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.

Steve Pearce
My VW Golf transmission was slipping, after going to 6 different mechanics and transmission places i ended up talking to Steve, He said to bring the car in the next morning. I was there on time and Steve had a hoist empty for my appointment. They put the car on the hoist and topped up the transmission fluid. They didn't try to sell me anything or tell me there were other things wrong with the transmission. I will not hesitate to take my car there if i have a future problem with it.

Cameron Anderson
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and now my transmission is running better than it did before it started slipping. I was provided a courtesy car while mine was out of commission, and that meant I didn’t miss any work shifts. The warranty provided also helps give me a piece of mind that they stand behind their work.
