NORMAN, Okla. — Leeds West Groups (LWG) has acquired a Midas-branded franchise in Norman, expanding its Midas network in the Sooner State to six locations.
Leeds West bought the franchise and the location's real estate from Abdolmohammad Vafaei, who according to LWG has now retired. The purchase price and terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Norman store will operate under the district management of Steve Cascio, who oversees the Midas Oklahoma market within LWG's Auto Systems Expert Division, as well as under ASE COO Alan Mahrt and LWG COO Derek Wessels.
LWG acquired ASE, an employee-owned company out of Davenport, Iowa, along with its 42 Midas locations in the Midwest in 2017.
