Sixt SE and its U.S. Franchise Unit (Sixt Franchise USA, LLC) announce the opening of a new branch to service the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, California. This is the second Sixt branch in Sonoma County, preceded by a branch that opened last year which services the Santa Rosa local area.
"Sonoma County has many attractions like golf, cycling, beaches, shopping, and is also well-known for its fine cuisine and wine culture," said Sixt franchise owner Steve Schneider. "We are grateful for the response from the community and have doubled the size of our initial fleet with premium-cars and staff to meet the needs and wishes of our customers."
Sixt operates corporate branches servicing airports in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Knoxville, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Phoenix, San Jose, Seattle, Tampa and West Palm Beach (sixt.com), along with many downtown branches in the US. The Sixt franchise system is a proven international success, with more than 80 master franchisees operating from nearly 1,100 worldwide locations. Automotive dealership owners, independent car rental operators, and entrepreneurs are great candidates for Sixt franchises. In the U.S., Sixt franchisees are already operating locations in nine states with openings in additional states planned for later this year. Sixt plans to further expand in the U.S. with a step by step, measured approach of both franchise and corporate expansion.
