Feb. 21, 2012

Feb. 21, 2012—Fix Auto USA on Monday announced the addition of two franchise collision repair locations in Northern California.

The new Fix Auto locations include Fix Auto Gilroy and Fix Auto San Jose, which were formerly known as Springer Collision Centers.

“Springer Collision Centers is celebrating its 20th year in business,” said Steve Springer, owner of Fix Auto Gilroy and Fix Auto San Jose. “We are excited to take the next step while committing our company to a market leader dedicated to improving the collision repair industry. We’ve been using Fix tools for 10 years—franchising is the next practical move to position ourselves for another successful 20 years.”

Fix Auto first introduced its franchise model in January 2011. The company now operates 29 franchise locations in California, and 47 franchise locations overall.

“The recent expansion in Seattle and now in Northern California is a clear indicator that a model like ours—which offers independent owners the infrastructure and support to be meaningful in today’s marketplace—is gaining momentum,” said Paul Gange, president and chief operating officer of Fix Auto. “We are excited to launch the Northern California franchise market with Steve and his shops and to further expand our footprint in 2012.”
