CARSTAR Franchise Information

The Performance Vehicle for Growing Your Auto Body Business.

CARSTAR is your collision repair partner that offers the support you need to grow your business and enhance your profitability.

Whether you’re an independent auto body shop owner with a single location or a multi-store operation, the changes in our industry have made growing your business more challenging. With how things are going in the industry today, you have a few options as an independent owner; sell to a large MSO, go it alone, or join a network like CARSTAR which allows you to stay independent but gain the resources needed to take your shop to the next level. At CARSTAR, we offer the right combination of resources, support and powerful partnerships that can help you sustain the business you have already built.

With CARSTAR’s operations, insurance partnerships, technology, marketing and purchasing power, CARSTAR Franchise Partners see an average revenue increase of 20.20% from first year to second year after joining CARSTAR network*.

A Driven Industry Leader in the Collision Repair Business.

As one of North America’s largest MSO networks with over 700 locations across the United States and Canada, CARSTAR offers the highest quality repairs and customer satisfaction in the auto body repair industry and is backed by a nationwide warranty.

Accelerate Your Auto Body Business with a CARSTAR Partnership.

You’ve grown your business from the ground up. Now, take your business to new heights. Our Franchise Partners love our powerful network of partnerships and resources for many reasons, but the results speak for themselves.

  • Reduce operational costs with our proprietary online business management system
  • Improved monthly sales volume via our DRP relationships
  • Boosted recurring income through national fleet partnerships
  • Significant savings on products with rebates that pay you back
  • Shop productivity amplified by our industry-leading training and management systems

We’re a Family of Family-Owned Businesses.

We know that this is your business and your business is personal. The idea of a partnership is a big one. We get it. We’re here to enrich your business, not take over. Every CARSTAR location is independently owned and operated. The auto body repair landscape is changing and more independent operators are turning to CARSTAR for the resources we can provide. Need more convincing?

Operational Support

CARSTAR’s proprietary operational platform, EDGE, helps you measure your business performance against industry Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), so you can run your business like a finely-tuned machine. To start, your CARSTAR Area Manager of Operations (AMO) will coach, counsel and consult you on key metrics.

At CARSTAR, we are one big family, and your success is something we all celebrate. To help make that possible, we offer 20 groups, known as EDGE Performance Groups (EPGs), for collaboration on business best practices and new ideas for growth and efficiencies.
