how well can you do?

If you are Maaco you get a 8% to 15% discount on parts, just like any independent shop depending on volume. The discount is meant to be your profit / contribute to your overhead. Maaco takes 8%-9% on parts for franchise fees, including parts. How do you overcome that? If you are a high enough volume shop you can negotiate a better discount volume on paint and materials than what Maaco offers. So you pay them a premium on parts and materials. Where is the math on your profitability and "very successful"? What is your definition of success? Not going bankrupt like the other suckers you went to training with?
