History of Affordable Automotive
In high school Mike took a shop class and had a knack for fixing cars. He did brake jobs and oil changes for the teachers at the school. After school he found himself working at a quick lube.
His father asked him what his long term plan was and by this time Mike was enjoying working on cars and had found that he wanted to go into business for himself. He told his father, “I want to own my own repair shop.”
So, one day his dad walks in and hands him an ad for a tire shop up for sale. They scraped the money together and bought the shop. Mike started out doing basic repairs and tires, then added general repair and smog checks. Today the shop is a full-service and complete auto repair center that employs 2 service writers, 4 mechanics and has 7 bays. Mike prides himself on providing a fun, productive and rewarding work environment for his employees.
Mike and his wife are people that like to give back. They now enjoy being able to work with local charities and participate in community activities. Mike is proud that the shop is very well respected in the community. His wife has also been able to pursue her Master’s degree and work with children – her passion.
