GB Auto Adds Texas-Based Driver’s Edge Chain

The Greenbriar Equity Group has acquired another repair shop chain, Driver’s Edge Complete Tire & Automotive, to add to its GB Auto Service platform. The deal includes 20 shops in the Dallas-Ft. Worth and Austin areas.

The acquisition increases the company’s foothold in the West, GB Auto Marketing Director Jeffry Gardner said. Greebriar acquired 18 Lamb’s Tire & Automotive Centers in central Texas earlier this summer.

The purchase of Driver’s Edge from BRHACO Holdings was completed in May, and two final Driver’s Edge franchises from TXDM came a few weeks after. Financial terms were not disclosed.

In addition to Driver’s Edge and Lamb’s, GB Auto operates under the BRAKEmax, Tire Works, Ramona, and Evan’s Tire & Service Centers brands.
