Owner Rick Koebernick did not intend to go into the family business, but couldn't be happier that he did. While his family's legacy is well-established in the auto repair industry, Rick's focus was on business development. After earning his degree in business marketing at Eastern Illinois University, Rick discovered that even auto repair enterprises need sound business plans and long term development ideas. Rick is proud to work closely with the dedicated staff at K Auto Repair and enjoys meeting customers on a regular basis. His business acumen allows him to look down the road, so to speak, and see what trends, technologies and service initiatives are needed to keep K Auto Repair ahead of the competition. Along with his wife Kari, Rick has raised twins Bailey and Tyler. While they are well on their way to outstanding careers of their own, they still enjoy annual family trips to Disney World. "The staff and I are dedicated to making sure that every K Auto Repair customer is fully satisfied. We take great pride in our work, our commitment to service, and we look forward to serving our customers for years to come."
