Fix Auto USA announced its 100th location, marking a milestone in the growth of the independent, owner-operated collision repair brand.
Fix Auto launched its franchise model in 2011 in response to a collision repair landscape increasingly dominated by regional and national consolidators, and insurance carriers looking for a turnkey vehicle claims processing solution. Fix Auto says its franchise concept answered the challenge, allowing its locations to compete and thrive in the MSO market segment. Just as importantly, Fix Auto states, this achievement has been attained without forfeiting the facility’s established ownership and identity and connection to local markets.
“Reaching this moment in our brand’s history in a wildly competitive market is cause for celebration,” said Fix Auto President and COO Paul Gange. “The entire Fix Auto Family played a role in this accomplishment and should be acknowledged for delivering the unmatched value proposition our insurance partners and vehicle owner customers see and appreciate every day – industry-leading performance, concierge-level service, productive industry and community relationships – to name just a few.”
Added Fix Auto Vice President of Network Development and Marketing Armin Price, “There’s no question that the brand continues to gain traction because we extend invitations only to operators who exhibit market-leading performance and are driven, passionate and committed to their businesses. Maintaining this philosophy as we move forward will reinforce our already strong core of independent operators and position us for success in 2016 and beyond.”
