"RepairOne(R) exhibits the potential for accelerated yet controlled growth and expansion," said Todd Hayes, President and founder. "We currently operate at unit sales levels that are significantly higher than industry averages. Our team anticipates strong 2nd quarter sales increases, as indicated by our record April 2004 increase of 59.7% over April 2003, followed up by May 2004's 57% increase over May 2003. This adds to our already record-setting 1st quarter sales increase of 97% as reported for 2004, which validates RepairOne's(R) leadership position in our local market."

RepairOne(R) offers complete automotive repair and service, as noted by their award-winning advertising campaign, "Car Trouble? RepairOne(R), We Fix Everything." The company provides extended store hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday thru Saturday, offers free roundtrip customer shuttles, emergency roadside rescue, nationwide warranty, and has friendly well-dressed store associates. Also, to ensure total integrity, they digital photo each repair needed, an industry first. All mechanics are certified and most are ASE Certified Master Technicians. Most often, they facilitate same-day service.

"Due to today's fast-paced society and the increasing technology of automobiles, the auto repair industry has transformed from a do-it-yourself environment to a service provider environment," said Justin Tjarks, General Managing Partner. "We look forward to expanding our unique automotive repair concept in markets throughout the U.S."

Utilizing the right combination of superior customer service, proactive marketing, and competitive pricing, RepairOne(R) is the leading automotive service brand in their local markets. Automotive Service Leaders (ASL) recently awarded RepairOne's(R) website,, "Top Shop on the Web" for 2004, citing ease of navigation as just one of the leading factors for the award, as well as utilizing creative web jingles and full motion video and flash to reinforce the company's brand identity.

In 1986, Hayes founded Mobile Car Care, a chain of auto repair service centers. He led this company through its start-up and expansion, building it very quickly into one of the most successful of its kind. Within 10 years, Mobile Car Care had locations in three major Texas markets. He is thriving again with the immense success of the RepairOne(R) concept.
