With over 400 locations, 1300 service centers in 37 countries, Ziebart has been on the investment list of worldwide multi-unit buyers for several years. Boosting an impressive average stores sales of over $1.3 million, an average store Gross profit of 50%, and an average net EBITDA of 30%, qualified investors have seen a strong return with Ziebart. The opportunity is fueled by a number of factors including the growing automotive aftermarket business ($500 billion), low competition, brand recognition, world class products and services and a passionate support team with an extensive background fueled by innovation.
Ziebart is home to many multi-unit owners. Take the Mattiacio Group out of Upstate NY. This group owns 8 stores in Greater Western and Upstate NY, all of which are well over the average store sales figure. The team has been with the Ziebart brand for over 30 years (fun fact: our average length of franchise ownership is 26 years, way above industry average). The Mattiacio Group, attributes their success to a number of different factors including brand recognition and brand loyalty, executing the Ziebart business model, trusting in your staff and knowing that if you’re not growing, you’re moving backwards.
After Nick Lambie, another multi-unit owner saw a huge success with his first store in Morgantown, WV, he knew right away he could duplicate that successful formula with another store. “We want to offer our products to more people across the state. Just as important, we want to give our employees an opportunity to grow and empower them to run a new store. It’s exciting being a part of something that’s bigger than yourself and to expand a brand.”
Multi-unit Ziebart ownership isn’t just for the domestic investors. In fact, Ziebart has multi-unit owners with Master Franchise agreements in 37 different countries. Master franchise agreements allow the owner full rights to the Ziebart trademarks in their country. It also allows the Owners to sub-franchise the brand to ensure its growth. The Galadari Group, a Master Franchise owner in the UAE has successfully grown the Ziebart brand in the UAE for over 40 years. The Galadari Group are the official dealer for Mazda cars, and they currently operate five Ziebart stores in the Emirates. Being a major car dealer, Ziebart was the right choice for the Galadari to diversify their portfolio.
