Founded in Queensland in 1991 by Fred & Cheryl Hawken, Touch Up Guys has grown from a single ‘man in a van’ to Australia’s largest mobile paint & bumper repair operator with a Franchisee fleet of over 100 vans.

The Franchise is still a family owned and operated business today with Fred & Cheryl’s son’s Paul (General Manager) and Glen (International CEO) driving the business to new heights each year.

About the Opportunity

Massive Demand / High Earnings Potential / Low Overheads

Touch Up Guys is Australasia’s market leader in mobile paint and bumper repairs with more than 100 successful businesses operating in Australia and New Zealand and we are now even in the USA. Our Franchise has grown in both good and bad economic times.

Founded by savvy businessman Fred Hawken 24 years ago, mobile automotive paint and bumper repair franchise Touch Up Guys, offer customers a high quality alternative to traditional panel and paint shops.

Customers no longer have to face the expense and inconvenience of losing their vehicles to a panel shop for days at a time. Touch Up Guys will come to their home or workplace and complete most repairs in a matter of hours.

As a highly trained technician using the most advanced techniques available today, you will provide high quality repairs to bumper bars, paintwork, spoilers, body kits and kerb damaged alloy wheels. Other specialties also include buffing and polishing as well as colour matching and installing reversing sensors.

With the lower costs of running a mobile business, savings are passed on to the customer with less time, money and stress spent on completing the job. Most jobs cost less than the insurance excess, saving customers from losing their insurance no-claim bonus.

A few additional benefits:
• Recession resistant business
• A proven owner operated business model
• Low investment and high income potential
• Low overheads – No retail premises to maintain
• Flexible business hours – You set your schedule
• Proven marketing and advertising programs
• Cutting-Edge Technology

The business was created in a niche market providing ‘mobile’ services initially to the commercial motor sales industry. In more recent years, the Franchise focus has expanded to include the private consumer market, capturing a higher margin sector which has enthusiastically embraced the benefits of quality, convenience and value offered by Touch Up Guys.
