ABRA Opens Fourth Repair Center in South Dakota

Minneapolis-based ABRA Auto Body & Glass announced the opening of its newest franchise in Watertown, South Dakota. This repair center, formerly known as Sharp Collision Center, is the 23rd franchise operating under the ABRA brand.

Doug Sharp, owner of Sharp Automotive, will continue as the owner/operator of ABRA-Watertown.

“We have had a great team in place for quite some time, but we were lacking in some important areas,” Sharp said. “Among many other things, ABRA brings us a sophisticated management system and ongoing training for our team.”
ABRA-Watertown employs 10 production and office staff members.

Sharp Automotive is a Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac and Toyota dealer. Founded over 40 years ago, it’s one of the largest dealerships in Northeast South Dakota. Sharp Collision Center was recognized by Toyota as having the best customer service satisfaction of any Toyota Certified repair center in the nation.

ABRA has 95 facilities in 11 states. For more information, visit www.abraauto.com.
