Cronin Family Opens Their Second 1-800 Radiator Outlet

Dan Cronin Opens 1-800 Radiator Warehouse in Worcester, the Distribution Center Will Compliment His Brother's 1-800 Radiator Location in Manchester, New Hampshire

WORCESTER, MA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - This Monday Dan Cronin opens 1-800 Radiator of Worcester for business. This is the second outlet owned and operated by the Cronin family. Dan's brother Justin is the owner of 1-800 Radiator's outlet in Manchester, New Hampshire. Dan started working at his brother's outlet in Manchester last September. By opening his own outlet he increases his stake in 1-800 Radiator and joins Justin as a franchise owner.

Dan's experience working in the Manchester warehouse franchise means that operating his own warehouse will not be a big leap. His practice with 1-800 Radiator's computer systems and inventory management make him well prepared to take on his own distribution hub. Additionally, Dan's background in sales and account management has given him an eagerness for building solid customer relationships and providing the highest quality service available. "I want to build relationships with my customers that are based on trust, and accountability," Dan says before explaining that he has already been visiting his customers, introducing himself and giving out his phone number.

Auto shops and do-it-yourselfers replaced approximately six million radiators each year. With 1-800 Radiator Dan Cronin will deliver 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. With businesspersons like Dan Cronin 1-800 Radiator has opened over 200 locations nationwide. Each location is managed and owned by a member of the community it serves.

Dan Cronin plans to maintain a dedicated clientele by offering personable service at reasonable prices. He also plans to expand his inventory to include a variety of A/C components in addition to the radiators, AC condensers, side mirrors, fuel tanks and fan assemblies he carries now. Cronin will work to provide consistently excellent service marked by high quality and low prices, backed with a lifetime warranty to auto shop owners and individual car owners alike.

Dan Cronin's 1-800 Radiator outlet opened for business on Monday, June 9th 2008.
