1-800 Radiator Opens Second Canadian Franchise

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - This week 1-800 Radiator opened their second Canadian 1-800 Radiator outlet. This fast-growing part distributor's new warehouse is located in Calgary and will serve Calgary and the surrounding areas. The locally owned and operated franchise brings 1-800 Radiator's signature same-day delivery and lifetime warranty to Alberta for the first time.

Auto shops and do-it-yourselfers replaced approximately six million radiators each year. 1-800 Radiator delivers brand new radiators to these customers within a couple of hours, and at competitive pricing. This inventive business plan has allowed 1-800 Radiator to dominate the market on automotive cooling accessories and bring their services to dozens of previously untouched territories. Since the start of their franchise program in 2004, this rapid growth has only accelerated. The company has opened over 200 locations in the United States and Canada. Each location is managed and owned by a member of the community it serves.

A 1-800 Radiator franchise consists of a warehouse, a protected territory and a dedicated local businessperson. These local entrepreneurs implement 1-800 Radiator's business model, all the while tailoring it to the needs of the customers in their specific community. Features such as same-day delivery, a lifetime warranty on each part, and a small bag of candy in every radiator box, have helped 1-800 Radiator to gain loyal customers.

To make sure that the constantly changing needs of their customers are met franchise owners visit the auto shops in the area introducing themselves and getting to know the managers personally. For the individual do-it-yourselfers who make up the other portion of their business, these owner operators work to provide consistently excellent service marked by high quality and low prices, backed with a lifetime warranty.
