ANTHONY FRANK, COO

Operations Support

Anthony joined the brand in 2020 to run the operations in the eastern Tennessee market. Anthony comes to us with an extensive background in food and beverage operations as we were developing the franchise model. In 2021 he became the first franchise owner.  He supports operations development, training, and field support.

History and Growth

Originally established as East Coast Distributors in 1998, Jay Crabtree purchased the company in 2007 and changed the name to Auxo Medical.  Along with one of the original founders, the leadership team looked to expand offering new services, which were initially offered from the company headquarters in Richmond, VA.

In 2018, 2019, and 2020 the brand expanded with affiliated company operations based in Michigan, Kentucky, and Florida.

Starting in the spring of 2020 and into 2021, throughout the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Auxo Medical technicians were deemed as essential workers. The company started to serve new customers who were in need of specialized services, from repair, preventative maintenance, and refurbishing equipment to used medical equipment sales needed by those in the medical, healthcare, and life sciences industries.

When Anthony Frank joined the company in 2020, it was just as the leadership team was creating the franchise model. His background in restaurant operations – not technical or service related – helped to prove out the model.

It was with confidence that we knew we could support aspiring entrepreneurs with a wide variety of skills, backgrounds, and experiences to become franchise owners with Auxo Medical.  Franchise ownership opportunities with the brand became available in early 2021. The first franchise territory launched in Chattanooga, TN in spring 2021.

We welcome new owners to join the brand and help us to expand to serve customers in new territories.
