Franchise Services of North America Inc. (FSNA) announced the sale of four franchises under the Rent-A-Wreck/PractiCar brand. The franchises are located in the Greater Toronto Area: North Central, Eglington/Yonge, North Mississauga, and Vaughan. The company also announced the entering of an affiliate agreement for the country of Jamaica that has resulted in the U-Save brand now being represented in the Montego Bay and Kingston airports, in addition to the sale of a neighborhood franchise in Orangeburg, S.C., under the U-Save brand.
Bob Barton, the company’s chief operating officer, stated, “We are very excited about the continued development of the Rent-A-Wreck/PractiCar brand in Canada and the continued expansion of the U-Save brand both domestically and into international destinations. The availability to rent cars under the U-Save brand in the major airports in Jamaica helps promote worldwide awareness of the brand to price-conscious consumers. Our development and commitment to the local market also continues with the new agreement in South Carolina. Additionally, we have had several franchisees who have expressed an interest in purchasing the franchise rights to some of the smaller airport markets, or expansion of their existing territory. We are pleased to announce these latest additions to the U-Save and PractiCar/Rent-A-Wreck network of franchises. We look forward to their continued growth and development as partners in our global U-Save Car & Truck Rental and Canadian Rent-A-Wreck/PractiCar brands. I strongly believe that quality franchisees are a very important part of our company and our future.”
