May 01, 2008 // Franchising.com // BumperDoc Franchise opportunities continue to lead the industry by being the first auto reconditioning center to switch to water-based pain ts. The company has a strong commitment to environmental responsibility, and has recognized the need to offer a waterborne paint system to stay in line with their values.
"We decided to make the switch to waterborne paint on Earth Day to highlight our commitment to protecting the environment," explains Triston Miller, the company's C.E.O. "Customers appreciate having the ability to choose a high-quality, environmentally responsible product when they are in need of paint repairs on their vehicle, and BumperDoc is proud to offer them that choice."
The company's first franchise location, opening May 17th, 2008 in Escondido, California, will also feature water-based paints from paint manufacturer Sherwin Williams. All new franchise locations will benefit from the company's relationship with Sherwin Williams, and will heavily market their environmentally responsible business model to customers.
BumperDoc's commitment to the environment is also evidenced by their focus on repairing damaged bumpers and metal panels instead of replacing them. The company accomplishes this by utilizing paintless dent repair technology whenever possible, and by using innovative repair methods. Reconditioning instead of replacing saves the significant resources and energy required to manufacture, package and transport replacement parts.
In addition to plastic bumper repair, paintless dent repair and minor auto body repair, the company also offers additional services for customer convenience including auto detailing, windshield repair, interior repair, clear bra application, window tinting, wheel/rim repair, and headlight restoration.
The company has experienced strong growth at their San Diego location, and they expect to replicate their success in other cities using the franchise model. BumperDoc's franchise program focuses on providing advanced marketing support to every BumperDoc owner. The company uses a variety of local marketing strategies along with comprehensive Internet marketing support to educate customers and bring them in the door. The switch to water-based paints is expected to enhance their marketing efforts.
