TROY, MI, March 22, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Fleet Enterprises, a fleet maintenance company that provides mobile repair and maintenance services to the transportation industry, has announced that it has awarded a six-territory franchise agreement to Jerry Duda, as it continues to expand its franchise network presence throughout the Midwest region of the United States.
With rights to open operations in Indiana and Ohio, the first of the new franchised operations opened in Indianapolis in early February of this year, with two more currently underway. By the end of the year, three additional franchise locations are scheduled to open and join the growing network of Fleet Enterprises franchises across the region.
"We were pleased to be able to notify our national customers of Jerry's new service locations," said Darin Gross, Co-Owner of Fleet Enterprises. "Of course, we're also excited to have Jerry as part of our team. He is an experienced business professional and his enthusiasm is truly contagious"
A father of two children who has been married for 26 years, Mr. Duda is a long-time business owner and entrepreneur. He had been involved in the robotic automation industry for the past 30 years. With a degree in finance marketing from Wayne State University, Mr. Duda learned about Fleet Enterprises and was intrigued by the low startup costs and the potential return on investment.
"I had been witnessing a shift in the robotics industry and knew it was time for me to make a change. I was impressed with the Fleet Enterprises system and their professionalism," Mr. Duda stated. "Since I opened my first franchise location in Indiana, I've been very pleased with my sales. And, I'm tremendously excited and optimistic about this new chapter in my career."
The Fleet Enterprises franchise program was developed to create opportunity for ASE certified truck and trailer technicians that want to become independent business owners, as well as for other business professionals seeking a viable growth opportunity. Franchise owners benefit from the support of a growing national brand with an established operating system that has been developed by a professional team with decades of industry experience. Mr. Duda plans to hire mechanics as employees to operate each of his locations, while he manages overall operations. During his start-up period and beyond, he will have the full support of the Fleet Enterprises franchisor organization.
"There is no slowing down Jerry. His first Indianapolis location has had a great start, so I'd definitely say he's off and running," said Tony DiMambro, Co-Owner of Fleet Enterprises. "We're confident in his abilities and we also remain confident about Fleet Enterprises' overall growth goals and our achievements to date."
