Mike’s Auto Body Adds San Ramon Location to Make It an Even Dozen


 
Mike’s Auto Body added its 12th location on December 13, 2013 when it acquired San Ramon Body and Detail in San Ramon, CA. With a goal to increase the size of its market and establish a presence down the Hwy. 680 corridor, Mike’s Auto Body has long been attracted to the idea of doing business in San Ramon, a growing area with approximately 17,000 households.

Mike Rose, the owner of this 40-year-old Multi-Shop Operation (MSO) is proud of his company’s newest addition and excited about the opportunities associated with the acquisition. “We’ve been talking off and on for probably the last 10 years with Geoff Johnson, the owner of San Ramon Body and Detail about possibly buying his shop,” Mike Rose said. “Geoff has been in business at the same location for the past 35 years and he’s established an incredible track record in San Ramon by doing great work and helping the community. It’s a successful shop with enough space (25,000 square ft.) and it has a great reputation, so we’re obviously pleased about the purchase.”

“It’s an ideal match for us, because San Ramon Body and Detail’s operational standards, facility structure and employee base fits our model perfectly,” CEO at Mike’s Auto Body Brennan Rose said. “The shop sits right off of the 680 freeway (via the Crow Canyon Street exit) in the heart of the auto district of San Ramon, so it’s very conveniently located for both customers and employees.”

Manager Joe Drago and Office Manager Ericka Randall are coming from Mike’s Auto Body’s Lafayette and Concord locations, respectively, to make the changeover as seamless as possible.  “We’re confident that Joe and Ericka will hit the ground running and we’re also very pleased to be working with the team at San Ramon Body and Detail as they become part of the Mike Rose’s family,” Brennan Rose said.

Fixing cars to their pre-accident condition since 1972, Mike Rose and his family has built Mike’s Auto Body into a 12-shop organization known for its honesty and integrity with an emphasis on exemplary customer service. With two locations in Concord and Walnut Creek and one in Lafayette, Pittsburg, Antioch, Brentwood, Richmond, Fairfield Napa and now in San Ramon, Mike’s Auto Body is well-known for being an outstanding business partner in every city where it serves the public.

Mike's Auto Body Saves the Day for El Sobrante Boys & Girls Club


On Nov. 10th, the day after their annual Gala fundraiser, a safe containing approximately $6,000 in cash and other valuable items was stolen from the Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante, CA. Obviously shocked by the theft, word of the tragedy traveled quickly through the Bay Area and Mike’s Auto Body stepped up and saved the day, by donating money to the organization and covering the loss.

Billy Zeier the Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante couldn’t believe that someone would steal their safe.  “We were riding a high after raising $30,000 at our ‘We Are the Children of the World’ fundraiser,” Zeier said. “It was a huge success after almost a full year of work, so all of us were pleased. But, then the next morning we find out that the safe was gone and we all just felt deflated.”

But then the phone rang a couple days later, when Sal Contreras, Sales & Marketing Director for Mike’s Auto Body was calling to deliver some very good news. “I was actually in a meeting when Sal called,” Zeier explained. “I told my people, I’ll call as soon as I get a chance and they said, no—you should talk to him right now. When he told me that Mike’s Auto Body was going to cover the loss, we were obviously ecstatic! What an amazing thing they’ve done for us! Mike Rose and the people at Mike’s Auto Body took a bad situation and turned it around. This is a great lesson for our youth, because it shows that some people really care.”

Sal Contreras is a Boys & Girls Club alum himself, so he knows the value of the organization and how it shapes young lives. “When I was growing up in Richmond, Ca, I was a member at the Richmond Boys & Girls Club,” Contreras said. “So, when Mike Rose called me and said let’s cover their loss, I didn’t hesitate for a second before making the call. Billy was obviously surprised and when we went there to present them with the check, all of the kids couldn’t stop smiling. The El Sobrante Boys & Girls Club is a great program and they really push the educational aspect. Staying in school is one of their main messages and that’s why many of their members have gone on to attend college.”

