After 27 years working his way up through the ranks of local GM dealerships with the last 9 years as a Service Manager, Mike Thorp decided to make a leap of faith and take control of his future and financial security of his family. In 2009, Mike and family established Superior Auto Repair in a rented, single bay warehouse style shop with a small office/customer waiting area. The original goal was to open this small repair facility where he could work one-on-one with customers and provide large Dealership quality at an independent price. As time went on and customer base grew, a move to a larger, rented space happened in early 2011 but the mission was the same, provide quality maintenance and repair services in a clean, comfortable, friendly environment where customers are treated like a member of the family.
In 2016, another leap of faith was made by the Thorp family and a decision made to build from the ground up a well planned, centrally located facility with room to grow. On December 19, 2016 we officially opened in our new, 12 bay facility with sunken alignment rack and even though making the move was challenging, it has been all worth it! The SAR team has grown from 2 to 12. Business is continuing to grow and long-term relationships are being made each and every day.
