Pathetic Medic Franchise Information
Pathetic Medic is a franchise for a business providing mobile auto appearance services. It was founded in 1984 and started franchising in 2005.
They target people who turn in a leased vehicle. They say that if you have them clean your interior and fix the small chips on the paint, they can help you get your full deposit back. They are called Pathetic Medic for a reason and that is because they call those pathetic little problems that they can easily fix. They have been featured in USA Today, Chester County Daily Local, Phoenixville News, and Lancaster News. They now have four locations in the United States and one location that is being operated by the company.
What services do they offer at Pathetic Medic?
They repair glass, paint scratches, hood chips, restore headlights, windshields, leather, odor, stains, burn holes, and other interior services. They do only cosmetic repairs and they help rejuvenate the interiors of the vehicle. This helps the dealers and owners save on replacement costs. Their shop is mobile which means that they also help save their customer’s time. What their medic does is firstly inspect the vehicle. They create a list of needed repairs and have management approve it. Then they complete the job. The medics work full time which means that after they are done with one, they move on to another customer.
