First Day Out & Franchisee Performs First Solo Repair for Dealership

First Day Out & Franchisee Performs First Solo Repair for Dealership

(Northfield, Ohio) Javier Castillo completed The Ultragloss Boot Camp last Friday. After finalizing some of his new business arrangements he went out to solicit some dealerships. His first day on the road he performed his first solo repair: “Javier is ace,” said Ultragloss founder Steve Marble, “the hardest part of this job is getting out and soliciting the dealerships to get the work and he’s doing a great job getting in there and talking to the right people.” Javier did not have any prior automotive paint or sales experience.  With the support of Ultragloss and the confidence gained during his training, he knows how to get in there and perform a quality repair.  Ultragloss style repairs add value to the dealership’s inventory and can typically be completed faster than the dealer’s existing body shop– and at a fraction of the cost. Like a lot of Ultragloss franchisees and franchise prospects, Javier was worried about dealerships with existing body shops.  Sometimes dealerships think that they make the most money by using their body shops for all their repair needs.  This is not the case.  Body shops typically specialize in large-scale jobs: insurance jobs, mechanical work, etc.  Ultragloss specializes in small-scale jobs that focus specifically on the appearance. Ultragloss Automotive Appearance Specialists are trained to inspect the whole vehicle for cosmetic damages.  They perform the work same-day so that vehicle is ready to go back out on the lot and sell. In this way our dealerships let their body shops focus on their specialty (where they make the most money) and they use Ultragloss to save money on repairs while increasing profits on their used inventory. Ultragloss specialists help dealers managed their used inventory.  In this way, the Ultragloss business model is easily implemented into dealerships and that makes the sales process easier for the techs.  Still, the sales is typically the most difficult part of the job. Despite new business jitters, Javier has learned a lot through the Ultragloss training program to help him solicit accounts and perform quality repairs.  He also has the added benefit of soliciting accounts with founder, Steve Marble.  Steve has over 20-years experience working with dealers.  All of our franchisees go out with Steve for 3-5 days at no additional cost.  The first few days Javier wanted to test things out for himself and he has been excelling in the field (did you get a good look at the repair above?). If you’re like Javier and ready to go into business for yourself, consider an Ultragloss franchise.  As a newer franchisor, Ultragloss’s success greatly depends on the success of their franchisees.  They designed their training program to reflect the successful brand and image they have built in Northeast Ohio and intend to carry across the nation.  Want to learn more about this franchise opportunity and all the support features?  Request more information here or call...

Steve’s Blog: Gearing Up for Growth

Steve’s Blog: Gearing Up for Growth

Last year was exciting. We’ve been steadily growing the past few years. Ultragloss has added some new people to our retail shops and in our corporate office. We’ve also added a few franchises to our list in this area and another in Dayton. I’ve been approached a number of times from locals about our franchise opportunity: what it is and why I did it. First off, franchising was way different than I imagined it would be. It was a test of patience, a legal nightmare (I don’t think I’ve ever read so much legal jargon in my life), and extremely exciting all at the same time. I wanted to grow this brand, but I wasn’t sure how. In 2010, I started the franchising process and we launched Ultragloss America as a franchise opportunity in May of 2011.  Read More… And check out Javier’s repair on Day 8 of training!...

Great Turn-Out at the Cincinnati Franchise Show

Posted by on Feb 11, 2013 in franchise, Franchise Show, Franchisees | Comments Off on Great Turn-Out at the Cincinnati Franchise Show

