side note

Just a side note. They do not have unit growth in the past three years as reported. The additional units are what Maaco calls "satellite stores". Since so many of their shops do not draw enough business to make a Maaco shop viable, they have 30+/- stand alone sales offices that are not shops but are sales kiosks. An ancillary sales office in a strip mall etc. trying to funnel customers to a shop. These satellites are included in the statistics as additional locations. Most of these additional sales offices do not generate enough additional business to the failing shop they are meant to support, and do not justify the additional rent, staff cost, etc.. Just an additional expense to the Maaco franchisee, additional revenue to Maaco Corp. and a way to pad their falling shop numbers.
