TROY, MI  –  Ziebart International Corporation., the global leader in automotive detailing, films and protection services, is proud to announce its second location in Texas, its newest franchise store in League City/Houston, Texas. The license was granted to Javier Pena on September 11th, 2014 with the Grand Opening scheduled for May 2015.

“We are very excited about our second Ziebart store in Texas and just as excited about the increase in requests for franchise applications this year,” said Daniel C. Baker, President of Ziebart Corporation, headquartered in Troy, Michigan.

Ziebart is one of the oldest franchise companies in the country. Founded in 1959, it has operations in 20 states and 32 countries around the world.

For 2015, Entrepreneur Magazine ranks Ziebart at #40 in its Top 200 Global Franchise Companies and #171 domestically among its Top 500 U.S Franchise Operators. A typical Ziebart franchise investment starts at $167,000 and the company waives the franchise fee for veterans. U.S. Franchise store sales average $840,000 with over 25% of stores grossing over $1 Million annually.

“Nobody does car care protection better than Ziebart,” said Baker. “Our heritage and history combined with high-tech, cutting edge products and superior customer service makes a Ziebart a great value for franchisees.” Ziebart offers single and multi-store or master franchise opportunities to qualified investors. While many small businesses fail within three years, the average Ziebart store owner has been leading the market for over 20 years.

Baker added with new car loans being extended to six years and even seven years, people are looking for ways to keep their vehicles looking brand new inside and out and Ziebart is the ultimate solution.

A typical Ziebart automotive center has a diversified product offering, including:

  • Z-Shield® Paint Protection Film, an optically clear but extremely tough protection for a vehicle’s most vulnerable areas to prevent paint chips from stones and road debris

  • Z-Central® technology advanced interior and exterior auto detailing system

  • Diamond Gloss® Paint Protection, “the toughest paint protection on the planet”

  • Rhino-Linings® polyurethane spray-on bed liner bonds to a truck bed for permanent protection against damage and corrosion

  • Ziebart’s exclusive undercoating, abrasion resistant and self-sealing to protect against small road debris

  • Ziebart total body rust protection, an upper body sealant that penetrates all upper body seams, joints and areas most vulnerable to corrosion

  • Window tint, cut with our Z-Cutting System® to ensure all film will be cut to the exact specifications of a vehicle’s windows

  • Remote start / alarms

  • Windshield chip repair

“This Grand Opening, in this new market of League City/Houston is very important to all of us at Ziebart,” said President Daniel C. Baker. “We are re-introducing the Ziebart brand from coast-to-coast, introducing our latest high-tech product Z-Shield® Paint Protection Film, and we are opening new franchises in the USA and around the globe.  We wish Javier and his wife Maricella great success in delivering quality Ziebart products and services to customers in the great state of Texas.” Ziebart’s additional Texas franchised location is in Corpus Christi and has been in operation since 2012.

Ziebart International Corporation represents a global franchise network of vehicle appearance and protection services for over 55 years. Kurt Ziebart, the corporation’s late founder, rust protected his first vehicle in 1954 and established the business in Detroit, Michigan in 1959. The corporation currently operates 400 locations in 32 countries with over 800 processing centers worldwide. Ziebart is the world’s leading name in automotive services that protect, preserve, and enhance the appearance of cars and trucks.  For location information visit Ziebart.com.
