Maaco, Pep Boys Roll Out Satellite Concept
Last week, the first two of many planned Maaco satellite shops opened inside existing Pep Boys locations in Marietta and Union City, Ga. The launch of these two satellite shops will trigger a nationwide rollout with three locations planned for the Los Angeles area in the coming weeks. The new shops will launch with new digital merchandising boards.
These shops offer full-service automotive services, including auto painting, collision repair, insurance claims, fleet and industrial services, paintless dent repair, scratch repair, detailing, trim installation and decaling—with the support of local Maaco production.
“The partnership with Maaco and Pep Boys is a natural fit and we look forward to maximizing this relationship,” said Jose Costa, group president of the paint and collision division for Driven Brands. “Millions of people visit Pep Boys annually; these satellite locations will add to the continued growth of Maaco and allow us reach a much broader customer base.”
“This unique opportunity could pave the way for a stronger Maaco system,” said Jason Ryan, president of Maaco. “The success of this program depends heavily on both companies working together to deliver a positive overall experience to our shared customers, and I’m confident that together we’ll continue to grow.”
