Dobbs Leasing named PacLease N.A. Franchise of the Year

In 2023, Dobbs Leasing achieved a 71% year-over-year increase in total vehicles in-serviced with PacLease, while adding three new locations.

Dobbs Leasing was named PacLease’s 2023 North American Franchise of the Year. The franchise, headquartered in Sumner, Washington, began operating as a PacLease franchise in 1987 and has since grown to 15 locations in seven states. Dobbs was also recognized as PacLease’s U.S. Peterbilt Franchise of the Year in 2018 and 2020.

According to Ken Roemer, president of PACCAR Leasing, Dobbs Leasing continues to grow in both sales and customer satisfaction, achieving a 71% y/y increase in total vehicles in-serviced with PacLease. Additionally, PacLease says Dobbs added three locations in 2023 (in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas) while achieving a year-over-year increase in total vehicle count.

“Those are remarkable achievements,” said Roemer. “They’ve seen consistent growth for the past four consecutive years, while also increasing their rental fleet size to further serve their customer needs. With high customer retention rates, achieved through premium Peterbilt medium and heavy-duty trucks backed with excellent service levels, Dobbs Leasing is a standout organization. What’s more, with a mobile service fleet of 15 trucks, they can take maintenance services to their customers, helping them reduce downtime.”

In addition to its North American Franchise of the Year award, PacLease recognized its top U.S. and Canadian franchises. Papé Truck Leasing and Rush Truck Leasing were named U.S. Franchises of the Year for Kenworth and Peterbilt. Kenworth Ontario PacLease, headquartered in Toronto, was honored as Franchise of the Year for Canada, while Gabrielli PacLease of Jamaica, New York, was named PacLease’s Medium Duty Franchise of the Year.
