Ziebart Is Leading The Way In The Surging Automobile Aftermarket Industry
Right now is the perfect time to be a Ziebart franchisee. The rising demand for automotive aftermarket services has never been higher and no company is better suited to meet that demand than Ziebart.
Ziebart – the global leader in automotive appearance and protection services for more than 60 years - is experiencing record-breaking sales throughout its system. That’s 400 locations and 1,200 service centers operating in 36 countries. Demand for automotive aftermarket products and services is unprecedented. For example, there’s been a 300 percent increase in interest for aftermarket services such as window tinting, rustproofing and truck bed liners at many of Ziebart’s stores across the country. Global automotive aftermarket sales are on track to increase 11.2 percent (to $ $419 billion) by the end of 2021 and predicted to increase 25 percent to $477 billion by 2024, according to the Auto Care Association.
If that weren’t enough, factor in the inventory shortage at new car dealerships, courtesy of the worldwide chip shortage, and new car price jumps have reached as high as 28 percent. It’s easy to see why people are holding onto their cars longer and why that provides a great opportunity for aftermarket service providers like Ziebart and its franchisees.
"As the average age of vehicles on the road consistently increases, now rising to 12 years, this trend presents an opportunity for aftermarket car care providers like Ziebart," said Thomas A. Wolfe, Executive Vice President, Ziebart International Corporation. "Because our services help people extend the life of vehicles and protect their second biggest investment, we are experiencing both retail sales growth, associate car dealer sales growth, and increased interest in opening a Ziebart franchise."
Ziebart's innovative offerings like its Ceramic Z-Gloss® Paint Coating, interior detailing, rust protection, window tint, Rhino Linings® Spray-on Bed Liner, and more are catering to a market with a soaring demand for services that will help protect and enhance vehicles to keep them on the road longer.
You can see why there’s no better time to become a Ziebart franchisee than right now. Their proven formula of success supports its franchisees from day 1 with a built-in team to assist in the site selection process, provide certified and ongoing training, and even guide on financing solutions. Ongoing support comes by way of marketing-specific customer acquisition and retention programs designed to help franchisees increase store traffic, grow sales, and build lasting relationships with customers.
“Because of the good marketing and support from Ziebart headquarters, we are a multi-million-dollar store and we’re increasing every year,” says Ziebart franchisee Tim Shinkle of Warsaw, IN. “Ziebart is a proven model and a turnkey operation.”
As an established automotive enthusiast brand, Ziebart has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as a Top 500 Franchisor, a Top 200 Global Franchise, #1 in its category, and one of 2021's Hottest Franchises.
