Founded by Robert Lowery in 1988, Colors on Parade began with a vision to provide the automotive industry with body shop quality repairs from a mobile unit, thus allowing services to be conducted on the customer’s own site; all while maintaining cost-effective pricing. This vision was grounded in Mr. Lowery’s long-time passion for restoring classic cars. Mr. Lowery spent endless hours perfecting his patented processes, and in 1988, his vision was realized. That year, the first Colors on Parade began operating in South Carolina. In 1991, the first Colors on Parade franchise was granted in North Carolina.
In the years that followed, Colors on Parade grew with a record number of new franchises being granted throughout the U.S. Today, Colors on Parade’s customer base includes car dealerships, fleet owners, rental car agencies, body shops, and individual vehicle owners.
In the past few years, Colors on Parade again expanded to offer services to retail customers.
Currently, Colors on Parade franchises have locations in 31 states.
