Co-owner Anthony Ferranti Jr. is the son of a body shop owner who has been reconditioning and detailing vehicles for 20 years. The business is already talking about expanding, adding a full time employee and purchasing a mobile unit for detailing boats at marinas.

The owners are looking forward to being involved with the community, and the shop hopes to host a charity event this year. “We’ve always helped those sort of events, now we want to have our own,” Co-owner Paul McAteer said in the story.
