Carsmetics’ Newest Franchisee is Taking His Franchise to New Territory

Dan Daniel, Carsmetics’ newest franchisee, is opening the first Carsmetics franchise in Virginia.

Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) May 23, 2013 - Carsmetics, a DuPont Quality of Assurance repair facility that specializes in repairing vehicles with “drivable damage,” has a new franchisee. Carsmetics’ corporate headquarters are in Tampa, Florida, but Dan Daniel, Carsmetics’ newest franchisee, is taking Carsmetics to a new market in Richmond, Virginia. “Carsmetics is thrilled to be moving into the Richmond market, and we know Dan is the right person to bring us there. Under Dan’s leadership, this franchise is going to thrive,” said Tony Lockhart, CEO/President of Carsmetics. Right now, Dan is searching the Richmond area for the perfect location; if he finds it soon, he hopes to open his franchise later this year.

Dan has been in business practically all his life as an owner. From public accounting to Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) to the technology business—he’s got business in his blood. Now, he’s throwing his hat into the franchise ring with Carsmetics. Carsmetics specializes in drivable accident repairs; you drive it in, they fix it. In their own words, think about them as an “outpatient clinic” for your car. It’s repaired by skilled specialists and usually taken home the same day. Dan was attracted to Carsmetics because he sees it as a practical business, not a fad; once he met the team in Tampa, he felt a synergy and knew he had found a fit.

Looking ahead, Dan sees a future beyond this first franchise. “We hope that Richmond will support 2 to 3 locations; and eventually, we’d like to move into Charlottesville and Fredericksburg. We envision 3 to 5 locations in the next 3 to 5 years,” said Dan. According to Dan, he’s looking forward to creating something unique with his Carsmetics franchise, building a team, and becoming the best in this business. Dan had this to add, “When a drivable accident occurs, I hope my franchise can turn a dreadful situation into a pleasant experience and deliver flawless, guaranteed-for-life repaired cars at fair to WOW pricing.”

In the meantime, Dan is excited to meet other Carsmetics franchisees, to see their locations and learn more about what’s to come. “We’re really excited about bringing this franchise to Richmond, and we’re looking forward to finding a location and getting started,” said Dan.

The Carsmetics Experience

Upon arrival, guests are greeted while pulling their vehicle into the convenient drive-in inspection area. A professional customer-service specialist provides guests with a complimentary fixed-price quote within 10 minutes, all while relaxing in a clean, comfortable seating area, complete with beverages and Wi-Fi access. DuPont automotive paint products are used for perfect color matching, and all repairs are backed by a lifetime warranty for as long as the customer owns the vehicle. Carsmetics repairs are often right at or just below the cost of the guest’s insurance deductible. Prior to Carsmetics opening, there were not many high-quality, quick-turnaround shop options for consumers with drivable damage.
