A Growth Opportunity
In 1999 when ClearBraTM introduced its vehicle paint protection in the Western United States, the response was overwhelming. Inquiries flooded in from all across the country. In 2005, after installing over 13,000 systems from its Salt Lake City based dealership, ClearBraTM looked for ways to serve the 25 million people that purchase new cars and trucks in the U.S. each year. It teamed up with seasoned franchisor BasecampTM to form ClearBraTM Franchising-a company that offers a proven business system for this exciting new industry.
Ultimate Vehicle ProtectionTM
ClearBraTM is a custom installed, clear protective system that prevents rock and road debris from chipping the paint and lights on vehicles- their most vulnerable surfaces.
At eight to fourteen mils thick, ClearBraTM protective film is composed of a self-annealing outer layer combined with an energy-absorbing under layer. This modern technology creates a trampoline effect against stone chips-a new car owner's greatest worry. Tough and reliable, ClearBraTM also insures against bug damage, minor abrasion, and weathering. Originally designed to protect race cars and helicopter blades, the ClearBraTM system is guaranteed not to fade, yellow, crack or peel. It preserves the vehicle investment and boosts resale value.
ClearBraTM protects the hood, fenders, headlights, fog lights, mirrors, bumper, rocker panels, tail-gate, and virtually any other surface at risk. It also maintains the beauty and integrity of finishes on motorcycles, RVs, boats and trailers, and motor homes.
Performance Groups/Annual Meetings
ClearBraTM owners work together to improve performance throughout our system. Every six months a group of owners will meet at a dealership to evaluate performance and make suggestions for improvement. A corporate facilitator leads the discussions and provides organized feedback. At annual meetings owners share successes and challenges, analyze industry trends, receive additional training and recognize outstanding performance.
Custom installation by a skilled ClearBraTM technician produces a finished product that enhances a vehicle's natural lines. The nearly invisible film allows the vehicle's true paint color to shine through. Film installed on the leading edge of the hood is tucked and protected which leaves no line to peel or collect dirt. And unlike unsightly bug shields and leather/vinyl bras, the ClearBraTM system is totally aerodynamic and requires no special aftercare or maintenance.
Control Your Own Future
By drawing on our 20 years of automotive and franchising experience, you will be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
