It will expand the CARSTAR network to nearly 15 locations in the Philadelphia region.

The partnership will allow Philadelphia’s largest automotive dealership group to tap into the resources that CARSTAR has to offer. Fred Beans can now focus on future growth with a more efficient operations and business model.

“We are excited to be part of the strongest franchised collision network in our industry,” said Beans. “We have seen how CARSTAR is outpacing the industry in same-store sales growth. We also know that stronger relationships with insurance partners and the ability to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry will help to build a better collision repair experience for our customers.”

CARSTAR CEO David Byers added, “We are seeing a growing trend of car dealerships aligning their body shops with MSOs like CARSTAR. Many multi-location dealerships are consolidating their vehicle repair centers for efficiency. We can help them maintain training, OEM certifications and the high levels of customer service expected in today’s collision industry. And we can provide the resources and best practices to help them deliver best-in-class KPIs.”

The Fred Beans Family of Dealerships has a long and successful history in the greater Philadelphia market. Beans entered the dealership business in 1972, and by 1975 had opened his first location. All three of Fred Beans’ daughters hold important positions within the company, and, according to CARSTAR, customers and employees alike agree that the entire organization feels like one big happy family.
