Alta Mere/SmartView Franchise Adds Store in Denton, Texas

Store to Offer Complete Range of Window Tinting and Driver Safety Products

Midlothian, IL (July 11, 2016) – Moran Family of Brands, one of the nation’s leading franchises of general automotive repair, transmission repair and driver safety products, announced the addition of an Alta Mere Automotive Outfitters/SmartView Window Solutions franchise in Denton, TX.

The Alta Mere/SmartView co-branded franchise opened during the first week of July, with a grand opening to be held on August 6. The store is located at 3826 Market St. Denton, TX 76209. A 15,600-square foot facility will house the new Alta Mere/SmartView store and the existing Barebones Auto and Diesel Repair, both of which are owned by John and Jaime Blanton.

Alta Mere offers a complete selection of aftermarket high tech automotive accessories and driver safety products. It provides premium automotive features such as security and radar detection systems, remote starters and keyless entry, and hands-free blue tooth phone systems. They also specialize in exterior services such as custom, state-of-the-art window tinting and paint protection applications.

The SmartView division of the company will be able to provide window tinting solutions to residential and commercial customers in the area. SmartView’s window film provides customers with substantial economic, environmental and safety benefits such as heat deflection, and UV and shatter guard protection. Reflective film can block as much as 83 percent of the sun’s heat, and dramatically lower air conditioning costs.

John and Jaime Blanton will own the Alta Mere/SmartView franchise in Denton. The couple also owns Barebones Auto and Diesel Repair. Opened in 2012, Barebones Auto and Diesel is the fastest growing independent automotive repair shop in Denton County. John is an advanced level, Master ASE certified technician with 30 years of experience in the automotive industry. He is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard and the son of a career Marine. John will oversee both businesses and continue to manage daily operations for Barebones, while Jaime will handle human resources, accounting, payroll, marketing, communications for both businesses and oversee staff for Alta Mere/SmartView.

“We feel strongly about the products and services we will be able to provide through our Alta Mere/SmartView franchise, and we are confident these products will benefit customers in Denton and the surrounding communities,” said John Blanton. “Alta Mere offers a complete selection of driver safety products and automotive accessories that will improve the daily driving experience. Both Alta Mere and SmartView provide window tinting services that can also help motorists, residents and businesses block sun exposure and reduce cooling costs from the intense heat that affects the North Texas area for most of the year.”

The addition of the Alta Mere store in Denton is the fourth franchise in North Texas, with other locations in Dallas, N. Richland Hills and Plano. Alta Mere also has two additional Texas-based stores in Houston and Lubbock.

“Our Alta Mere and SmartView stores in Texas have experienced a tremendous amount of success,” said Peter Baldine, President of Moran Family of Brands. “Our premium selection of driver safety products and window solutions for auto, home and business customers is a great fit for the Denton market. John Blanton has a fantastic reputation for providing honest and affordable service to his customers and we believe he is the perfect person to introduce our products and services to the area.”
