PacLease names TLG Peterbilt PacLease as its North American Franchise of the Year

TLG Peterbilt PacLease, a PacLease franchise with eight leasing locations in six states, has been named the PacLease 2021 North American Franchise of the Year. Headquartered in Springfield, Mo., the franchise offers Peterbilt’s full line of medium- and heavy-duty trucks for lease and rental.

According to Ken Roemer, president of PACCAR Leasing, TLG Peterbilt PacLease grew its fleet by 38% in 2021 over 2020 and added Charlotte, North Carolina as a new operation in its portfolio of leasing locations. In addition to the North American Franchise of the Year award, PacLease recognized its top U.S. and Canadian franchises.

PacLease named Allstate Leasing (headquartered in South St. Paul, with 10 locations), and Gabrielli PacLease (headquartered in Jamaica, NY with 11 locations) as its U.S. Franchises of the Year for Peterbilt and Kenworth. Burnaby, British Columbia-based, Inland PacLease (with 19 Canadian locations), took home the honor as the Franchise of the Year for Canada.

Allstate Leasing is not new to winning national awards from PacLease – having won the top North American Franchise of the Year award in 2019.

Overall, Roemer said in a year that was challenged by numerous global issues impacting transportation, he was extremely pleased with how PacLease franchises pivoted to keep customers operating trucks.
