Enterprising Charleston Local Opens 1-800 Radiator's Fifth South Carolina Outlet

Summerville Location to Serve Charleston, Summerville, and the Surrounding Cities

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - In Charleston this Monday Jay Fincher, a local businessman, opened automotive parts distributor 1-800 Radiator's fifth South Carolina outlet. As a locally owned family business, 1-800 Radiator of Charleston promises high quality service to their customers in Charleston and nearby cities. The outlet is one of three 1-800 Radiator locations opened across the nation this week.

1-800 Radiator's hold on the automotive industry has increased steadily since the start of their franchise program in 2004. By joining forces with entrepreneurs and small businessmen, the company has become the nation's largest independent distributor of cooling components. Six million radiators are replaced each year; 1-800 Radiator provides the repair shops and do-it-yourselfers that need these parts with brand new radiators delivered to the doors of their businesses and homes. 1-800 Radiator attributes much of their success to the combination of their buying power and large inventory with the community knowledge and dedication of their franchisees.

Fincher has spent the last eight years working in and managing area businesses, working both inside and outside of the automotive industry. This experience has given him a comprehensive understanding of his territory and the people in it. Now that he is starting his own business, Fincher hopes to apply this understanding to creating the best buying experience available to his customers.

Jay Fincher is excited to manage the 1-800 Radiator outlet in Charleston. His initial plans for the territory include intense concentration on service, particularly focusing on building relationships with his wholesale clientele by making visits and getting to know these customers. As a local owner Fincher has an intimate knowledge of the area, this will serve him well as a franchisee.

Jay Fincher's 1-800 Radiator outlet opened this Monday, July 9, 2007. Local shops and vehicle owners can reach the warehouse by calling (843) 851-1101 or 1-800 723 4286.
