CARSTAR North America Opens More Than 50 New Locations Across North America In 2016,

First To Break 500-store Mark With Location In Cincinnati

January 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // CHARLOTTE – CARSTAR North America, the continent’s largest Multi-Shop Operator (MSO) Network of independently owned collision repair facilities, continued to expand its footprint in the U.S. and Canada with more than 50 new store openings in 2016. It also was the first MSO to pass the 500-location milestone.

“We continue to see growth as independent store owners join the CARSTAR network to build their businesses,” said Sam Freeman, VP of Development for CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts. “These owners benefit from CARSTAR’s strong North American footprint, insurance relationships, purchasing volume, standard operating procedures and training programs. And, rather than selling out their businesses to a consolidator, they can retain the ownership for future generations and drive their profitability and performance at the same time.”

CARSTAR facilities feature state-of-the-art repair equipment, expert painting, towing assistance, vehicle pick-up and delivery, and a nationwide warranty. CARSTAR I-CAR and OEM certified technicians are trained to work on all makes and models and participate in ongoing education programs on the latest vehicle technologies and materials.

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts joined Driven Brands, Inc., in 2015, and in 2016 integrated with CARSTAR Canada to become CARSTAR North America. CARSTAR North America recently announced it 500th store opening in West Chester, Ohio.
