Maaco, a leader in automotive paint and collision repair, is partnering with Pep Boys to launch in-store satellite shops across the U.S.

The first two Maaco satellite shops will open inside existing Pep Boys stores in Marietta, Ga., and Union City, Ga., near Atlanta. A nationwide rollout will follow. Three locations are planned for the Los Angeles area in the coming weeks, Maaco said.

These shops will offer auto painting, collision repair, fleet and industrial services, paintless dent repair, scratch repair, detailing, insurance claims, 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.”
