History

Hi, my name is John, and this is a little story behind John’s Auto Shop. In the mid 80’s I graduated from WITI, Rice Lake, Wi with an associates degree in automotive repair. I then moved to the Twin Cities in search of employment in the automotive field. Shortly after I moved to the Cities, I was hired at Airport Amoco at 66th and Cedar. I worked there as an auto technician-manager for about 10 years. In 1994 I was offered a job at the Richfield Smith Nielsen, which I accepted. I worked as an auto technician at Smith Nielsen until January 2001, which is when my wife and I bought the business. On April 1st 2007 we decided to change the name of the business to John’s Auto Shop. As always, John’s Auto Shop is providing the very best auto service possible.

I am fortunate to have a very supportive wife (Mary) and two great kids, Ashley and John. Although stressful at times, I do enjoy operating my own business. Hope I didn’t bore you too much!

Thanks for your time.

John Heath
