Total Car Franchising Corporation, the franchisor of Colors on Parade and CarLove mobile automotive reconditioning, has announced the opening of its newest franchise unit in Atlanta, GA. Servicing the Metro Atlanta area, the new franchise is owned and operated by Christiaan Marais and his stepson Chris Namor.
Working alongside area developer Rob Ocello, the father-son duo will bring EcoSmart mobile automotive paint and dent repair services to their community at an affordable price. In addition, the new franchise will provide car dealerships with the highest quality reconditioning services for their inventory with a quick turnaround time.
Originally from South Africa, Marais has been involved in just about every aspect of mobile auto reconditioning over the past 20 years. Throughout his career, he has worked for several well-known brands such as Dent Werks, Doctor Leather and Dent Wizard. Most recently, he has been running his own retail location in Cumming, GA, Five Star Dents & Dings, specializing in automotive paintless dent repair.
“I realized the business potential to add paint repair to our existing services and wanted to be part of a reputable and established company,” said Marais. “I’m excited about the opportunity for growth and to help our customers by providing a much-needed service.”
Chris Namor recently completed Total Car Franchising Corporation’s paint repair training and certification program at the company’s headquarters in Conway, SC. They are now back in Atlanta getting their new CarLove business underway.
“As we continue to grow Colors on Parade and CarLove with more locations across the country, it is a goal to make convenient, affordable mobile paint and dent repair services accessible for our customers,” said Jeff Cox, president of Total Car Franchising Corporation. “A key component to doing so is our group of passionate franchisees who provide a high level of expertise and professionalism to our customers. We are excited to welcome Christiaan Marais and Chris Namor to the team and look forward to their success with CarLove!”
