Business Description: Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting Centers provide automotive body repair repainting and refinishing services to consumers.
Anthony Martino (who also co-founded the AAMCO Transmissions franchise) started Maaco in 1972. Driven Brands which also manages several other franchises including Meineke, Econo Lube N' Tune, AutoQual and Aero Colours purchased MAACO in 2008.
Today MAACO controls almost 50% of entire marketshare within the segment.
Looking at the opportunity from a revenue perspective Maaco body shops average almost $400,000 more than the average independent bodyshop, and many independent bodyshops have transitioned into Maaco shops. If you are not completely sold on what benefits a franchise will offer you now you know. Franchise owners benefit from National Purchasing power, established systems and dozens of other advantages.
If a proven business model, an iconic brand, lifestyle friendly operating hours and impressive earnings excite you then we welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
A Maaco owner or their designated manager must devote full time efforts to the management of the Center who has successfully completed the Maaco training program.
Cost: Total investment to buy your Maaco franchise will range between $250,000 to $350,000 dollars. The franchise fee is $40,000 and you must have a minimum net worth of $300,000. Financing is available OAC.
Training : The initial training program provided to a new franchisee includes 3 weeks of intensive training in the operation and management of the Center.
