Ford Celebrates 700th Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center
Ford Motor Company has reason to celebrate after opening its 700th Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center location in Texas, meaning more drivers will be able to get a quick and easy tune up than ever before. The opening of this store makes Ford’s Quick Lane one of the quickest growing service brands in the industry.
“Quick Lane works for everyone—the customer, the dealer, and the community,” said Frederick Toney, vice president, Ford Motor Company and president, Ford Customer Service.
“For the customer, it’s easy in, easy out, and fast, high-quality service all around. For the dealer, it provides a steady stream of new customers from all makes, a significant portion of who sometimes transition to Ford vehicle ownership. For the community, it’s another source of jobs, and represents early career experience for young technicians who develop essential trade skills before moving on to bigger jobs in the dealership repair shops.”
In 2013 alone, Quick Lane sold a record 1.4 million tires, while also posting record year sales of nearly $800 million in 2013. In addition to the 700th Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center in the United States, Ford has opened more than 100 stores in international markets around the world.
