Toronto, Ontario — November 5, 2018 — CARSTAR opened a new location in Hanna, AB on Friday, celebrating the shop’s grand opening with prizes, a light lunch and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The shop, which is owned by Ryan and Julie Antosh, is located at 109- 1st Avenue.
Ryan has been involved in the industry for over 23 years and was determined to join a network that would allign with his business goals, while also supporting his community.
“It is not hard to see where the industry is going, as more facilities continue to join larger networks to ensure they keep up with rising repair standards,” says Ryan Antosh.
“I wanted to be sure I joined a network where franchise partners raise each other’s standards, so that no matter where customers go, they can expect the same premier experience that they may have received at another CARSTAR location.”
The new 4,500 square foot facility is fully equipped with tools capable of repairing all vehicle makes and models, and features a brand new paint booth. The team at Hanna is currently in the process of completing their I-CAR gold certification.
“Being a part of a network with such an exceptional reputation helps our franchise partners, as they can lean on one another for support, accountability and advice,” says Michael Piper, Western Zone Director, CARSTAR.
“Outside of the comradery within the CARSTAR family, our franchise partners have also found great value in the proprietary EDGE Performance Platform, as it helps owners like Ryan take their business to the next level, while maintaining the local feel.”
