WAUKEE, Iowa — Car-X Tire & Auto franchisee Mark Goldner has opened his 10th Car-X location in Iowa, a 10-bay, greenfield store in Waukee, a western suburb of Des Moines.
The opening is the second in the past six months for Mr. Goldner's company, MJG Development L.L.C. In September, his business opened a Car-X location in Johnston, Iowa, a northern suburb of Des Moines.
Mr. Goldner has been operating Car-X Tire stores in the greater Des Moines area since 1998 and nine of his 10 stores are in that region; the 10th is in Ames.
He did not disclose the investment to build and open the new store, nor say how many employees the shop employs.
Mr. Goldner credits his success to his "highly trained staff and well-seasoned store management team" and said job No. 1 is keeping the customer's vehicles running correctly, while fixing only what needs fixing.
