200 Down, More to Come: Combo Glass, Collision Brand Hits Milestone

On May 3, Fix Auto USA celebrated the opening of its 200th location in Palm Desert, California.

Fix Auto USA is an automotive collision and glass repair brand headquartered in San Diego. The company is a franchise of independently owned shops. Charlotte, North Carolina-based Driven Brands acquired Fix Auto USA in 2020. Driven Brands also owns Auto Glass Now.

The 200th location belongs to Henry Arroyo, and it is the fifth Fix Auto USA shop he owns. Henry and his wife, Gloria, are known for giving back to the community through their businesses, making the 200th milestone celebration popular.

“He’s been a fantastic owner for us, very charitable, very involved with the community, and it’s very exciting for us to have him be the 200th location,” Fix Auto USA’s president, Dennis O’Mahoney, says.

Sabrina Thring, the collision brands president for Driven Brands, adds, “The Arroyos are just an extremely pay-it-forward family, and in all my time knowing Gloria, Henry and their family, they’re just phenomenal people. Really gracious, very supportive, very involved in their community.”

The shop celebrated the opening with a special event. According to O’Mahoney, reaching the 200th shop is a milestone Fix Auto USA has had since before he joined the company.

“For us to have 200 stores was just absolutely fantastic, and it’s a target we’ve had our vision on for quite some time,” he says. “Now we’ve hit it. And now we can focus on continuing great, quality repairs and go on to our next milestone.”

This includes continued expansion. Fix Auto USA intends to open around 25 total locations in 2024, according to O’Mahoney, while maintaining the company’s standard of excellence.

“As you grow, you always want to make sure you’re maintaining quality and consistency within the organization as a whole,” he says.
