Pat’s family business, Sandone Tire and Car Care Centers, was looking for a solution that would give them the same visibility online as the big-box stores at a price that an independent, family-owned business could afford. The problem was this solution didn’t exist. There were only high-priced solutions that only those with massive marketing budgets could afford, or there were more affordable solutions that didn’t provide the results Pat was looking for.
Rather than give up on his family business, Pat decided to develop his own solution. But why stop there? Pat soon realized that there were hundreds of other shops just like his family’s that were looking for the same kind of solution. Together, these businesses could keep the big-box stores and online sellers at bay.
Net Driven started in a one room office located in Scranton, PA, and has quickly grown to include over 70 employees. Don’t worry, we’ve since moved into a much larger space. That would be a little awkward.
Today, we are in over 5,000 tire and automotive shops across North America, and we’re still growing. We are also settled into our headquarters, which suits our personality pretty well. In the Spring of 2015, we were acquired by Internet Brands and welcomed into their group of automotive industry-specific companies. This strong alliance has allowed us to excel even more at what we do for our customers.
