  • Sal Garcia of Fremont Auto Center in Fremont, California, is presented with the Fastest Growing Shop award. This award is given to the fastest-growing business for 2023 based on year-over-year revenue data available through the Shop Boss platform. 

"Will, Jim, and Sal are all leaders in the aftermarket, with highly successful businesses that are an inspiration to the entire industry," said Shop Boss General Manager Cavan Robinson. "It's our great pleasure to shine a light on the impact they're making on their customers and crew. Shop Boss is thrilled to be partnered with these dynamic shops as they represent the best and brightest in the aftermarket space."
