Ziebart Sales Surge Making it a Great Investment in a Growing Market
The demand for vehicle care services is soaring and no company offers a more complete list of services for those cars and trucks than Ziebart. The leading automotive protection services provider is experiencing another year of record-breaking sales and franchise growth. That’s why right now is one of the best times to invest in a Ziebart franchise.
Ziebart is a proven brand with a six-decade history of success. Its hot growth is in part due to the growing expense and shortage of new vehicles, consumers keeping their vehicles longer, and the ongoing automotive chip shortage. Consumers recognize what a significant investment their cars are and they want to keep them running and looking good. Ziebart operators have what they need.
The numbers tell the story. The automotive aftermarket grew by 14.8% in 2021, according to the Auto Care Association. Substantial growth is happening in 2022 as economic conditions stabilize, and that should be followed by steady and sustainable growth from 2023-2025. The automotive aftermarket is expected to be a $514 billion industry by 2024.
Ziebart services are in high demand with the brand experiencing double-digit year-over-year increases in retail business. Franchise development has also skyrocketed as more and more entrepreneurs evaluate the brand’s opportunity and join the franchising team. The company signed seven new franchise agreements for 2021 and all should be open by the end of 2022. These stores are a combination of new builds and lease acquisitions and include domestic agreements in Fort Myers, Florida, Highland, Michigan, and Triadelphia, West Virginia as well as international agreements in Greece, Iraq, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria. By the end of 2022, Ziebart expects to sign five new US locations.
"As the lack of inventory for both new and used vehicles continues, consumers now understand the value of investing in their current vehicles to keep them protected and looking like new,” said Thomas A. Wolfe, President & Chief Executive Officer of Ziebart International Corporation. “We expect continued growth in Ziebart's appearance and protection services including detailing, rust protection, window tint, paint protection films, and ceramic coatings."
Ziebart recognizes the system-wide growth taking place and is responding to its franchisees by regularly introducing new products and increasing support in its marketing, training, IT, and operations teams. The company makes sure franchisees have everything they need to succeed as Ziebart operators.
Ziebart has been the leader in automotive aftermarket franchising for more than 60 years. The company is now operating more than 400 locations and 1,300 service centers in 36 countries. Industry accolades also validate the brand’s success as the company 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.
Ziebart is now actively seeking qualified franchise prospects interested in joining the growing global brand and benefitting from its brand name awareness, proven track record, and earning potential.
