Greensboro, NC, Maaco Owner Recognized Nationally for Outstanding Performance


Greensboro, NC, business owner Phil Collins was recognized by Maaco as the Multi-Shop Owner (MSO) of the Year across the whole North American network.

This recognition celebrates the top multi-shop owner in the Maaco network, who is excelling in all areas of the business---sales, quality, operational excellence and leadership.

Collins, owner of 19 Maaco locations across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, has been a part of the Maaco family for almost three decades. Throughout this period of time, he has continued to grow, maintaining consistency in his production quality and customer satisfaction year after year.

“I am honored to receive this award on behalf of my team,” said Collins. “When people ask me the key to my success, I tell them this---hire good people that have integrity, trust them to do their best, and do your best to retain them. We have created a family atmosphere here, and that attracts people from other businesses who want to be a part of this positive culture.”

Collins became a franchise owner in 1993 and was integral in establishing the Maaco presence in the Carolinas. He has built a strong reputation for the brand with almost 20 locations in the region. His growth is a testament to the benefit of staying rooted in Maaco’s founding values.

“I believe in trusting your people. We also trust the Maaco model,” added Collins. “As we grew from one store to 19, we have never varied from it. We believe in the model that (Maaco founder) Tony Martino began 50 years ago.”

Maaco, North America’s body shop, and its network of franchise owners recently gathered for the four-day 2022 Maaco Convention in Carlsbad, CA, to celebrate Maaco’s 50th anniversary and the outstanding achievements of its owners.

“Phil is a great example of the success that is possible as a Maaco owner and serves as an inspiration to his peers,” said Chris Dawson, paint and collision president for Driven Brands.
