Shine Factory Franchise System (protection and detailing of vehicles)

The Shine Factory is the largest automotive and detail business serving our nation for over 30 years.  In 1979 the first Shine Factory opened in Calgary and is in their 35th year.  We can now be found from coast to coast.  We are looking to grow and duplicate the same quality and valued service that we have in our existing locations into more of Canada and all over the world.

People bring their vehicles to the Shine Factory for a variety of reasons.  Properly maintaining your vehicle makes good economic sense, whether keeping it for a long time or as an investment for a higher resale value, there is always a need for this type of service.  Some people simply enjoy the added pleasure of driving a clean car.

The Shine Factory Franchise gives you the right or license to use the Shine Factory logos, products, systems and procedures.  The benefit of being a part of a franchise system is the tremendous advantage of gaining instant recognition.  The benefit of operating under an already established system is that it has been developed and proven in the market place while the franchisor continues to research market demands so you don’t have to.  Franchising gives you the opportunity to build a profitable business that can be resold if you choose.

Unique to the Shine Factory Systems, we provide an online warranty system that provides protective warranties on vehicles for up to 10 years. The warranty is with Entire Car Protection.  ECP is the top warranty product in the Industry. The products we use come from our main supplier ECP, who constantly research and test new products that keep Shine Factory at the forefront of the automotive detailing industry, keeping our customers satisfied.


It is our intent to have qualified, motivated personnel to ensure the success of each location, and, ultimately each Franchisee.  A complete training program will be available at our head office in Dartmouth, N.S.  In-house training of up to 2 weeks (as required) for initial set up is also available.  The support is ongoing and provided with our online website, our toll free line which directs you to knowledgeable staff at the head office level.  Meetings and training courses are offered periodically as the need arises by either the Franchisee or Franchisor. Support from the existing Franchise owners is readily available as we are all here to help one another succeed.
