Peter Hong, owner/operator of Fix Auto Downtown El Monte, said he aligned with Fix Auto USA “because it allowed me to grow my business with a recognized brand all while maintaining complete ownership of my shop.”

“The number of high-performing independent operators that have come on board in the past few months illustrates our approach of significant, purposeful growth,” said Fix USA President and CEO Paul Gange. “It’s a group that will certainly contribute to our continued goal of creating positive associations between our network of market leading Franchise Partners and vehicle owners and insurers looking for the best available collision repair solution. We extend a warm welcome to our newest locations.”
