Mr. Transmission/Milex Store Opens in Cary | Moran Family of Brands

Store to Offer Complete Range of Automotive and Transmission Repair

Midlothian, IL (March 22, 2018) – Moran Family of Brands, one of the nation’s leading franchises of general automotive repair, transmission repair and driver safety products, announced its newest franchise location with a Mr. Transmission/Milex Complete Auto Care store in Cary, North Carolina.

The Mr. Transmission/Milex co-branded franchise opened on March 1 and is located at 303 Bowden St. in Cary at the site of the former Bowden Street Automotive shop. Mr. Transmission/Milex retained all the employees of the former store and will hire several additional shop assistants. A grand opening is planned for April.

Mr. Transmission/Milex will offer customers in the area a comprehensive selection of automotive repair and maintenance services. Mr. Transmission specializes in repair and installation of a vehicle’s transmission systems and drivetrain components. Milex provides customers with preventative maintenance services such as oil changes, brake repair, and radiator and cooling systems and engine repair along with a full range of diagnostic services.

The new franchise is owned by Steve Sargent. He purchased the store following an extensive career in sales leadership and business development, primarily in pharmaceutical sales. Sargent also has experience in business ownership through establishing a hospital consulting firm earlier in his career.

“I think the addition of a Mr. Transmission/Milex franchise to Cary will be a great fit to the area,” said Steve Sargent. “We bring the credibility and many advantages of a national brand to the market, and that will be a tremendous benefit for customers in the area. I’ve always had an interest in vehicles and think we will be a one-stop shop for any kind of automotive or transmission repair needs.”

The Mr. Transmission/Milex store is the third in North Carolina and the first in the Raleigh-Durham area. There are also Mr. Transmission/Milex franchise shops in Winston-Salem and Matthews.

“We have great expectations of our newest franchise location in Cary and what it will mean for customers in the area,” said Peter Baldine, President of Moran Family of Brands. “Steve is very detail oriented and focused on providing exceptional customer service. His honest approach in working with customers is consistent with Moran’s company values.”
