Dave Persico started Dave's Automotive in 1984 as a natural progression to help feed his passion for all things mechanical.
After repairing family and friends vehicles outdoors since his teen years, the first real shop was opened at 4169 North Buffalo Street in Orchard Park (now NOCO Express). This location, a three bay, closed down Sunoco gas station was a scary first step as a other, established repair shops were across the street and just down the road.
In time, Dave's small, honest garage grew. More and more people became loyal customers along with their friends and family members.
By 1990, more room was needed. A closed auto dealership (Carrow Chevrolet) at 6185 West Quaker Road became available. With 8 service bays this seemed to be ,"just the ticket", and not too far from the growing customer base that we had enjoyed.
Once again, business continued to grow with more and more general automotive customers and an increasing number of fleet truck accounts. Again, we needed more room.
The larger required service area was found at the Southtowns Business Center just outside the village. Ten service bays, six electric hoists, two fabrication bays and a comfortable waiting room became Dave's Automotive's permanent home!
Always remembering where we came from and how we started reminds us how valuable each customer is and we promise to service every one of you with honesty, fairness and respect.
Thank you for your patronage.
