MMO Group, the franchising arm of Vast-Auto Distribution is now the exclusive Master Franchisor of Mister Transmission for the province of Quebec.

TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2015 – Mister Transmission, Canada’s largest chain of transmission and technology experts is beginning a significant expansion into the Quebec market, expected to result in the opening of 20 new locations in the next several years.  This growth initiative begins today with the announcement of a long-term development agreement with MMO Group, Vast-Auto Distribution’s auto care franchising division who owns and operates Mister Muffler, Monsieur Muffler, and OCTO Auto Service Plus with a combined 80 automotive repair facilities across Quebec and Ontario.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mister Transmission has granted Master Franchise rights to MMO Group for the province of Quebec with the objective of developing the brand and increasing its presence in the region.

Quebec has proven to be a large identifiable market for automotive aftermarket service providers, and currently there is no one like Mister Transmission in this marketplace. “We are always searching for ways to strategically exploit our current automotive franchising expertise and resources to differentiate ourselves.  We believe this partnership with Mister Transmission provides a unique specialization that will diversify our franchise portfolio without competing with our current brands,” says Daniel Malandruccolo, Vice President, MMO Group. “It is a very welcoming arrangement, they provide automotive aftermarket management expertise in Quebec, and we supply our brand with over 50 years of tools for success,” says Randall Moore, President and CEO, Mister Transmission (International). “We are very proud to be new partners with MMO Group, and can foresee them exceeding the forecasted growth plans.”

With shops in almost every province across Canada, it has been a long-term goal to one day expand the Mister Transmission brand into Quebec. This new partnership is sure to offer added value to the province, more to come from this iconic brand.

MMO Group is actively seeking potential Mister Transmission franchisees interested in a business opportunity throughout the province of Quebec.  The company has made the franchising opportunity especially interesting by offering a franchise initiative that includes a well-recognized brand, dedicated support staff, advertising support, and financial assistance.

Frank was very upfront and straight-forward when discussing recommended service without pressure or upselling. After the multi-check was completed, he was able to perform the recommended services (fluid flush/fill and transmission service) immediately. He gladly too time to answer any questions, explained the repairs done and seemed to genuinely appreciate the business. It was my first time to Mister Transmission and I was very impressed!

Frank Matchett - You fit our vehich

Frank Matchett - You fit our vehichle (Toyota Celica) into the Coquitlam Shop so quickly on Monday, June 29th. I am from Kamloops. This was during Canada Day week too. You found a transmission on Vancouver Island and even offered to pick it up yourself if possible. You personally dropped me off and picked me up at the location I was staying at on Port Moody. I so appreciated that kindness. You went above and beyond and kept me, reassured that I would be home on Thursday. My husband was not with me yet you communicated the updates with both him & myself (he was in Kamloops.) You were wonderful with your communication, swiftness in finding the part, I\'m grateful that you fit my car in during this holiday week & your kindness to drop me off & pick me up was so appreciated. So thankful for all that you did Frank Matchett. Sincerely - Mrs. K Devlin
