Meet Chris…

Franchise Owner Chris Anderson has been in the automotive industry for over 30 years. While in high school, he started vacuuming cars at a quick lube and worked his way up to managing dozens of locations in multiple states. In 2003, he came to vacation in Florida and that was all it took. He returned home, sold his house and immediately moved to the Tampa Bay area. He’s originally from Long Island, West Islip to be exact. Interestingly, when asked who his favorite sports team is, he answers, “Bacon!” since he doesn’t follow sports.

Service Manager Becomes Shop Owner

Chris Anderson was announced as the newest franchise owner of the Ice Cold Air® shop at 1406 North 4th Street, near beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg (DTSP). Anderson is a familiar face to the loyal customers of his neighborhood’s shop; he has served as the Manager at the location since last year. Chris moved to St. Pete in 2009 and usually walks or bikes to work. “I walk and bike everywhere: work, the grocery store. It’s funny right? I am a mechanic that rides his bike everywhere.” But Anderson also has 30 years of experience in the automotive industry. He started vacuuming cars at a quick lube and worked his way up to managing dozens of locations in multiple states.

Born and raised in West Islip, Long Island, in 2003 Chris came to Florida on vacation and fell in love with the area. He returned home, sold his house and immediately moved down to the Tampa Bay area. He says when he later moved to DTSP, “that was when I knew I was where I wanted to be. I just love this city. It’s beautiful, fun, full of great people,” Anderson said. He adds, “it’s a great place to search for happiness and that’s what I enjoy doing.”

Anderson is looking forward to making the shop a family business later this year. His 19-year-old son, Chris Jr., graduates from Fivay High School in Hudson. “He loves cars and already has some experience as a lube-technician. We have a great team for him to apprentice under. I can’t wait for the opportunity to work together.”
