Transmission industry leader AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. just announced that its service center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is being recognized by the local The Military Order of the Purple Heart chapter for its dedication to area veterans. The Tulsa franchise business location is owned by the brand's biggest franchisee, Ronda and Thomas Scott, and it has been providing discounted services to veteran residents for over a year.
Franchisee Ronda Scott says that when Tulsa manager Ron Smith received a call from the local chapter because a Purple Heart recipient needed a new transmission, the couple knew they had to help. Since that first call, the center has helped ten other veterans in the local community with their cars and even replaced one car completely. According to Scott, the brand is a strong supporter of the U.S. Armed Forces, and it's the company's duty to thank those who have served the country in any way possible.
The Scotts bought the Tulsa location back in November 2013 and bought a second franchise for sale less than six months later. They quickly made the two locations a success, and both centers are now top performers in their region.
Brand Chief Operating Officer Rob Rajkowski spoke of the company's pride over the Tulsa franchisees and their center manager for the dedication and initiative they've shown the local community through their veteran support. Many AAMCO franchisees give back to their local communities on their own, said Rajkowski, and the franchiser is dedicated to supporting those local initiatives.
