Franchise Opportunities 

Whether opening a brand new center or converting from an independent body shop, the majority of our owners come into the MAACO system as Single-Center Operators. However, many of our MAACO owners have taken the next step towards expanding in their market by opening a second shop. It's not uncommon for a Multi-Center Operator to continue expanding from two shops to three and beyond. As you investigate our brand, you'll find that our certified franchise centers average annual sales volume of over $1.2 million and when franchisees post sales in excess of $1 million a year, they're taking home over $216,000 in annual profits* Please see item 19 for further earning details

On 6/1/2014, we officially launched the "Maaco Store" hub-and-spoke program. This initiative allows existing franchisees to open store fronts in high traffic retail locations, like strip malls, with the purpose of driving more cars to their production centers located 5 to 10 miles away.

The MAACO Advantage
MAACO shops average $388,210* more than the average independent body shop
Unmatched purchasing power, reducing your product cost drastically

"We wanted to be partnered with a franchise with a proven system that took a straight forward and honest approach to how they did business. We found all of that with Maaco. One thing we didn't anticipate was how exciting it would be interacting on a regular basis with a great support staff. It has truly been a great experience for us. Maaco has always been there for us." Bill & Marilyn Cruce, Tucson, AZ