Great Turn-Out at the Cincinnati Franchise Show

We had a great turn-out at the Cincinnati Franchise Show and had the opportunity to talk to a lot of different people! This past weekend, Ultragloss showcased at the Cincinnati Franchise and Business Opportunities Show.  Over 900 people attended the show on Saturday alone.  Ultragloss representatives spoke with several people who were interested in going into business for themselves.  Are you one of those people?  Because if you’re looking to go into business in Cincinnati, Ohio— The City has some really great incentives for start-ups. The great thing about Cincinnati, Ohio is that the mayor, Mark Mallory, is really hands-on when it comes to economic development.  He met with several vendors (including Ultragloss) and got a feel for the type of business the vendors were promoting.  After speaking with him at the show, we learned how dedicated he was to attracting small businesses because they are the backbone of the US Economy.  Check out the City’s business incentives here. Hopefully more cities will follow The City of Cincinnati’s lead by granting small business start-ups more incentives to do business.  Small businesses help grow the local economy because they keep more money in the local economy.  Judging by the large turn-out to the Cincinnati Franchise and Business Opportunities Expo, there are lot of people looking to go into business for themselves in Cincinnati.  The confusing part for some was the difference between a franchise and a business opportunity. A franchise opportunity is often more expensive to get into and one is required to pay a royalty fee.  A business opportunity is traditionally less-expensive.  One of the major differences comes in the form of on-going support.  This is something franchisors offer that most business opportunities do not.  Additionally, being a part of a franchise, is being part of a branded, proven system.  Learn about the differences between a franchise and business opportunity here. And if you did stop by and check out our booth at show and are interested in learning even more about our opportunity, request more information here.

New UG Paint Franchise Launching Soon

New UG Paint Franchise Launching Soon

New Automotive Paint Franchise Launching in the Cleveland Area This March Javier Castillo joined the Ultragloss Team Thursday January 17, 2013 and is expected to enter training sometime next month.  He will launch his new Ultragloss Automotive Paint Franchise this March in the Cleveland area. Javier’s friend, Tony Lopane is also an Ultragloss franchisee.  What do these two have common?  They both used to work for Ford Motor Company.  Ford is closing down their company here in Ohio and have offered workers two options: relocation or a buyout. “At Ford I was getting paid by the hour no matter how much I did, I was paid my wage.  I’m a motivated individual and now I can use that motivation in my own business,” Javier continues, “and I have the freedom to do more and control my schedule.  And I have the support to do this.  My friend does this and I’m confident that I have the right people behind me.” When we asked Javier what interested him in the Ultragloss Automotive Paint Franchise he said, “the whole aspect of the business.  I’ve always liked cars and I’ve always tried to keep my vehicles in a nice pristine shape.  So to make money by making them [vehicles] look good is a win-win.  Also, not to be cliché, but you guys: the friendly staff.” Javier will be working outdoors and more in control of his hours.  Overall he is very excited about launching his own automotive paint franchise and is excited about this venture. “Javier is highly motivated.  When I met him for the first time, I could tell he was cut out for this.  He has an interest in automobiles, he’s sharp, and he’s got great people skills.  I’m really excited to have him on our team,” Ultragloss founder, Steve Marble said, “and he has some great recommendations from one of our own, so we’re really comfortable moving forward.” Ultragloss is excited about Javier joining the team this year and are looking forward to his grand opening. For those interested in an automotive paint franchise, see if Ultragloss is right for you: Request More...

Tricks to Keeping Your Interior Clean this Winter

Tricks to Keeping Your Interior Clean this Winter

Steve’s Blog: Tricks to a Clean Interior Ultragloss Founder, Steve Marble, recently posted a new blog about keeping the interior of your vehicle clean during the harsh winter months.  During the winter, the interior of your vehicle takes a beating from the sleet, snow, salt, and general grime.  In order to keep your interior clean, Steve writes: While I’m grateful that we enjoyed a white holiday season, I’m ready for the snow to be gone. The sleet, snow, and salt are tracked into our homes and vehicles leaving messy slop across floors, embedded into carpets, and wherever else they work their way into. My wife, Annette, and I are always telling our kids to wipe their feet. This is more challenging when entering our vehicles. I taught my kids a trick when they get into my truck. They climb in and spin their legs out of the car, click their feet together a couple of times to knock most of the snow from their boots. It’s not a perfect plan, but it helps reduce the amount of gunk getting into my ride. For the best results, combating the wear and tear of salt/snow/sleet: rubber mats come in handy. Aftermarket rubber mats such as Weather Tech® and Husky Liners® have been the most reliable for me. These types of rubber liners are nice because once they fill up with water, you can dump it out when it’s conventient for you—Like when you’re pumping your gas or getting out of you car after a long day’s work.  Continue Reading…...
