Maaco Acquires California's 1-day Paint and Body Centers

Charlotte-based Maaco has acquired 1-Day Paint & Body Centers of Torrance, Calif., for an undisclosed sum.

1-Day Paint & Body Centers is a 47-year-old company that operates 24 stores in California, Nevada and New Mexico. Most will be converted to Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting Centers during the next three to six months.

Maaco says the acquisition will triple its presence in Southern California, a top growth market for the company.

Sixteen 1-Day stores in Southern California are being franchised to existing Maaco owners Matt and Caroline Peach, making them the largest franchisee in the Maaco system. The remaining locations will be franchised to other owners.

Sherwin-Williams will be the supplier of choice for the 1-Day locations.

“We couldn’t be more excited about our new centers and the opportunity for growth in the region,” says Jose Costa, Maaco president.

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting serves roughly 500,000 drivers annually. It has 450 franchises and is part of Driven Brands, also based in Charlotte. Driven Brands is also the parent of Meineke Car Care Centers, Econo Lube & Tune, AutoQual, Aero-Colours and Drive N Style.
