Topic: Franchise Spotlight

With a combined 35 years experience directly in the automotive aftermarket industry & B2B sales market (print, promotions, sales, etc) it’s no wonder; co-owners Andrew & David Franze (also father & son) were such a great fit to take over the Brampton territory for Northside Autosports®. They have since purchased the adjacent territories of Halton Hills (Georgetown), Caledon & Orangeville.

“I’ve watched the company grow for over 13 years as first a customer, then General Manager at a corporate facility and now franchise owner. I left the company temporarily to take a high value position in the energy sector out west a few years ago after years of managing a corporate location. When I found out corporate wanted to re-structure this territory I jumped at the opportunity.” - Andrew Franze, Co-Owner of Northside Autosports® Brampton.

“I got to know the concept when my son worked there and became a customer. It was truly addictive being in an industry built on passion. From there I got to know the corporate team and remained close with them as a friend for a number of years. On a sales trip I just happened along one of their locations in another province and I thought ‘wow they really took’ off. It wasn’t long after my son contacted me to say he was moving home from Alberta and that he had been talking to the corporate team about re-joining the team. It was almost fate; things came together so nicely. This opportunity came up and we jumped right on it. We’ve since made plans to open multiple other locations in near proximity markets and are considering further growth plans for after that stage.” - David Franze Co-Owner of Northside Autosports® Brampton.

Since a great grand re-opening event early in 2014 (at their new upgraded Brampton location) the franchise has grown exponentially becoming the “go-to” stop for all enthusiasts, off road jeep clubs, local car clubs & local dealerships. David & Andrew have grown the business and are eager to give you a hand with any auto related matter they can assist you with. For direct sales & appointment inquiries please call 1-289-401-9725 or you can visit their location at 157 East Drive, Brampton, Ontario (just north of Steeles & Torbram).

“The past few years have been pretty fortunate for us and the company overall has maintained its growth & business plan for a consistent 13 years. For that and many other reasons I have decided to actually take an active role with the corporate team as well as maintaining my co-ownership of the Brampton franchise and accept the position of National Franchise Director. This new position affords me the oversight to help the corporate team select the key players from its long list of applicants that we all feel would be of great value to our brand family. My son is also working directly with the corporate team to further develop the stores merchandising plans with key house brands & online ordering/appointment systems. The approach here is the same as one of our main reasons for wanting to join the company, it’s really treated as more of a family and once your officially affiliated with them everybody’s opinion is relevant and valid. That style of ‘round table’ management where all franchise partners get a vote or opinion on major business development plans is what feel will ultimately set this company & its brand apart from anybody else in the marketplace.” – David Franze