Ragen Ortland, Operations Manager at Mike’s Auto Body was happy to be in a position to help the Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante. "When we heard about the incident with the Boys & Girls Club, we were appalled that someone would steal from a non-profit and especially a non-profit that benefits children,” Ortland said. “My father (Owner Mike Rose) told us that he wanted to replace the missing funds and we immediately agreed with his decision. This time of year is difficult enough and to have something like this happen can be very disheartening. We felt that replacing the missing funds was the least we can do during this holiday season."

The Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante was established in 1958 when a group of parents were concerned about the lack of facilities and activities for boys in the neighborhood. In 1998, the Girls Club, previously a separate organization located in the building next door, joined the Boys Club to create the Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante.  

Members participate in a variety of programs within the five core areas of Arts; Education & Career Development; Sports, Fitness & Recreation; Health & Life Skills; and Character & Leadership Development. The club is affiliated with the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA), with 4,000 clubs nationwide and representing 4.1 million children.

The Boys & Girls Club of El Sobrante serves children ages 7-18 from West Contra Costa, including El Sobrante, and its surrounding cities of Richmond, El Cerrito, San Pablo, Pinole, Hercules, Crockett, and Rodeo. At the beginning of the school year, members set personal, school, and career goals, which are reviewed at the end of the school year.

Mike's Auto Body is a 41-year-old family-owned business with 11 locations in Concord, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Pittsburg, Antioch, Brentwood, Richmond, Fairfield, and Napa.

And one final note: On November 22, detectives arrested a 47-year-old man at his home after a search warrant was served at the home and stolen property taken from the club was found inside, according to Contra Costa County Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee. The man is out on bail and awaiting trial and innocent until proven guilty.

Mike's Auto Body and Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms Partner for Fairfield's Veteran's Day Parade


On November 11, Mike’s Auto Body participated in the City of Fairfield’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade, celebrating our nation’s heroes and showing their ongoing support of the Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms. With representatives from both organizations walking the parade route with banners and a flat bed truck displaying a box sculpture commemorating Mike’s Auto Body’s commitment to helping the Blue Star Moms and their care package program, it was a beautiful day as bands, local leaders, classic cars and motorcycles galore participated in the parade.

Nikki Anderson, president of the Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms explained what the organization does and the role it plays in Fairfield. “We are moms that have come together to support each other,” Anderson said.  “We are moms that currently have or have had in the past children serving our country in the military. We provide support for deployed troops by sending them care packages, letters and cards and providing a little love from home, which is so important. We also lend support to their families while they are away protecting and fighting for our freedom. We are huge promoters of patriotism and that’s why we always assist in veterans’ organizations, and we visit with the wounded warriors that come through Travis AFB, sometimes weekly. It is our mission to serve those who have served and that’s why our hearts are on the line until they all come home! We are moms who aren’t afraid to make a difference.”

How did Mike Rose’s Auto Body partner with and support the Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms? “They contacted us to work with them on the Veterans Day Parade to support our veterans past and present,” Anderson said.  “Mike’s Auto Body is a huge supporter of our troops and our community. They will be helping us with donations to fill boxes to send in our next packing to our deployed men and women on an on-going basis and we’re so proud of everything they do.”   

Margaret Manzo is the Executive Director of the Fairfield Main Street Association, the organization that annually organizes the city’s Veteran’s Day Parade. “Our parade was a huge success this year,” Manzo said. “It ran eight city blocks and we estimate that 4,000 people were there to experience this great event. Mike's Auto Body’s sponsored our parade last year and they’ve offered us volunteers when we’ve needed them. They want to active members of the community here and they’ve been really supportive. We’re an Air Force town here in Fairfield and that’s who we are. There are 106,000 people here in Fairfield, but we still have a small town atmosphere where everybody seems to know and support each other.”

