Overview

As with most innovative products and services, ClearBra offers a unique business franchise opportunity for entrepreneurial individuals interested in the automotive industry. The ClearBra concept features comparatively low franchise fees, manageable operations, valuable corporate support, and, best of all, high profit margins.


Products & Services

ClearBra applies modern technology to the concept of the vinyl car bra of the 1980’s — only without the bulky removable vinyl bra that can cause friction damage to paint. ClearBra is a custom installed, nearly invisible car bra that provides ultimate auto paint protection. Skilled ClearBra installers custom fit a razor-thin, dual-layered, clear film to vulnerable surfaces of your car, creating a repellent for the hazards of the open road — auto paint protection from rocks, bugs and debris. An investment in ClearBra auto paint protection keeps your car in mint condition — it's the Ultimate Vehicle Protection.

It’s an auto paint protection system that prevents chipping of the paint and lights on your valuable automobiles. At only eight to fourteen mils thick, ClearBra auto paint protection is composed of a self-annealing outer layer combined with an energy-absorbing under layer. This modern technology creates a trampoline effect against rock chips - a prized car owner's greatest worry. Tough and reliable, ClearBra also insures against bug damage, minor abrasion, and weathering.


Training & Support

At ClearBra, we recognize that the success of the franchisor is directly related to the success of the franchisee. In fact, we can only be as successful as the collective level of success enjoyed by our franchisees. Accordingly, we are highly committed to ensuring that you are well trained, given the proper tools, and receive ample support to launch and build your automotive business franchise.

As a new ClearBra franchisee you will have access to an array of skilled and seasoned professionals whose primary interest is your success. A real estate attorney will visit your market and assist you in selecting a site and negotiating favorable lease terms. Our designer will draft and coordinate the fit-up of your shop. During a 10-day training period a team of specialists will teach you the critical disciplines required to successfully run a ClearBra shop, including installation, customer service, marketing, accounting, and management. A seasoned support representative with an MBA degree will help you write a business plan, research your market, and visit your shop during its grand opening phase. After you open, this representative will also work closely with you to help you meet your goals and overcome any obstacles.

Additional support mechanisms include a toll-free ClearBra support line, a shop owner's support intranet, and an annual training and team-building convention.

You will also benefit from participating in ClearBra's performance group mentoring program. Up to five franchisees and a corporate facilitator will visit a shop over a two-day period. The group examines all aspects of the business, from sales and installation to accounting and marketing. They then make suggestions for improvement to the owner. The next morning the team meets at a hotel and briefly discusses – one by one – the performance of the visitors' shops. Again recommendations are made. In six months the performance group visits another ClearBra shop.


Why Clearbra?

The ClearBra automotive business franchise concept is a perfect fit for the current trends of the automotive aftermarket. In the United States approximately 21,640 auto dealers sell over 17 million new vehicles a year-an average of 779 new cars per dealership.* But they are under extreme pressure to offer rebates and other incentives to maintain sales—practice that severely limits profits. For example, in 1994, the average dealer sold $33,009,335, but only made $559,686 in profits–a meager 1.7%. The average profit per vehicle was a pitiful $718.47.

Since auto dealers make so little money on the sale of the vehicle, they have been forced to find income from automotive aftermarket product sales. As a result, the sale of financing, extended warranties, insurance plans, undercoatings, Perma Plating®, and upholstery treatments are on the rise.

As an automotive aftermarket product with significant profit potential, ClearBra auto paint protection systems make good sense to auto dealer partners. Current ClearBra franchisees have realized a significant sales volume through proper positioning of the ClearBra product and installation service to auto dealer partners in their local automotive aftermarket sales arena.

In addition to new vehicle sales, of the 120 million used vehicles on the road, nearly 12 million are resold each year. While many of these vehicles may be too worn or damaged to warrant the expense of a ClearBra auto paint protection system, the more pristine vehicles are excellent candidates for the ClearBra product.

ClearBra auto paint protection also appeals to the direct market of high-end vehicle owners and vehicle enthusiasts. Current franchisees have successfully used direct response and mass media advertising campaigns to catch the attention and win the business of individuals seeking to protect their prized autos from roadway debris.


Are You a Good Fit for Clearbra?

Running your ClearBra franchise as an absentee owner is not advisable. Unless you have an unusually committed, self-directed manager and staff, you will be much more successful if you take an active role in the day-to-day operations.

Initially you will serve as the ClearBra salesman and shop manager and will hire one part-time installer. A well established ClearBra franchise, selling one hundred installations each month, requires two to three installers, depending on skill levels.

Surprisingly little inventory is required to run your ClearBra franchise. A shop can be opened with $8,000 in auto paint protection film and supplies.

Building and maintaining lasting relationships with auto dealers is the key to your success as a ClearBra franchisee. You solidify dealer relationships by consistently offering their customers great customer service. Other ingredients for success include access to adequate startup capital, stringent financial management, and the ability to teach and train excellence to shop staff and technicians. Ultimately your success will depend on your organization, commitment, and willingness to follow ClearBra's proven system.

The ClearBra franchise investment represents an exciting opportunity for an individual to enter the automotive business industry with an innovative retail and automotive aftermarket concept.

Initial investments range between $102,800 and $193,000.

These estimates are based on our experience in the automotive, retail, shopping center, and computer industries. You should carefully review these figures with your business advisor, accountant and attorney before making the decision to purchase a ClearBra franchise.
