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...

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!...
