repair shop

  • Locally owned Dave’s Car Care, Inc. enters its 35th year of business bringing accolades that only few achieve. With humble beginnings, Dave Denmon opened a tire shop on the corner of 51st Avenue and Peoria in Glendale on April 15, 1980, remembering lessons learned from his father.
  • More than 45 years ago, Ozzie Bombaro's work as a gas station owner included towing broken down cars to be repaired. Many of the cars he hooked to the back of his tow truck had been disabled by transmission or drivetrain problems. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Ozzie saw the business potential in owning a transmission repair shop. 
  • Most independent shops start out as a vision of being your own boss, of building success on your own accomplishments. David Estes realized this through an unusual route: He bought a shop on Craigslist.

  • Opening one repair shop can be intimidating. Going from one location to two is even bigger. In some ways, growing the number of locations is kind of like being a parent – you don’t know what to expect. So says Jeff Matt, owner of Victory Auto Service and Glass.
