What our franchisees are saying

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.

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.
