The first Minute Muffler shop opened on the corner of 5th Street and 6th Avenue South, in Lethbridge, Alberta in 1969.
At that time, Minute Muffler was the only shop in Lethbridge specializing solely in mufflers and exhaust systems. News quickly spread and Minute Muffler became an instant hit and the talk of the town.
Minute Muffler was so successful that in 1971 a second shop was opened in Medicine Hat, Alberta quickly followed by two more shops in British Columbia. Following this success Minute Muffler became a franchise business. Today there are over 90 Minute Muffler & Brake franchises across Canada.
Although muffler and performance exhaust systems remain our primary service we also specialize in brake repair, shock absorbers, struts and at a growing number of locations we offer oil, lube and car care check-up and other services.
The guiding principle remains the same as the first Minute Muffler shop opened back in 1969. Simply put…
“Where doing things right the first time is a way of life and where you know, you’re valued the minute you walk through the door”.
Now part of Fix Network World, the Minute Muffler network of stores continue to pride in being able to help keep Canadians safely on the road.
