Maaco has announced a partnership with Pep Boys to launch an automotive retail concept across the United States. The first two Maaco satellite shops will open inside existing Pep Boys locations at 1531 Cobb Parkway S., Marietta, GA 30060, and 5000 Highway 138, Union City, GA 30291.

The initial launch of two Atlanta-area satellite shops will trigger a nationwide rollout with three locations planned for the Los Angeles area in the coming weeks. These new shops will launch with new digital merchandising boards that will save space and offer a unique customer experience.

These shops offer full-service automotive appearance services, including: auto painting, collision repair, insurance claims, fleet and industrial services, paintless dent repair, scratch repair, detailing, trim installation and decaling ­— with the support of local Maaco production shops.

“The partnership with Maaco and Pep Boys is a natural fit and we look forward to maximizing this relationship,” said Jose Costa, group president of the Paint and Collision Division for Driven Brands. “Millions of people visit Pep Boys annually; these satellite locations will add to the continued growth of Maaco and allow us reach a much broader customer base.”

This partnership allows Pep Boys to enhance their position as a one-stop shop for automotive needs, including under-the-hood repairs, tires, retail supplies and now auto body paint and collision repair.

“Easy access to Maaco’s services will be a great addition for our customers,” said Joe Cirelli, senior vice president of Real Estate and Construction for Pep Boys. “Maaco has a reputation for quality work, and Pep Boys customers now have a truly full-service automotive maintenance shop for all of their needs.”

As Maaco continues to expand with the goal of 1,000 locations by 2020, the company says finding new ways to conveniently service customers will be key.

“This unique opportunity could pave the way for a stronger Maaco system,” said Jason Ryan, president of Maaco. “The success of this program depends heavily on both companies working together to deliver a positive overall experience to our shared customers, and I’m confident that together we’ll continue to grow.”
