Values & History
For sixteen years since we got started, we have been celebrated for our hard-working and capable personnel, and our unique, one-of-a-kind painting system. Our reputation is well-known and that's important for a potential franchisee. When you start a ChipsAway business, you skip years of work trying to build a name for yourself. People know the brand, and that will help you acquire customers.
But it is important to know that our formula and the equipment we use during our paint repair process are safe and meets or surpasses health inspection regulations. That is one of our core values. We don't fix a vehicle's chipped paint at the expense of the human beings who drive it, or the workers who do the fixing.
Where are the customers at? Just walk through any parking lot or garage and see how many are without blemish. You may not have looked closely enough before, but when you do you'll realize that most cars get scratched up. Unlike a wall at home, you can't just go to the paint store and fix it yourself. You need a professional to do it.
ChipsAway always gets the job done. We match that paint and fix any car perfectly. That literally makes every person who owns at least one vehicle a potential customer. Just walk down the street of your own house and look at the cars parked on the street.
And the best part is, our brand is internationally famous and all of our technicians, including you if you decide to buy a ChipsAway franchise, are highly trained by actual active on-the-job professionals who fix cars every day. The reputation is there for a reason. We're genuinely good at what we do in a marketplace that, frankly, is unlimited.
Training & Support
We have both classroom and hands-on training available. We want to make sure that by the time you are ready to generate clients on your own that you feel 100 percent comfortable with our original technical process. We'll ensure you know how to match colors, use our equipment, and understand every nuance of the operation.
Your tools of trade will not be new out of the package, which sometimes results in faulty lemons. Nothing could hurt your business initially worse than that. So, we test all new equipment for a few months before we release it to our franchisees. You'll have the confidence on day one that everything will work. We consider that a big reason why our new team members are able to find instant success.
We then will continue to provide support at all times. You can call and get advice on any aspect of the business from actual hands-on technicians. We'll walk you through anything unique or difficult. It doesn't matter if you are brand new or after you become a veteran. You are one of us, and we will always be there to get you through any situation that comes up. After 16 years, we've pretty much seen it all.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
We are looking for people who will take our training course and perform at an exemplary level. That's a big key for us. But our trainers are excellent, and we find that people from all walks of life can handle the ChipsAway process. You don't need prior experience or need to be a licensed technician in a different automotive or engineering field. Anyone can learn how to do this.
We do appreciate go-getters who will look to drive business with marketing and build their own stellar reputation from word-of-mouth customers after doing wonderful work. If you have other business-related skills and an outgoing personality, those traits will certainly help you as you build your own franchise.
Purchasing a ChipsAway Franchise
One of the advantages to ChipsAway is that it isn't a brick-and-mortar business. With many franchises you will have to start with buying real estate. But most ChipsAway franchisees work out of a van. Being mobile has its advantages.
Another nice thing about ChipsAway that differentiates it from a lot of other franchise opportunities out there is that you don't have to quit your primary job to do it. This can be a part-time income generator that rounds out your overall income, and you can build your business up at a pace you see fit.
On the other hand, many ChipsAway professionals are looking to make a full-time income right off the bat. Thanks to our prestigious name and unlimited clientele potential, you can do just that. There will be few opportunities you review that has this much versatility and where you get everything — the training, the equipment, inventory and a growth plan consultation with seasoned marketing professionals, all in one neat, tidy package.
