Sea Tow Expands Operation...

Sea Tow Services International recently announced the opening of franchises in three lake areas: Lake Eufaula (Ala.), Lake Lewisville (Texas), and Table Rock Lake in Missouri.

"These additions reflect the strength of Sea Tow’s brand recognition and the increased value of the Sea Tow franchise business model," said Capt. Tim Wilson, Sea Tow’s director of franchise development, in a statement.

The company also announced the sales and transfers of ownership of two existing franchise areas: Walter Garschagen is the new owner of Sea Tow Central Hudson (N.Y.); Jim and Jan Pulley are the new owners of Sea Tow Table Rock Lake (Mo.).

The new franchise owners were awarded certificates for their completion of the Sea Tow training program, which includes on-water and classroom instruction at the company’s corporate headquarters in Southold, N.Y.
