The ABRA network recognized its franchise family at its annual summit, commemorating all that they have achieved through the past two years.

After a record year of operational performance in 2021, the ABRA network recognized its franchise family, commemorating all that they have achieved through the past two years, including closing out 2021 with length of rental, net promoter score and return to shop metrics better than industry average.

“Our unified American network has become a powerful force in delivering the industry’s highest quality collision repairs, excellent customer service and the consistent performance that will drive our growth for the future,” said Sabrina Thring, U.S. chief operating officer, Driven Brands Collision. “By streamlining our operations, adopting industry best practices and fully leveraging the scale of Driven Brands, we have provided our ABRA franchise family enhanced resources to better support them through this ever-changing industry.”

“We learned a great deal from one another, enjoyed the beautiful weather on the golf course and raised over $5,000 for an important cause,” said Thring. “It meant the world to us to have this time with our ABRA franchise family in Phoenix. We have an immense amount of opportunity ahead and are well-positioned to surpass our 2022 goals.”
