Pit Stop Auto Acquires Micky Franklin's Tire & Auto in Florida

Aug. 10, 2022

Venice, Fla.-based Pit Stop Auto Repair has acquired Micky Franklin's Tire & Auto, a single-store dealership in North Fort Myers, Fla. Pit Stop Auto will continue to operate the outlet under the Micky Franklin's name.

The 7,200-square-foot, 10-bay store - which opened 52 years ago - is in a rapidly growing, high-traffic area and "sits within our current footprint," says Joe Ramsay, Pit Stop's owner and president.

The Micky Franklin's location, which employs eight people, offers a full menu of automotive services, as well as custom wheels, lift kits, off-road accessories and more, notes Ramsay, who owns a total of seven Pit Stop-branded stores along the southwestern coast of Florida.

Another Pit Stop location is currently under construction.
