Mario Gonzalez and Sebastian Pacheco are business partners who opened a multi-branded franchise location this summer which offers customers a complete range of automobile and transmission repair and driver safety services. Their Tampa, Florida-based store consists of Mr. Transmission, Milex, Alta Mere, and SmartView. The unique combination all-in-one location is a first of its kind.
“We want to provide residents in the Tampa area with a one-stop shop that can meet all of their car care needs,” said Sebastian Pacheco. “We can handle any kind of auto repair service while also giving our customers some additional options if they want to enhance the appearance or safety of their vehicle.”
Gonzalez and Pacheco moved to Tampa from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Gonzalez owned an auto repair store in Argentina and Pacheco spent 15 years working in advertising for a local television station. The two met five years ago and shared a mutual love of working on cars and a desire to own a business in the United States. After doing extensive research, they determined Tampa was the perfect location for a franchise offering a wide range of automotive services.
The partners operate the four brands in a 4,000 square foot facility that opened last June.
All four of the brands are part of the Moran Family of Brands.
