1-800 Radiator Opens Outlet in Ft. Wayne

Tara Priddle's Parts Distribution Center Serves Ft. Wayne, Defiance and Lima

FT. WAYNE, IN--(Marketwire - February 8, 2008) - 1-800 Radiator recently opened their sixth Indiana outlet. The fast growing part distributor's new outlet will serve Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas. Local businesswoman Tara Priddle owns and operates the outlet with the help of her brother, Ryan Walsh. With the opening the brother-sister team brings 1-800 Radiator's signature same-day delivery and lifetime warranty to customers in Ft. Wayne and the surrounding communities.

Auto shops and do-it-yourselfers replaced approximately six million radiators last year. 1-800 Radiator delivers brand new radiators to these customers within a couple of hours, and at competitive pricing. This inventive business plan has allowed 1-800 Radiator to dominate the market on automotive cooling accessories and bring their services to dozens of previously untouched territories. Since the start of their franchise program in 2004 this rapid growth has only accelerated. With businesspersons like Tara Priddle 1-800 Radiator has opened over 200 locations nationwide. Each location is managed and owned by a member of the community it serves.

When asked what motivated her to start up her own 1-800 Radiator franchise Tara is quick to reply, "I wanted to be part of the local business community," she says. Tara plans to get an edge on the competition "by demonstrating strong customer service with a personal touch." She plans to combine great service with features such as same-day delivery, a lifetime warranty on each part, and a small bag of candy in every radiator box, to gain loyal customers and maintain this elevated standard of service.

Tara has already begun visiting the auto shops in the area, introducing herself and getting to know the owners personally. For the individual do-it-yourselfers who make up the other portion of her business, she will work to provide consistently excellent service marked by high quality and low prices, backed with a lifetime warranty. In 1-800 Radiator of Ft. Wayne Tara Priddle's commitment to customer service combines with 1-800 Radiator's buying power and technical support to create the best possible buying experience for auto shop owners and do-it-yourselfers alike.
