I’m looking for anyone that is interested in partnering to startup a European Car repair shop in NW PA. There is a 4 bay garage/tire shop in my town that is running, but owner wants to sell. I am a mature, professional that is under employed at this time (I was a teacher for 15 years and got hosed out a principal job I took). I have been fixing and autocrossing VWs for almost twenty years at an amateur level, and am looking for an experienced tech that is trained and interested in partnering or working in my area. I’m a decent mechanic, but by no means a professional.
Shop is located in Grove City, PA. There is only one other import shop within twenty miles and he is backed up for months, so there is a market here. Grove City is located at the intersection of I79 and I80 in Western PA. There are four colleges nearby and easy access to either Pittsburgh or Erie.
Sounds good, have you thought about renting the shop ? Will you be able to sell cars as well ?
Under employed my self, all i could bring to the table is a few Vw show cars to sell an a strong
Keep us posted
