Maaco Celebrates 500th North American Store Opening In Dallas

The Maaco in Mansfield, Texas, south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, co-hosted a ribbon-cutting event with the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce for community partners on Thursday, March 9. It is the 17th location in the Dallas market.

Maaco Auto Painting & Collision Repair cut the ribbon on its 500th location in North America as it kicked off its 45th anniversary of serving customers across the continent. The Maaco in Mansfield, Texas, south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, co-hosted a ribbon-cutting event with the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce for community partners on Thursday, March 9, and will have a grand-opening event on Saturday, March 11, all to celebrate the new location being named the 500th store in the Maaco network. It is the 17th location in the Dallas market.

“Congratulations to Robert and Keita Reid for helping us celebrate this accomplishment. Opening our 500th location during our 45th anniversary year is a tremendous milestone for the Maaco brand,” said Jason Ryan, president, Maaco. “This enhances our North American footprint through which we can serve customers anywhere with a well-known brand of high-quality painting and collision repair. In addition, we are proud to showcase this opening as an opportunity to support Cook Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network through our Driven Brands Charitable Foundation.”

Robert Reid was a longtime executive at The Dannon Co., where he served in various manufacturing and production leadership roles. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in mechanical engineering from Southern University and A&M College at Baton Rouge. In his spare time, he is an avid sports car enthusiast.

“It’s been a wonderful journey getting into this business with Maaco,” said Reid. “Being 45 years old, you can tell how mature this brand is. The Maaco name is recognized by everyone, you never have to explain the name. We have had customers since day one. We have a bright future, no doubt about it. The Maaco team supports you quite a bit. Their relationships with vendors are all the things you need to get the job done. They have all the right people with tremendous knowledge after 45 years of doing this business. All in all it’s been a wonderful experience. I say ‘Go Maaco.’”

“Maaco is continuing to grow throughout North America, with the opportunity to more than double the number of Maaco locations in the U.S. and Canada,” said Ryan. “There is incredible potential for entrepreneurs like the Reids to become shop owners and apply their business knowledge and passion for horsepower to running a successful operation. Not only do we offer opportunities for entrepreneurs who want to operate one or two shops, we provide market-wide territory options for investors. Our continually growing scope and scale build upon our resources as a strong, viable North American brand to make either ownership path a profitable one. And, with North American purchasing programs, enhanced standard operating procedures, dynamic national brand campaigns and the backing of Driven Brands, Maaco provides a model for investment success.”

Garland Gibbs, ambassador for the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, led the ribbon-cutting event on behalf of the community, along with Maaco Owners Robert and Keita Reid.

As part of the celebration, Maaco partnered with the Cook Children’s Hospital in Dallas, part of Driven Brands’ charitable partner Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Karol Johnson from Cook Children’s Hospital was on-hand for a 500-balloon salute, one for each Maaco location, to recognize the hundreds of children helped at Cook Children’s Hospital. She also was presented with a $5,000 donation from Maaco. All the money raised for Children’s Miracle Network stays local and goes directly to providing life-saving medical treatment for children in need.