Sal Contreras, the Marketing and Sales manager for Mike’s Auto Body has been instrumental in reaching out to the Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms and the Fairfield Main Street Association. “This year, we wanted to create awareness for the Vintage Valley Blue Star Moms and the care package program we’ve been doing with them,” Contreras explained. “Each one of our 11 locations has been assembling care packages to be sent to deployed troops. We’ve got a list with almost 100 items on there—from snacks to clothing and anything else that can comfort the soldiers as they’re away from home and out there defending our country. This is the kind of community work we really enjoy doing here at Mike’s Auto Body.”

The 2013 Benevolence Application is Now LIVE!


 
Every December, deserving people who need reliable transportation are chosen to receive completely refurbished vehicles. It’s called Mike Rose’s Benevolence Program and is well-known throughout the country as being one of the longest and most successful programs of its type.

The program is a community relationship program, where we refurbish "new" used cars and present them to deserving families and non-profit organizations during the holidays. By giving cars to individuals and families and changing their lives, Mike Rose’s Auto Body plays a huge role in helping people within the communities they serve.

Everything is donated; the cars, our technicians’ time and labor, paint materials, mechanical checks, tires, parts from our dealers and business partners. Monetary donations from our Independent Insurance Agents and Mike's Auto Body, helps to pay for the first year of insurance for each recipient.

We have partnered with the Blue Star Moms, Youth Homes, Travis Air Force Base Family Readiness Center, Foster A Dream, Children's Hospital of Oakland, and Monument Crisis Center to help find recipients.

 

To be considered as a recipient, you must fill out the application on line, you must have a valid driver’s license, and you must be insurable. The most important part of the application is the written one page letter explaining "why the lack of reliable transportation interferes with your current and future economic status, and how receiving this automobile will assist you in becoming self-sufficient".

“Mike Rose’s Auto Body has been participating in the Benevolence Program for the last 13 years!” Mike Rose’s Auto Body’s Marketing Manager Sal Contreras explained. We’ve been doing this for 40 years now and have donated 40 cars in total to the community, one for each year in business. It’s been a great journey and we’re happy to be announcing that the application process for 2013 opened on October 1st.”

With so many deserving families, the difficult part of the program is to pick the recipient. The letters are read by the technicians that worked on the cars and they are the ones that select their recipients.

We are fortunate to have six cars this year to "give away" during the holiday season and we will host two events, one at our Napa location and one at our Antioch Location.

Napa BBQ a Huge Success!




Napa knows wine making and Mike’s Auto Body knows fixing cars. The Mike’s Auto Body location in Napa hosted a summer barbecue at its new shop at 804 Napa Street on August 6th. Notable guests included Napa's Mayor Jill Techel, members of the Napa Sunrise Rotary, the Napa Chamber of Commerce and representatives from the Napa Boys & Girls Club. In addition, representatives from local auto dealerships and insurance agents representing State Farm, Farmers, Allstate and Nationwide were on hand.

Mike’s Auto Body has been in Napa for approximately one year and this family-owned and operated business has received top reviews from the first day it opened its doors. Mike’s Auto Body has been in the collision repair business for more than 40 years and has 11 locations throughout Contra Costa, Solano and Napa counties.

Here are some comments from some of Napa’s leaders about Mike’s Auto Body and their role in Napa:

“Mike’s Auto Body, a new to Napa family owned business, is a wonderful addition to the Napa business community. As a Napa Chamber Ambassador, I had the pleasure to attend a most delicious luncheon last week where I met the entire ‘family.’ Welcome to Napa Mike’s Auto Body!”

-Maureen Eckert, Workplace Training Institute Lead, Napa Valley Adult Education

“Mike’s Auto Body in Napa is clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and experienced in auto body work. If I ever need auto body work, I’ll head to Mike’s! I’m so happy they’re in Napa now!”


-Kathleen Dreessen, Chamber of Commerce Ambassador
