Local Businessmen Open 1-800 Radiator Outlet in Killeen

Jason Verette and Justin Bradford Bring 1-800 Radiator to Central Texas

KILLEEN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- Last Monday Jason Verette and Justin Bradford launched 1-800 Radiator of Central Texas. The warehouse is the fifteenth 1-800 Radiator location in the state of Texas. Verette and Bradford offer same-day delivery of radiators and cooling components to Killeen, Bastrop, Belden, Waco, Taylor and the surrounding areas.

Even before 1-800 Radiator began franchising in 2004 they made their mark on the auto parts industry delivering brand new radiators to the auto shops and do-it-yourselfers that replace them. 1-800 Radiator distinguished themselves from other distribution companies by delivering many of these parts within several hours and guaranteeing each radiator for life. Since the start of their franchise program 1-800 Radiator has become the nation's largest independent direct distributor of cooling accessories. Each 1-800 Radiator franchise consists of a warehouse and a protected territory for each locally owned franchisee. Because these territories are proprietary there are only 250 franchises available in the United States. The company expects to award all of these locations within the next three years.

Justin Bradford and Jason Verette spent nearly ten years in the Killeen area operating a successful IT consultancy firm together. They developed a strong appreciation for the customer and an unparalleled commitment to service. "We are excited about getting out there to meet and greet our customers," says Bradford. "We want to let them know what we are offering." They hope to set themselves apart in Central Texas' automotive industry with their same-day delivery and expansive inventory.

Justin Bradford and Jason Verette's 1-800 Radiator outlet opened on Monday, April 23 in Killeen.
