Venture Auto Parts is a chain of 40 stores offering a full line of auto parts and supplies to consumers and independent auto repair shops. Danny’s Brake and Muffler has over 90 stores in the cities serviced by Venture. Recently, Danny Morton, the founder of Danny’s Brake and Muffler, was approached by Venture with an interesting offer.
