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.

Great Managment with a Fun and Productive Work Enviroment
Administrative Assistant
Working at Mister Transmission has been great. The workplace culture is fun and upbeat, my coworkers are kind and knowledgeable, and the management truly wants to see everyone succeed and do well. There is a nice mix of fast-paced and slow-paced work, meaning you are always busy but not always stressed about a deadline. There is a good amount of work-life balance and management is understanding.
