Meineke Canada’s newest Car Care Centre opens today with former Maple Leafs captain Wendel Clark front and centre.
Clark, with partners Andrew Jackson and Cam Campli, plan to open two additional Meineke franchise locations over the next two years. Promotions expert Jackson, specializes in celebrity placement and event planning through Jackson Events. Campli and wife Rita, have been successful Meineke franchise owners for over six years. Together, the trio bring business savvy and celebrity muscle to North Americas 900-locations-strong Meineke Car Care Centers team.
Clark will take a hands-on role to help grow Meineke Canada retail sales and franchises, starting with this first Meineke Car Care Centre at 5767 Hwy. 7 in Vaughan, ON.
Said Meineke Canada vice-president and GM Duane Arbeau, “Few athletes have made as big an impression on Canadian sports fans as Wendel Clark, whose scoring prowess and strong physicality were major contributors during some of the Leafs’ most exciting seasons. As a King City resident, Vaughan’s a natural fit for Clark’s first Meineke franchise.”
Meineke Car Care Centers have been providing automotive services since 1972 and in Canada since 1981.
Added Arbeau, “With high brand recognition and a wide range of diversified offerings, Meineke Canada is perfectly positioned for growth during a time when vehicle owners are once again hanging onto their vehicles longer, opting to invest in maintenance and repairs. Meineke has an aggressive growth strategy and intends to open 75 new locations within the next five years.”
