, Jim Lager Acquires PIRTEK
Love Field, Dallas, Texas.
Love Field, TX - Often referred to as a natural entrepreneur by friends and family, the Snap-On Tools multi-unit franchise
owner, Jim Lager strikes again in Texas!
On October 15, Lager took over PIRTEK's corporate-owned location as franchise
owner, in Love Field which only opened three months ago.
"I was searching for a business to business opportunity
in Texas and was struck by the similarities in set-up, sales and mobile service vans between PIRTEK
and Snap-On. I was impressed by the individual franchise
support it offers franchise owners and I am thrilled to purchase this PIRTEK center," explains Lager.
Self-employed since he completed his military service in the Army, Lager returned from Germany to the United States to earn his Master's in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota through the G.I. Bill. Lager always knew he wanted to own his own business
and work in a hands-on environment, so he joined the Snap-On Tools corporation. Lager quickly realized he could rise up the ladder from sales manager to owner, so he did and is now a multiple owner of 4 franchises
, all located in Plano, Texas!
"The fact that PIRTEK
had been successful in Plano made the purchase of PIRTEK Love Field even more attractive for me. I knew it was a solid choice knowing it will continue to serve a growing market in the Dallas area and offer customers an accessible location with 4 mobile vans to service its surrounding manufacturing, industrial and construction industries," states Lager.
The 4,800 square foot center is conveniently located in a new strip center at 3131 Irving Boulevard, Suite 600 and is surrounded by industrial and manufacturing customers. It is also just minutes from downtown.
