Values & History
The company was founded in 1972 by Anthony Martino and Daniel Rhode and its rapid success led to equally rapid expansion. Today the company boasts more than 500 franchises in operation around the country and has been cited numerous times by Entrepreneur magazine as America's #1 auto body shop in annual surveys. The MAACO Collision Repair & Auto Painting home office is located in Charlotte, NC.
MAACO dominates the $42 billion automotive cosmetic market with a share well over 45%, and with virtually no national competitor, represents a unique opportunity for prospective investors. Our ongoing innovation in the cosmetic collision sector means even more opportunity for continued growth in an industry that's projected to see increased revenue as high as 2.0% annually in the years to come.
Training & Support
Our extensive training program kicks off with 3 weeks of management instruction at MAACO headquarters, followed by an additional 3+ weeks of on-the-job training for owners and their selected team of employees. Once this has been completed, the next phase is 6-12 months of development oversight where guidance over all aspects of operation is provided to ensure the successful operation of your franchise. Further support is provided through annual meetings, advertising, purchasing, a company-wide intranet, and MAACO's own online university.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
No automotive experience is required for this opportunity, thanks to the retail-based business model. A background in business management and operations is ideal, but the best candidates will be self-starters who are motivated toward the growth of their business and exceeding their personal and professional goals while maintaining flexibility for the ideal balance between work and family life.
