Jan. 11, 2013—Fix Auto USA recently announced the addition of two locations in Washington to its growing network of collision repair centers.
The new locations—Fix Auto Gig Harbor, previously Denny’s Harbor Auto Body, and Fix Auto Puyallup, previously Denny’s Valley Auto Body—bring Fix Auto’s presence in Washington to eight locations. Fix Auto now has 14 total shops in the Pacific Northwest.
“We’ve watched Fix Auto signs pop up all over Seattle in the last year,” said Patty Denny, owner of the two new locations. “Marketing and community involvement has always been important to us. By becoming a Fix Auto franchisee, we like that we immediately benefit from the group’s previous marketing efforts, while continuing to improve our own through pooled resources and a larger scale marketing strategy. It gives us a significant advantage over independent shops in our area.”
Co-owner Mark Denny added, “Most independent repairers have felt the impact of consolidation in some form or another. Our hard work will now be backed by a corporate infrastructure, national insurance representation and the advantage of working together with other top performing shops.”
“Fix Auto Gig Harbor and Fix Auto Puyallup are great additions for Fix Auto USA,” commented Fix Auto President and COO, Paul Gange. “Having them on board continues the strategic expansion of our footprint in the Pacific Northwest with best-in-class operators committed to delivering a high-quality collision repair experience for our carrier and vehicle owner customers.”
