Quick Lane offers routine vehicle maintenance, such as oil and filter changes, light repair services including brake repair and tire replacements on all vehicle makes and models.
The Quick Lane network posted record sales of nearly $800 million for 2013. The first Quick Lane opened in 1998.
Ford also has expanded the program internationally to 100 locations, including 56 in Canada.
The auto maker's plans for the auto centers coincides with Chrysler Group L.L.C.'s announcement that its Mopar parts and service brand is evaluating stand-alone Express Lane quick-stop service centers. Chrysler said about a third of its 2,400 Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram dealerships have Express Lanes in their service departments but only one, in Duncanville, Texas, has opened a four-bay, stand-alone site.
"Quick Lane, and the whole concept, works all across the world," Mr. Toney said, noting that consumers want to come in to get routine light maintenance repair done quickly on their vehicles.
"It's a wonderful concept we are using to actually improve our overall service everywhere in the world...that whole concept works in any market that you can think of."
Mr. Toney said the Canadian business is coming along similarly to that in the U.S., with good growth.
As the company reaches "the 700 plateau," he said it will "see continued growth." Ford has not mapped out the future on a year-over-year basis, according to Mr. Toney, but its next goal is to "get to 1,000 Quick Lanes as soon as possible."
