ABRA Auto Body & Glass Adds Minnesota Franchise

ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a Minneapolis-based damaged vehicle repair company, announced the opening of its eighty-eighth repair center today.

Located in Red Wing, MN, the franchise was awarded to Harold Kracht.

Mark Wahlin, Director of Franchising, commented on ABRA's decision to award this franchise to Kracht: "I have been a friend of Harold's for years, and therefore know that his work ethics and integrity mirror ABRA's values. After completing a successful 23-year career as an engineer with 3M, I knew that Harold had the desire to operate his own company. When the opportunity arose for a franchise in Red Wing, we knew that Harold and ABRA would be the perfect fit."

The repair center, located at 4902 Moundview Drive, initially will consist of 6000 square feet, and employ a general manager, one estimator, one body technician, one paint technician, and a detailer.

When asked of his decision to open an ABRA franchise, Kracht commented, "I've been aware of ABRA's track record for years, and have always been impressed with their commitment to superior service and excellent craftsmanship. I know that the procedures, training, and marketing support provided by their corporate staff will allow us to deliver industry-leading levels of efficiency and quality to the Red Wing market."

ABRA Auto Body & Glass is a national damaged vehicle repair company specializing in collision repair, paintless dent removal, and auto glass repair and replacement. Started with one repair center in 1984, they have grown to eighty-eight facilities in ten states. Their plans for accelerated national growth over the next several years include acquiring existing facilities and building new locations.
