Our franchises dominate the auto repair and painting industry with approximately 47% U.S. market share.  


The size of the total collision repair market has grown from $28.8 billion in 2000 to $41.5 billion in 2007.

There are more than 230.5 million vehicles on U.S. roads.  MAACO has serviced more than 16 million customers = 500,000 customers per year.

The average vehicle age has grown from 8.3 years old in 1998 to 9.4 years old in 2008.  Now, more than ever, people are holding on to their cars longer.  

Why Choose MAACO?


MAACO is ranked #1 in its category by Entrepreneur Magazine in its Franchise 500; according to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).


Preliminary data indicates a decrease in the total number of collision repair shops in 2007, representing the fifth decrease in the past six years.  

MAACO grew in store count last year. In 2006, 64% of independent and dealer collision repair shops had sales less than $750,000.  MAACO is the leader in the $42.4 billion automotive paint and collision industry. With virtually no nationally branded competition and nearly 40 years in franchising, MAACO dominates the automotive cosmetic paint market share at more than 45 percent. Furthermore MAACO's advancement in the cosmetic collision sector (“cosmolision”) provides dealers with fantastic opportunity for continued growth.
