What do you enjoy most about doing business in Channahon?

The small town feeling in a growing city. The people are friendly and everything is so well maintained!

Do you have any advice for new business owners?

Having a great support system is a must. My wife is my rock. While I am focused on the business, I rely so much on her to keep everything going smoothly at home. We work good as a team.

Also, owning a business is hard. There will be long days. But, it is very rewarding. Find your “why” – mine is my sons – and don’t lose sight of the reason that you started the business.

When you're not working, where in Channahon do you like to spend your time?

This summer we spent a lot of time at the pool. The kids love swimming and we all enjoyed the water slide. We also did the kids bowl free program and definitely spent a lot of time at the bowling alley.

Anything else?

I am a veteran. I served in the Army after high school.

My wife and I have three sons – ages 8, 6 and 6.

My father owned a similar business in Chicago called Lyons Truck Parts. I started working for him when I was about 10 years old, doing simple things like cleaning the shop. I started doing oil changes and more mechanic work. Eventually, I was running the shop. My dad retired, and he sold the company. My background was very strong in business and I knew I wanted to own my own company, so my wife decided that we would take a leap of faith, and God has been good to us so far. We pray that through honest and excellent service, our business will continue to prosper for years to come!
