Excellent and affluent community for general repairs Specialized expertise draws from a wider geographic location due to excellent reputation and limited competition for specialized repairs

Potential Growth:

The owner lives remotely and only works approx. 10 hours per week. A fully time, on-site owner who can do service writing and/or tech-wrenching would likely improve the bottom line. Business is not open on Saturday, so being open on Saturday, even if only a half day could increase throughput. Expand into more bays, leverage brand to open satellite shops
