March 31, 2017 // Franchising.com // From Lake Michigan to Lake Macatawa, detailing, films, and protection products are in high demand in Michigan.
Troy, Michigan, March 30, 2017 - Ziebart International Corporation, the global leader in automotive detailing, films and protection services, announces another franchise sale in Michigan.
It all started last year with a franchise opening in Sterling Heights. But the growth didn’t stop there. Todd and Shanna Beltman have been welcomed to the Ziebart family as the 12th franchisee in Michigan and the 16th store location, after signing their license agreement to open a store in Holland, MI.
“We would like to welcome the Beltmans to our growing family, the addition of another store in western Michigan is very exciting for all of us,” said Thomas E. Wolfe, President/CEO of Ziebart International Corporation. “We are thrilled to offer our superior products and services to the people of Holland and its surrounding cities.”
According to an IHS Automotive survey, the automotive industry is growing with the average age of a car in the U.S. at 11.5 years – a record high. Consumer interest in keeping their vehicle looking brand new and ensuring the vehicle’s highest resale value are two of the many reasons Ziebart sales continue to grow. The level of U.S. franchise interest also continues to grow, with Ziebart stores planning to open in Alabama and Florida early in 2017. "Nobody does vehicle detailing, films, and protection better than Ziebart,” said Wolfe. “Ziebart is one of the oldest franchised brands in the world. While many small businesses fail within three years, the average Ziebart store owner has been leading his local market for over 20 years.”

The company was founded on Rust Protection in 1959 and operates approximately 400 licensed locations with 950 service centers in 33 countries.
