CARSTAR Canada announced its newest location: CARSTAR Olds, located in Olds, Alberta, Canada. CARSTAR Olds is owned and operated by Rod Pedersen and managed by Randy Yantz. The store features a facility with updated equipment, offering a variety of services.
As a successful family owned business, CARSTAR Olds has been around since 1979 and boasts an impressive reputation within the community. Current owner Pedersen purchased the business from his father and has been working in the auto body repair industry his entire life. His decision to transfer his business over to a CARSTAR franchise was a relatively easy decision.
“The days of the independent body shops are a thing of the past,” said Pederson. “Now you need the brand recognition, state-of-the-art training and knowledgeable support staff that a big name provides. With CARSTAR, we are getting all of those things, plus more!”
Giving back to their community has always been a top priority for CARSTAR Olds throughout the years. They have been very active within their community, supporting various charitable initiatives and local sports teams such as the Olds Grizzlies.
