Lakewood, Colorado Ribbon Cutting was a success!

Good afternoon friends of Mission Repair-

It’s Tuesday afternoon, St. Patrick’s Day, and our Ribbon Cutting Event at our new Lakewood, Colorado store was a success. Our team lined up in front of the camera:

And then I used those gigantic scissors to cut the ribbon and we got this action shot:

Laura at the chamber was very accommodating and it’s great to be part of such a HUGE chamber. It’s small businesses working together, and that’s what we’re all about. I’d like to spend more time here in Colorado, but it’s almost time for our trip back to Kansas. Yeah, there’s a bit more “scenery” here in the Centennial State with the gorgeous Rocky Mountains and the unbelievable weather that we’ve had these last few days; but the mothership is calling. Kansas here I come!

Talk to you again from Olathe tomorrow,

Ryan

Mission Repair Express – Indianapolis – COMING SOON!

Hello again everyone, you read that right…

I just posted a blog that I’ll be opening our first Mission Repair Express in Colorado in a few short weeks…the location is perfect, the site is staffed and I’m ready to have a Grand Opening soon.

Now that we’re “locked and loaded” in Lakewood, Colorado (a suburb of Denver), we signed an agreement to open a new site in Indianapolis, Indiana as well!

During the holidays, Indianapolis hosts a slew of fun Holiday themed events including the “Devour Downtown Winterfest”, the “Festival of Trees”, the “Circle of Lights” and the “Christmas at the Zoo”. This is an amazing city that I’ve spent some time in.

In fact, Dan McQuaid, a former Tackle for the Indianapolis Colts (A friend from a “lifetime” ago) retired from the Colts and moved from Indianapolis to Sacramento. I was his moving buddy as we filled up his Ford Bronco and made the trek from Indiana to California in the dead of Winter. This was back in 1990; I was freshly out of High School, and Dan was freshly into retirement. The best part about the trip was that I got to spend some time in the “underbelly” of the Colt’s stadium. Hang out where the players hung out…see the lockers, use the workout room, and see where the future “Hall of Fame” Quarterback Peyton Manning would eventually start playing in 1998.

So, with my personal experiences aside, the more exciting part of this blog is that we will be opening in Indianapolis soon. We are scouting locations, but have a lot of the parts in motion and will be deciding on an address shortly. Once we do, just like our new Denver site, it won’t take long for us to move in.

It’s interesting; we receive a significant amount of repairs mailed in from the Indianapolis region. More so than Colorado, so we will be sharing this info with our Indiana customers because we’ll be “locals”. Thanks for everyone’s patronage and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Thanks for reading…we’re dedicated to making sure that Mission Repair provides the best possible services and rest assured there’s a master plan that goes along with all of our new Mission Repair Express locations, and the competition won’t be able to keep up!

I’ll be back soon, Ryan
