Local Entrepreneur Opens Wisconsin's Second 1-800 Radiator Franchise

MARSHFIELD, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 6, 2006 -- This Monday 1-800 Radiator announced the opening of their second Wisconsin outlet for business. The new warehouse, located in Marshfield, is owned by David Schnitzler. By teaming up with entrepreneurs like Schnitzler, 1-800 Radiator has more than doubled their warehouses and territories.

1-800 Radiator made their mark on the auto parts industry by delivering brand new radiators to the auto shops and do-it-yourselfers that replace them. They set themselves apart from similar services by delivering many of these radiators within several hours and guaranteeing each part for life. This innovative business model has enabled them to become the nation's largest independent direct distributor of cooling accessories, and 1-800 Radiator has grown from a three million dollar company to a company with over $64 million in revenue. Each 1-800 Radiator franchise location is locally managed by an experienced businessman. Because each of these warehouses is managed at a local level 1-800 Radiator is able to maintain a high standard of service across the country.

David Schnitzler has experience in sales, customer service and business management. To supplement this business experience, 1-800 Radiator provided him with comprehensive training on the ins and outs of the radiator industry, access to the largest cooling component inventory in the nation, and strong corporate support. Like other 1-800 Radiator franchisees, Schnitzler brings a strong commitment to the community to his territory. As a local owner, he hopes to offer comprehensive customer service to customers in Marshfield and the surrounding areas.

David Schnitzler's 1-800 Radiator outlet opened for business on Monday, October 2, 2006.
