Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Dana Robin­son

On Tues­day Au­gust 19th, Ro­barge Col­li­sion voted Best of Utah Val­ley three years in a row, will cel­e­brate its 10th An­niver­sary at their busi­ness lo­ca­tion, 570 N. Main Street in Span­ish Fork across from the Fair­grounds (801) 798- 1967. The cel­e­bra­tion will fea­ture a free lunch served from Noon to 2 p.m., tours ev­ery 15 min­utes un­til 5 p.m., bal­loons and candy for the kids, draw­ings for two $50 Maceys Gift Cards, plus $10 will be given away ev­ery 10 min­utes start­ing at 12 Noon and end­ing at 5 p.m. in honor of the busi­nesses 10th An­niver­sary.

“It has been quite the jour­ney get­ting to where we are to­day with our fam­ily owned and op­er­ated busi­ness. As a hus­band and fa­ther it has been won­der­ful to work along­side my wife and sons and build some­thing sub­stan­tial that we can all be proud of in a city where are roots are”, stated Cary Ro­barge, Pres­i­dent of Ro­barge Col­li­sion.

Cary a third gen­er­a­tion na­tive of Span­ish Fork wanted to not only es­tab­lish a suc­cess­ful busi­ness, he wanted to build a her­itage for his fam­ily, a legacy that would con­tinue for his chil­dren and hope­fully their chil­dren.

Cary be­gan his jour­ney to where he is to­day by work­ing on cars as a boy back when his fa­ther bought him a 1954 Chevy. His in­ter­est grew and he en­rolled in the Auto Body class at Span­ish Fork High School where he and all his chil­dren have grad­u­ated from.

Striv­ing for per­fec­tion has paid off for the Ro­barge fam­ily, see­ing the busi­ness grow from less than 25 cus­tomers their first month to thou­sands of sat­is­fied cus­tomers to­day, many of them re­peat cus­tomers who re­fer oth­ers to the busi­ness. “We make sure ev­ery day that we live up to our slo­gan, Ex­cep­tional Care, Col­li­sion Re­pair”, said Ro­barge.

With reg­u­lar fam­ily cor­po­rate meet­ings with their sons Gar­rett, who is the Gen­eral Man­ager of the busi­ness, Gavin who is a Body Tech­ni­cian, and Jonathan who works in the Parts De­part­ment, the fam­ily makes sure the busi­ness stays on track, which in­cludes mak­ing sure their loyal em­ploy­ees that have been with them since they first opened their doors con­tinue to thrive in the best pos­si­ble work en­vi­ron­ment. “It means a lot to both Cary and I that we don’t have much turnover with our em­ploy­ees and that we con­stantly re­ceive calls from peo­ple want­ing to come to work for us”, stated Judy Ro­barge, Co-Owner and Of­fice Man­ager.

Through net­work­ing and ex­pand­ing his print ad­ver­tis­ing Cary has found re­la­tion­ships and even part­ner­ships with his busi­ness be­ing pro­moted at var­i­ous busi­ness lo­ca­tions, keep­ing his Ex­cep­tional Care, Col­li­sion Re­pair brand in the pub­lic eye and mind.

Not for the pub­lic but for the sin­gle mother is what the Ro­barge fam­ily fo­cuses on each year around Christ­mas time. “I found that the more we gave back to the com­mu­nity the more suc­cess the busi­ness ex­pe­ri­enced, but more than that, it just felt right and felt good to do­nate as we could, to give back. So with that in mind I talked to other busi­nesses and they joined with our busi­ness to gift a car full of Christ­mas presents to a se­lected, most de­serv­ing, in need sin­gle mother”, said Ro­barge.

Build­ing a suc­cess­ful busi­ness to­gether and mak­ing mem­o­ries that will last a life­time means more than words can say to the Ro­barge fam­ily. They look for­ward to the next 15 years and then cel­e­brat­ing another busi­ness mile­stone, be­tween now and then they will con­tinue to do what they do, work­ing for per­fec­tion, giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity and pro­vid­ing Ex­cep­tional Care, Col­li­sion Re­pair.
