When Robert (Rob) Yousefian decided to set up his own automotive repair shop in Mississauga in 1995, little did he know that it would take him on the journey of a lifetime.
As a youngster growing up in Azerbaijan, Rob had an early introduction to the business of auto repair- being the son of a mechanic. Rob would observe his father’s skill from the sideline with some interest; not sure if he wanted to pursue the car repair business.
Migrating to Canada as a teenager, in a strange new world, barely speaking a stitch of English except, “Hi, how are you” and “I am well”, Rob had to quickly assimilate, learn the language and make important choices for his studies.
After a few years working as a mechanic and immediately after the 1990’s recession, Rob felt the urge to take the plunge and venture out on his own.
