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.

Mobile Franchise Business Model in an In-Demand Industry

Mobile Franchise Business Model in an In-Demand Industry

Cars are not going anywhere.  Automotive dealership franchises are quite costly (but they can make money).  How do automotive dealerships make good money?  By offering their customer competitive rates.  There is not a whole lot of “wiggle room” on a new car: but used cars (and used car dealerships) can be highly profitable.  Why?  There’s a chance to expand the profit margin.  What do dealerships need in order to increase their profit margins?  A quality used car with little investment. Used car prices have been on the rise, a great deal due to the recession.  There has been a decrease in the number of new cars made (especially in 2009-2011).  According to the National Automotive Dealers Association (2012), the decline in luxury cars produced in this period has lead to a rise in their used value.  Luxury used car prices have increased by as much as 9% over the past year.  There is anticipation that the values for used car will decline, but NADA analyst reports pricing will: “remain at historically high levels through the end of the year”. How does Ultragloss fit into this picture?  Ultragloss is a mobile franchise that services automotive dealerships.  We offer them a low-cost service that improves the appearance of the vehicles on their lot which raises the value (and the price) of the vehicle.  It’s really quite simple and it doesn’t matter where used car values are.  Either way, we save our clients money by performing repairs that help them increase their profit margins. Even though automotive dealerships have service departments, these departments are costly overhead for the dealers and their workers are mostly mechanics or they have specialty performing large-scale jobs.  Ultragloss specializes in automotive appearance: those scratches, scrapes, scuffs, road rash, and key marks that typically hinder the sale of a vehicle (or lower its overall value). Bottom line: if you are looking for an affordable mobile franchise that’s virtually recession proof, Ultragloss is right for you. Ultragloss has completely analyze the business model to sculpt it into something even more efficient to meet increased demand for our services from used automotive dealerships.  We train our franchisees how to do every aspect of the business and we offer comprehensive one-on-one support.  Our look sets us apart from our competition.  And last, but not least: our customer service is impecable. Get started: land your automotive franchise today!...
