Since becoming a Maaco franchisee I realized the sky is the limit, you’re in control of your own destiny and what you put in your business is what you get out, and to me that's invaluable! My lifestyle has improved drastically and the best part is I get to see my family at the end of the day to share it with.
Before I converted to a Maaco, I ran a successful independent body shop. The last five years were extremely tough. I began a new journey in my life the day I signed my Maaco franchise agreement. Maaco made me feel welcomed, important and comfortable. Maaco wants you to succeed and is with you every step of the way. My helpless feeling is now gone and revenue is exploding.
We wanted to be partnered with a franchise with a proven system that took a straight forward and honest approach to how they did business. We found all of that with Maaco. One thing we didn't anticipate was how exciting it would be interacting on a regular basis with a great support staff. It has truly been a great experience for us. Maaco has always been there for us.
