MAACO Unconventional Convention
OCTOBER 21-25, 2020
Message from APA
To our members and fellow Maaco franchisees,
What we're experiencing as a result of the pandemic is unprecedented in many ways. The safety of Maaco family is our highest priority. Around the country, local shops have closely followed guidance from health authorities to protect the health and safety of our employees in our centers.
After confirming with Maaco corporate we would not be having our annual convention, many franchise owners have discussed the possibility of getting together. We're all anxious about the news, stressed and stretched from dealing with the day-to-day disruption. The times we're living in now are most likely taking a toll on all of us. With that being said and the help of our long time friend Margie Ford, a date and location has been decided to keep an annual convention in place. This convention will not have all of the bells and whistles as a Maaco sponsored event but It will allow an opportunity as leaders to get together and discuss the challenges ahead of us during this pandemic as well as wins we have all had during the past year.
Maaco corporate supports us and wants what's best for our families, employees, friends and centers.
We must remain confident that Maaco, and the communities we proudly serve, will rebound by working together as the Maaco family has always done.
(still a work in progress)
Spend time with your fellow Maaco peers, friends and family in what could be one of Maaco's best destinations ever!
