Key Talking Points

  • NAPA Shop of the Year 2021
  • Been in business 28 years- joined the NAPA mentoring program
  • Being open to new ideas. Don't say “because that is the way we have always done it”, especially in a husband/wife team
  • “Is there a better way to do it?”
  • Not about being “right” but it’s about being efficient and trying different ways to get there 
  • Fixing cars doesn’t mean your business is automatically successful- building customer trust/service (DVI), processes/procedures  
  • Impact of social media- reviews, social media accounts, keeping relevancy, community involvement
