AAA unveiled plans to build a Car Care Plus facility in Tampa today. This is the association’s first of its kind in the state. The facility will be similar to this one in Chicago.

For the first time in Florida, AAA will service and repair members and non-members’ automobiles at the new facility. The nearly 17,000 square-foot structure will have 11 service bays and create 13 new automotive jobs. Traditional AAA services will also be provided, including: travel, insurance, banking, and membership.

Although construction has already begun on the new facility, AAA held a ceremonial groundbreaking event today in Tampa. The facility is being built at 1701 N Westshore Boulevard, and will replace the existing office, which is now more than 50 years old. 

The AAA Car Care Plus is scheduled to open this summer.
