Four Shops Become CARSTAR Franchises

Recently, four independent collision centers from around the U.S. became CARSTAR Collision Centers. CARSTAR makes up North America’s largest group of collision repair centers with some 400 stores in the United States and Canada.

The four newest CARSTAR franchisees include:

• San Antonio Kelly CARSTAR Collision in San Antonio, Texas
• ACS CARSTAR in Naples, Fla.
• CARSTAR Davis Avenue in Laurel, Md.
• Premier CARSTAR Collision Center in Henderson, Nev.
 
As a part of CARSTAR, these new franchisees will offer an array of services and products for collision repair, including the latest in repair technology, rental vehicles, national warranties on repairs and turnkey service for their customers, CARSTAR says.
 
In the two decades since it was founded, CARSTAR has performed more than 2.5 million repairs and has average customer satisfaction ratings of 97 percent or better. It also provides advanced training and certification for its technicians and state-of-the-art shop technology, the company says.
 
"We are extremely pleased to welcome these new members to the CARSTAR family," said Dan Bailey, chief operating officer of CARSTAR. "They all run great businesses and have strong histories of quality customer service. We’re looking forward to building their business together, helping local car owners get back on the road with fast, reliable collision repairs, and giving back to the community at the same time."
