Fleet Enterprises has awarded a multi-territory franchise agreement to Randall Wilkins of Wilmington, North Carolina, as it continues to expand its franchise network presence throughout the United States.
With exclusive rights to start operating in Charlotte, North Carolina, Mr. Wilkins is the newest Fleet Enterprises franchise owner and is scheduled to open a minimum of five operations over the next five years, with plans to open locations in three states. The first of his new franchised operations is now operating.
Now residing in Wilmington with his wife and three children, Mr. Wilkins grew up on a farm in North Carolina, and worked his way up in a variety of different companies as a young man. He also studied Computer Technology in college. His experience includes supervisory and management positions in retail, restaurants, and in the mortgage industry. He has also been a small business owner in a variety of industries, including food service, business services, and consumer services; he was a franchise owner in a national hair salon chain, growing from two locations to seven across two states.
Always searching for a solid business opportunity, Mr. Wilkins learned about Fleet Enterprises through contacts in the franchise industry. He will be a hands-on business owner and operations manager, and plans to hire on-staff mechanics to help him operate each of his locations.
We think Randall is a true business professional and are excited to have him join our team. We are confident in his business skills and that this is the beginning of a great, long-term relationship.
