Maaco Steers Expansion Plans Towards Louisville

With the average car on the road reaching a record high age of 11.5 years, Maaco has announced plans to grow its brand presence to Louisville by bringing five new shops to the market over the next two years.

To jumpstart the Louisville development, Maaco executives are seeking single and multi-unit franchise partners, requiring no prior automotive experience.

The franchise offers new owners comprehensive training programs and continued operating and marketing support, as well as supplying $100 million in fleet accounts for its franchise system. According to the company, the growth of Maaco shops in Louisville will bring seven or more jobs per location and the opportunity for neighboring business owners to benefit from a franchise that provides great services at a low price with a quick turnaround.

With more than 470 nationwide locations and 43 years of paint and collision experience, Maaco is responding to the growing consumer demand in Louisville for experienced, reliable auto body paint and repair shops. Louisville was chosen for its increasing population and number of registered vehicles, and this targeted expansion is part of Maaco’s overall national projections to double the size of the company over the next three years.

“With Louisville’s lack of trusted paint & collision shops compared to the rising number of vehicles across the U.S., we have found substantial room for growth potential and a heavy demand for our services,” said Rob Cambruzzi, vice president of Maaco Franchise Development. “Maaco offers a great lifestyle for franchise owners, boasts one of the best item 19s in the industry and isn’t limited to those with automotive experience. We’re looking for entrepreneurs with a wide variety of backgrounds.”

The franchise plans on adding 60 new franchisees over the next year to achieve an overarching goal of becoming a $1 billion brand.
