Troy, Michigan-based Ziebart, an aftermarket automotive franchise company that offers wraps, restoration, interior and exterior protection and other services, announces the opening of two new franchises, in Pennsylvania and Texas.
Mike Jensen of Quakertown, Pennsylvania, will be opening up the fourth franchise in that state in Quakertown. He’s planning on a grand opening in July and will be operating the business with his son, Colin.
Dallas will get its first Ziebart franchise when Pankerj Pragji and his wife, Dipa L. Desai, open their location. The couple are currently trying to settle in on a location, but are expected to open their business in the coming months. That will be the third Ziebart location in Texas.
“This year is on track to be another record growth year for franchise development,” says Thomas Wolfe, president and CEO of Ziebart International. “With the addition of these two locations, as well as the expansion in West Seneca, New York, in March, we are excited to extend our reach into these new markets.”
Ziebart International was founded on its flagship service, Genuine Ziebart Rust Protection, in 1959, and the company currently has approximately 400 licensed locations with 950 service centers in 33 countries.
