Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers in Howell, Michigan Becomes Locally Owned

(Howell, MI) Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers located in Howell, Michigan, once under the ownership of franchisor Auto-Lab Franchising, LLC, is now locally owned and operated. Owners Andy Dobek and Travis Dwyer assumed the location at the end of 2017 and look forward to the New Year.

“I started out by working at Auto-Lab Howell as a Master Technician a few years ago”, says Andy Dobek, part owner of Auto-Lab Howell. “The opportunity to take over the store as an owner was brought to me and I then brought in my partner Travis to make this location an even more integral part of the Howell community.”

Auto-Lab Howell has been in business serving the community for many years and is a well-known establishment. Customers can expect the same quality repair and service provided by the dealership without the dealership price. Auto-Lab is partners with vendors such as AutoZone, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Advance Auto and Motown Automotive, to provide parts and a nationwide warranty. Currently Auto-Lab offers a nationwide 12-month/12,000-mile warranty on parts and labor that is valid at any Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers location. This is value that Auto-Lab has been providing customers since its beginnings in 1989. 

 “As a company, we were delighted to transition this ownership to new owners who are not only knowledgeable about the Auto-Lab brand, but are also members of the community in which they serve”, says Stephen R. Wilson, President and COO of Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers. “Howell is a close knit community and Andy and Travis bring that small town connection that is needed to operate this location.”

Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers, in operation since 1989, is a growing auto repair franchise business with an emphasis on being the complete car care alternative to the dealer. The company currently has 26 franchised locations in Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Florida and Texas. The company is set to expand in 2018 with the opening of a new location in Kankakee, Illinois.  This will be the first Illinois location for the franchise.
