“I had an independent transmission shop for ten years, started in the business 5 years prior to that. I wanted to build for the future and I wanted to build a business that would be worth something in the end and something I could start to step away from the day to day operations of fixing the vehicles. Tara’s father had been in the Cottman organization for a long time prior to that so Cottman was a brand I looked into to open a franchise and sold my independent. The reputation, the name, and knowing we are leader in the industry. We are on the fore front of our marketing. We are on the fore front of our technology. Knowing the vehicles, being able to repair the vehicles and staying ahead of other shops in their diagnostic capabilities and repair capabilities.”
– Tara and Ted Boyer, Cottman of St. Peters, MO
“25 years of business in the corporate world at some point I realized I wanted to work for myself and Cottman seemed to be a great opportunity to do that where my only boss would be my customers. Our name in the business, in our market place in the City of Norfolk, the repeat business we get and system wide. I don’t know of a Cottman center that doesn’t have a great tradition, name, reputation. We come to these conventions, meet everybody and we understand why.”
