“The auto repair industry can always improve its impression on consumers and we believe that by supporting local shops, keeping money in our communities and offering the value of a trusted mechanic is how we will do it."
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011
NARPRO, The Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals has signed their first franchisee outside of Arizona and is on their way to making NARPRO a sensation across the country. NARPRO is a unique referral service that helps consumers find reliable mechanical and auto body repair at NARPRO.com. All shops listed on the website have passed NARPRO’s 26 tests of quality, integrity and customer satisfaction ensuring that no matter which shop the consumer selects, they will get experienced, highly competent, honest service.
To facilitate its expansion, NARPRO is seeking auto repair industry and/or sales professionals looking to make an investment in their future by owning a local NARPRO chapter. The most desirable candidates will have a pleasant and professional demeanor, the drive to build a successful business, and a sincere interest in helping NARPRO promote the positive aspects of the auto repair industry.
NARPRO, The Network of Neighborhood Auto Repair Professionals is pleased to announce that Dan Dumbauld is the new Affiliate for the state of Oregon. Dumbauld, a shop owner for over 32 years in Phoenix, Ariz., has earned the AAM (Accredited Automotive Manager) designation. Dan has been listed as an honored professional in the Nationwide Register’s Who’s Who in Executives and Businesses and is a past appointed member of the National Car Care Center Advisory Council for Parts Plus.
Dumbauld, 54, has always had plans to “retire” in Oregon and will launch a NARPRO Network group there this year. Dan’s experiences and personal qualities make him an ideal franchise owner. He is an industry proponent, has great people skills, proven integrity and, because his shop has been a NARPRO member since 2006, he has seen first hand the benefits that NARPRO can deliver to the consumer, the shop owner, the industry and the community.
To remain an industry leader, Dan and his team remain active participants with the Automotive Service Association (ASA), Automotive Management Institute (AMI), Parts Plus, The Better Business Bureau, AAA, Elite Pro Service and the Automotive Repair Partners of Arizona (ARPA).
“We launched NARPRO because we saw a need for reliable, quality auto repair and knew there were a lot of smaller, independent shops who didn’t have the opportunities to promote themselves like the big chains,” said Alan Tarr, NARPRO’s Executive Director. “The auto repair industry can always improve its impression on consumers and we believe that by supporting local shops, keeping money in our communities and offering the value of a trusted mechanic is how we will do it.”
