Moran Family of Brands Adds New Locations, Markets
March 15, 2018—Moran Family of Brands, a franchisor of general automotive repair, transmission repair, window tinting and driver safety products, has experienced dramatic growth over the past few months. Moran has executed agreements with franchise owners for several new locations that are currently in various stages of development.
Moran has recently signed agreements and opened new stores in Winston-Salem and Cary, N.C. Other new locations, which are in the site selection process, are expected to open shortly in Tampa Fla., Bear DE, Dallas, and Las Vegas. The agreement with the franchise owners in Cary and Las Vegas are for multiple locations in those markets. Each of these new stores are for Milex/Mr. Transmission co-branded locations, with the exception of Tampa, which will feature all four of Moran’s branded operations: Milex, Mr. Transmission, Alta Mere and SmartView.
The Multistate Transmission store in Chicago Heights, Ill., is now under new ownership after the previous owner of 44 years retired and sold the franchise. The new franchise owner will co-brand the location with Milex Complete Auto Care in the next month while taking over the highly successful, and established business.
"We are very excited and fortunate to bring on this many quality franchisees in such a short period of time, along with entering several new markets for Moran’s franchise system,” said Pete Baldine, president of Moran Family of Brands. "We are on track to continue this pace throughout 2018 as we execute our target market strategy, and we are fortunate to have strategic partnerships with broker groups that continue to provide us with high-quality candidates."
