Following an aggressive growth schedule, CARCARE Collision Centers of Plainfield, Ill., has announced plans to open two more stores this year for a total of four new stores opened in 2011. One of the stores yet to open in 2011 will have a 100,000-square-foot facility. Future expansion plans include opening four to five stores in each of the next two years.
The firm acquired four stores in central Illinois in 2006 and took over additional stores in northern Illinois in 2008 and 2010.
Launched in 1996 by the merger of three Joliet, Ill.-area collision repair facilities, owners Jim Missig and Bill Aeschliman have personally overseen the firm’s growth into one of the most respected and well-known collision repair companies in the Midwest.
"CARCARE has continued to grow because of its hallmark standard of combining the highest quality in repairs with unparalleled customer service," said Aeschliman.
As Missig and Aeschliman were developing the CARCARE concept, they knew it would have to be more than just a business partnership. The success of each individual shop had to be built on a reputation of honesty and integrity along with a commitment to 100-percent customer satisfaction.
"Customers can be assured that when they see the CARCARE Collision Center name, they’ll receive a level of service second to none," said Aeschliman.
