auto industry is a requirement. The current owner is willing to stay on and train a new owner for an agreed upon time frame. A new owner would be stepping into a business that currently has a tremendous volume of referral and repeat business that is also growing 20% annually. This shop is currently owned and operated by one person. A younger owner could easily absorb the growth of the business immediately by hiring employees as the facilities will support it. Running this business as owner/operator or semi-absentee can both yield a strong and expedited return on your investment. This is the preferred muffler shop within a 30 mile radius with 4.8 stars on Google. A new owner should expect great success. All interested parties will need to sign the NDA.

-There are 2 racks. Could add up to 2 more
-3 employees, including owner
-Property Taxes are approx. $1900/year
-Equipment valued at $26,000 includes: 2 racks, 2 industrial grade welding machines, acetylene-oxygen industrial grade cutting and welding torches, pipe bending and fabrication machine, air compressor, snap on tool box, whole building generator, security cameras, security system (ADT)
-Inventory worth upwards of $50,000 including nuts, bolts, brackets, pipes, resonators, direct fit, universal, mufflers, catalytic converters, pipe assembly, etc.

Never been robbed once in almost 40 years. Broken into once, which was right after Katrina with no electricity and no alarm system. Other than that, the owner has always had alarms, cameras, and good neighbors. It is also on the main street with traffic always going by. This neighborhood is on an upward trend. From St. Claude to the river is the historic Holy Cross neighborhood. Renovations and new construction homes are an ongoing thing. This neighborhood has always been better than across the canal due to it being single family and double type homes and not big government project type housing.

There are unique financing options available for this area of town from the city as well as the state. This property is located in an Opportunity Zone, and it is along the area of St Claude in the 9th Ward that is part of the "Main Street" Program designed to revitalize the area. Reach out to the NOLABA and the LED for more information.
