CARSTAR Eyes Expansion in Cincinnati
March 22, 2017―CARSTAR intends to double its number of locations in the Cincinnati, Ohio area from five to 10 in the near future, as noted in a recent Cincinnati Business Courier article.
“Cincinnati is an ideal market from a consumer standpoint with heavy traffic and winter weather,’’ Sam Freeman, CARSTAR’s vice president of franchise development, told the Cincinnati Business Courier. “From a business standpoint, consolidation among collision repair providers in the market has left Cincinnati drivers with fewer options for quality auto repair.”
Shops are required to pay a $14,955 fee to become a CARSTAR affiliate. CARSTAR now has nearly 500 locations in 34 states and 10 Canadian provinces.
