Fix Auto USA announced the addition of five new franchise locations, bringing Fix Auto USA’s total number of locations to 148. The additional locations expand Fix Auto USA’s geographic footprint in multiple markets including: Northern California, the greater Phoenix area and Southern California.
The locations include:
- Fix Auto Berkeley, formerly Platinum Collision Centre, operated by Eugene Young
- Fix Auto Deer Valley, (Phoenix, AZ), operated by husband-and-wife team Ron and Lynn Werner
- Fix Auto San Leandro formerly BMC of San Leandro, operated by Roque Moya
- Fix Auto Scottsdale, formerly Mark Kia Collision, operated by Marc Dubowy and Joshua Spencer
- Fix Auto Quartz Hill, formerly Westside Body and Paint, operated by brother-sister duo Mike Neis and Stephanie Hix, who also operate Fix Auto Lancaster
“I’ve been in this industry for a long time as both an insurance adjuster and a shop owner and really saw the industry landscape begin to change even ten years ago; it was eye opening then,” stated Fix Auto Deer Valley Owner-Operator Ron Werner. “Now that I’m getting back into the business as a shop owner, I can only imagine operating a shop that’s aligned with Fix Auto USA; any other way just wouldn’t make good business sense to me.”
“The world of collision repair is not what it used to be – it’s moving faster, different participants are getting involved, and the general dynamics have changed dramatically,” stated Fix Auto Scottsdale Owner-Operator Marc Dubowy. “Because we’re now part of the Fix Auto USA Family, I know there’s an entire enterprise that cares about my business just as I do, and that’s very reassuring to me.”
“It’s clear that more and more collision repair facilities are seeing the value that Fix Auto USA delivers to the independent repairer by evidence of our proven platform and continued growth and we welcome these locations to the Fix Auto USA Family,” commented Fix Auto USA President and CEO Paul Gange. “Each time an owner-operator joins our network we become that much stronger because we couple their competitive nature, engagement, drive, and passion with a strong, stable infrastructure – and that’s tough to compete with.”
