Fix Auto adds three Washington franchises
Sept. 14, 2011—Fix Auto USA on Wednesday announced the addition of three franchise locations in the Seattle market.
The new Fix Auto franchises include the following:
• Fix Auto Seattle Metro, formerly Havlick’s Auto Rebuild
• Fix Auto Burien, formerly Stewart’s Collision
• Fix Auto Kent, formerly Riverside Collision
Noel Pennington, owner of the three new locations, said having a solid brand played a significant role in his decision to franchise.
“I’ve been looking for a solution to commonly brand my three locations. Fix Auto provides a clean brand with a clear message and the infrastructure in place to support it,” Pennington said. “I was impressed with the quality of shops that make up the Fix Auto Northwest group and their commitment to providing outstanding customer service. I’m excited to be part of this organization.”
Fix Auto USA added a franchise model to network membership in January. The company now has 42 franchise locations operating in four states: California, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
“We are very pleased to expand into the Seattle market with Noel Pennington and his three locations. Noel and his team have a reputation for providing superior service and impeccable quality,” said Paul Gange, president and chief operating officer of Fix Auto USA. “It’s an exciting time for us as we build momentum and continue working toward our expansion goals in the northwest."
