“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.
