Kovacs' Garage was founded in 1971 by Bob Kovacs. In 1970 Bob was working as a mechanic for a local leasing company that was sold to a national leasing company - and he felt the service to the customers was not what they deserved. At that point he decided to open his own garage where he prided himself on outstanding service. He promised himself to always provide value and outstanding service, regardless of how large his business grew. Today, his two sons, Jim and Ted, are determined to honor Bob by running a business that would truly offer value to the community.
