The high-performance protective coating and automotive accessories franchisor, LINE-X, has announced the awarding of 15 franchise agreements across the U.S. and Canada over the course of 2021, and is still seeking more franchisees to welcome to the network before 2022.
Many of the franchise agreements represent areas that will be served by LINE-X for the first time, such as Chattanooga, Tennessee, Flagstaff, Arizona, and Conroe, Texas. The franchise network is 549-strong across the U.S. and Canada, but the brand has plans to pass 600 franchise locations either open or in development before the year is out.
“This has been an incredibly strong year so far for the growth of our franchise network,” said Tim Tyrka, director of franchise sales of LINE-X.
“Since the start of 2021, our award-winning network has attracted great operators who are serving a rapidly-growing customer base demanding our products and services.
“The hard work and dedication that our franchisees bring to the table has elevated LINE-X to be the successful brand it is today, and we look forward to partnering with more promising candidates in the coming months.”
The LINE-X franchise development team is targeting the following areas:
- Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler and Surprise-Sun City, Arizona.
- Bentonville and Rogers, Arkansas.
- Long Beach and Santa Rosa, California.
- Gainesville, Homestead and Kissimmee, Florida.
- Durham, Charlotte and Greensboro, North Carolina.
- Norman, Oklahoma.
- Bend, Oregon.
- Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
- Nashville, Tennessee.
- College Station, Texas
- Salt Lake City, Provo and Ogden, Utah
“Used car prices are skyrocketing as the manufacturing of new cars slows due to the global chip shortage, while RV and boat purchases are soaring as interest grows in camping and other outdoor activities,” said Tyrka.
“Current automotive marketplace trends like these are driving increasing demand for LINE-X services. In short, there is no better time to become a LINE-X franchise owner.”
