Paint Bull is a ground-up, low-cost franchise specializing in the automotive appearance industry and has been in operation since 1989. These folks have thought of everything! Have a look at the features of this franchise.
First of all, they’ll give you 2 weeks hands-on instruction. The first week would be at their training facility in Detroit (Motor City) MI. This is the only training center in the entire country specifically designed for the Automotive Appearance Repair Industry. The second week, you will train in the field on a real route with one of their own technicians. You’ll see the business first hand. Paint Bull operates their own fleet of trucks (the largest fleet of mobile repair vehicles in Michigan,) so they test every process in the field before it is passed to you. Next, a field sales rep flies to your location and helps you contact car dealers and other auto businesses that can feed your new beast. Support is great. They have a fully-stocked warehouse with every tool you will need to execute beautification on the entire auto world and, of course, they have an 800 number. Paint Bull has qualified as a Champion Distributor with Dupont/Standox Corporation which allows them to have direct access to all the benefits of the world’s largest paint manufacturer, and that includes their technical expertise. PB will even teach you how to set up your business tax structure for dealing with Uncle Sam. This business will have great tax advantages!
There are three different franchise packages.
- The Platinum Package is designed for the individual with sales and business experience within the Automotive Repair Industry who has the contacts but just needs the equipment and training to put a business together.
- With the Small Business Package, you can offer customers a premium paint polishing service, touch-up paint damage on chips, nicks and scratches, restore headlights to shiny new condition, and repair bulls-eyes and stars in windshields.
- The most popular program for starting a new business, the Field Training Package, has been designed for the person with little or no prior business experience in the automotive restoration industry. The Field Training Package is a Turn Key Program focused on providing a complete Mobile Paint Repair Business.
All in all, a great low-cost package with no experience required. In general, a one-truck operation grosses about $100,000 a year and carries a price tag of $5,000 – $30,000. Paint Bull may prove to be a good buy. If you’re looking for something less expensive with a potentially larger income and requiring no experience, have a look below.
