Hello my name is William Salas but everyone calls me Tico, and I have had the privilege of operating my own auto repair business in Chicago since 1974. I am originally from Costa Rica, and enjoy going back there whenever I can.
In the beginning I had a partner and we built the foundation of our business through hard work, good service and a personal, honest approach to our customers. We became successful and I developed the courage to venture out on my own and opened a shop in 1981 on Belmont and Paulina.
Fortunately, Tico’s developed a solid and growing clientele and therefore we moved into a larger facility at Fullerton and St. Louis in 1985. In 1991 continued growth allowed us to finally purchase the building where we currently operate at 2844 N Kedzie in Chicago.
