Drive N Style Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022

Background

Drive N Style is a subsidiary of Driven Brands, one of the world's largest franchisors of automotive concepts.

We offer consumers the advantage of expert vehicle appearance care and enhancements at their home, work or place of business. As the nation's only mobile provider, we bring a full range of vehicle appearance care and enhancement services directly to consumers.

Franchise owners benefit further from our proven business-to-business (B2B) model with new and used car dealers that provides for a consistent, ongoing revenue stream. Nearly every used vehicle sold at a car dealership requires some form of interior or exterior restoration. Since most dealerships obtain these services from multiple providers, Drive N Style delivers the added benefit of obtaining all these services from a single, trusted source.

In addition to a wide array of services, Drive N Style provides car dealerships with a host of profit opportunities that enables them to offer Drive N Style services to their customers in the Finance Office and in the Service Drive. This differentiates Drive N Style from its competitors.
