Josh Laur and Matt Landowski are the proud owners of a new Maaco location in Waterloo, Ont. The 9400-square-foot facility is a new venture for the pair of entrepreneurs, who both come from outside the automotive industry. "Matt and I were looking for a franchise, but felt the sandwich business didn’t really do it for us," says Laur.

The appeal of the Maaco business model was immediate--solid support with enough room to operate the business in their own style--and the two have already forged ahead, building bridges within the Waterloo community they both call home. The shop currently employs four staff.

“We're already getting a lot of third-party work and smaller repairs. People actually leave notes on cars in parking lots here. It actually makes me proud of living here," says Laur.
