Meineke Acquires 12 Shops In Ontario

Meineke Canada, part of the Driven Brands group of automotive companies, has purchased 12 CAA Car Care Centres formerly owned and operated by CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO). CAA South Central Ontario is a not-for-profit auto club, offering roadside services, as well as travel and insurance programs.

The acquisition expands Meineke’s presence in Canada, giving the chain a total of 50 locations nationwide.

Three of the acquired locations will be owned and operated by Meineke franchisee and retired Canadian professional hockey player Wendel Clark, who opened his first Meineke shop in 2013. Two separate Meineke franchisees will purchase the remaining nine locations.

Over the next few months, Meineke will work to integrate the CAA SCO and existing Meineke locations in Ontario. Meineke has been providing automotive services in Canada since 1981.
