Based on 2020 performance, CARSTAR ranked 25th on the list and was the only automotive company included.
Today, CARSTAR has more than 700 locations in 35 states and 10 Canadian provinces. It navigated the COVID-19 pandemic as an “essential business” and was able to continue its strong performance, positive sales growth and consistent unit growth during the challenging year.
CARSTAR remains the top collision repair company for the overall automotive category, and leads the industry in North America with excellent customer service and the highest-quality auto body repairs.
The ranking on the Franchise Times “Fast and Serious” list helps demonstrate how CARSTAR is an ideal partner for collision repair facility owners interested in strategic resources, operations management, insurance relationships and procurement support.
“It’s an honor to be recognized again for our consistent performance and strategic operations, particularly through this unique year,” said Dean Fisher, president of the collision group for Driven Brands, which includes CARSTAR. “We, collectively with our franchise partners, have worked very hard to reshape our business, focus on our core competencies and continue to deliver profitable growth across our system. We look forward to continuing this trend in 2021.”
