 DETROIT, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The first new Ziebart TidyCar Center in continental Europe has opened in Stuttgart, Germany, with an official grand opening on March 12-13.
 In January 1993, Beauty Car, GmbH, a chain of franchised auto detailing stores headquartered in Bremen, Germany, signed a Master Franchise agreement with Ziebart International Corporation. Mr. Gero Ritter-Reichel, managing director for Beauty Car, is responsible for the franchising of Ziebart TidyCar in Germany. The Ziebart TidyCar Center in Stuttgart is owned by subfranchisees Heinz Hofinger and Horst Finkbeiner.
 Three Beauty Car stores in Bremen and Hamburg will convert to Ziebart TidyCar in spring 1993. Additional stores are scheduled to open in 1993 as Ziebart TidyCar Centers in Bochum, Lubeck, Bremerhaven, and Oldenburg. According to Mr. Ritter-Reichel, there is a potential for over 300 stores in Germany.
 Ziebart TidyCar is experiencing a surge of international growth. Since last May, there have been 14 Ziebart TidyCar stores opened in Korea, 10 in Taiwan, and 10 in Quebec, Canada. The most recent new Master Franchisees are in Germany and Mexico. The United Kingdom, France, Spain and Italy are target areas for expansion in Europe.
