Brian Greenley is the owner and operator of Maaco Auto Painting & Collision Repair of Littleton, CO. His first experience with Maaco dates back to his teen years when, as an 18-year-old, he drove his Camaro to a local Maaco franchise to get some work done, according to Business News Day. Immediately, Greenley was attracted to Maaco, appreciating the straightforward nature with which the business was run. He asked to work at the location full-time and since then, has been hooked.
Working as an employee, Greenley realized that certain improvements could be made to the shop. So, he dove headfirst into the franchise. Although financing was hard to obtain, especially considering he was only a 19-year-old, he sold his beloved Camaro to help finance his Maaco franchise.
Once he was able to purchase the franchise, Greenley put 100 percent into improving the shop. Over the years, the business gained profitability and expanded in size. Greenley grew close with his employees and made family time a priority for himself and his entire team.
Greenley still owns his Maaco franchise and has grown to become the leader in the Maaco franchise system for 18 years.
