Wilhelm Automotive, a family owned and operated auto repair business, is nearly ready to open the doors on its seventh store and second franchise location at 52nd Street and Thomas in Phoenix. The Phoenix auto repair location will be open on June 3, 2103, and a Grand Opening is planned for early fall. Wilhelm opened its first franchise location in the Scottsdale Airpark at the beginning of 2013.
Wilhelm Automotive is Arizona’s oldest auto repair shop, and opened its first location in 1928 in Peoria, Ariz., and is celebrating 85 years of business this year. Since then, five more shops in Surprise, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Tatum Ranch and Scottsdale Airpark have opened.
Wilhelm Opens Second Franchise
“We have followed a successful business model for 85 years, which, in part, is to put the satisfaction of our loyal customers first. Our first franchise in the Scottsdale Airpark has been very well received by the community and we look forward to introducing ourselves to this busy neighborhood in Phoenix,” said Wilhelm President Chris Garman.
“Now more than ever, consumers are looking for businesses they can trust with their hard-earned money. We promise to fix their car correctly– the first time– and our customer’s confidence in our work and loyalty to our business is paramount to our success,” Garman said.
