CARSTAR Adds 23 New Store Additions Across North America


 The Davidson Family has been involved in local business and their local communities for over 50 years. In 1962, Davidson Chevrolet of Rome opened its doors and laid the foundation for what is now one of the leading automotive sales and service groups in Central and Northern New York. The family of dealerships now includes five franchise stores, three state-of-the-art collision centers and ten Precision Car Washes.


Organic Growth with Top CARSTAR Franchise Partners: Several CARSTAR franchise partners are opening new locations in New York, Indiana and California, among others. Longtime CARSTAR owner Scott Hotalen is adding his fourth location—CARSTAR Huckle’s Collision in Waverly, NY,—to his portfolio with CARSTAR Stanton in Binghamton, NY, CARSTAR Hillcrest in Vestal, NY, and CARSTAR Oswego in Oswego, NY.


Mike Libecap, owner of CARSTAR of Oxford in Oxford, OH, has opened a new location in Connersville, IN,—CARSTAR Gulley’s Body Shop. Jeff Yokam, who own CARSTAR Yokum in Willits, CA, is opening CARSTAR Yokum—Ukiah’s in Ukiah, CA, as his second location.


“We joined CARSTAR in January and already wanted to expand to a second location,” said Jeff Yokum of CARSTAR Yokum. “They are helping us grow our business, expand our insurance work and increase our visibility with the CARSTAR brand.”


Prominent MSOs and Independent Owners Join the CARSTAR Family: For John Cothran, who has had two independent locations in Springfield, MO, since 2007, joining CARSTAR offered new resources and benefits to build his business. Opening as CARSTAR Tanner’s Paint and Body—Springfield and CARSTAR Tanner’s Paint and Body—Willard this month, Cothran’s locations will offer the highest-quality collision repair and classic car restoration.


“It’s an exciting time for CARSTAR and our industry,” said David Foster, vice president of development for CARSTAR. “We believe in the independent collision repair facility model. We know that independent owners can thrive in this ever-changing space of collision repair when they are a part of a strong national brand and have exclusive access to unmatched support, which is what the CARSTAR family provides. In 2018, CARSTAR built strong momentum, and in 2019 it’s now time to accelerate our growth.”
