Crash Champions announced June 21 it has entered into an agreement with Mike’s Auto Body, a leading family-owned collision repair MSO in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Slated to close in early August, all 17 Mike’s Auto Body locations will operate under the Crash Champions name and banner, bringing the company’s total number of shops in California to 51.
