CARSTAR, North America’s leading provider of premier collision repairs, is experiencing rapid store growth across the West Coast.

CARSTAR started off 2018 with one location in San Jose, and over the past year has grown to 22 facilities across Northern California. Which each location locally owned and operated, these collision repairers have partnered with CARSTAR to grow their business to new heights. CARSTAR’s support in operations, insurance, marketing, training and KPI management ensures its franchise partners can tap into whatever resource they may need to succeed in a rapidly changing landscape.

“I tell people, CARSTAR is like having my own security blanket because there is always someone I can call and I know they will be able to support me through whatever challenge I may have,” says Dino Di Giulio, owner, CARSTAR Body Best Collision of Sonoma and CARSTAR Body Best Collision of Suisun in California.

Majority of the new CARSTAR locations in Northern California have already earned the prestigious I-CAR Gold certification, proving their capabilities and commitment to high quality repair standards. As CARSTAR emphasizes a commitment to training and education while also upholding a standard of premier service, these locations joining the network prove that CARSTAR brings additional value to even the most experienced facilities.

“Belonging to CARSTAR provides already successful repair center owners new tools to drive profitability and expand in their markets by adding new locations,” says Brian Newberry, Director of Franchise Development, CARSTAR. “It levels the playing field for local stores because they are a part of a large network that has the benefits of key industry relationships and purchasing power, but they can retain ownership.”

With plans to accelerate growth in 2019, other regions like Sacramento, Southern California, Portland, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas are ready to leverage the benefits of CARSTAR, while still being a local owner and operator.
