Meineke Car Care Centers, part of the Driven Brands family of automotive companies, recently announced the refranchising of 12 company-owned Meineke centers in the Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia, Washington market to long-time franchisee Randy DuBois.
“As an experienced operator with an acute business sense and a passion for the Meineke brand, Randy has been an influential franchisee within the Meineke franchise system since 2008,” said Paul Clayton, president of Meineke. “His operational know-how will play a key role in the region’s growth, and we look forward to having Randy as a brand ambassador for many years to come.”
Representing the brand’s most recent success in its refranchising strategy, the acquisition makes Randy among the largest Meineke franchise operator with 15 total locations throughout northwest Washington.
“With re-energized brand initiatives, including a new consumer-centric service model and revitalized marketing strategies, I’m excited to be part of this expanded business relationship,” DuBois said. “My continued investment in the Meineke system reflects my confidence in the brand’s ability to make owning and operating Meineke centers profitable for franchisees.”
