Significant East Coast Expansion

CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned and operated collision repair facilities, continues to experience massive growth across the East Coast.

With over 20 new CARSTAR facilities opening on the East Coast in 2019, CARSTAR remains focused on welcoming other independent owners who uphold CARSTAR’s level of repair excellence.

“We are seeing increased levels of interest across the East Coast now, because owners are finding it more and more difficult to compete against the large MSOs,” says Matt Foxx, Senior Director, Franchise Development, CARSTAR. “CARSTAR gives shop owners the opportunity to stay independently owned and operated but provides them with the resources to sustain the business they have built and continue to thrive in this ever changing industry.”

CARSTAR provides a hybrid model for collision repairers, as it is local ownership but with national perspective and advantages. CARSTAR is comprised of independent single stores, family-owned businesses, dealership owners, large regional MSOs and everything in between.

“By providing great resources to our network and coaching them on best practices to stay competitive, the benefits of CARSTAR are like no other organization out there,” continues Foxx. “I think this is why we have seen so much interest and growth on the East Coast. Because of this, we have decided to exhibit at the Northeast trade show for the second year in a row.  The Northeast is primed for growth and we are looking forward to meeting with shop owners to see if they qualify in becoming a part of the CARSTAR family.”

Northeast is an event tailored specifically to fit the needs of today’s professionals representing all walks of the automotive repair industry. CARSTAR will be exhibiting at booth #126.
