Advanced Auto Care was founded in 1998 by Andy Koontz. Being a lifelong resident of Monroe county, Andy knew the importance of customer service in his community. With that in mind, Advanced Auto Care has always had some of the best business morals in Bloomington.
Starting with humble roots Andy was joined immediately by fellow mechanic and friend Ted Kent. Andy and Ted's commitment to customer service, education, and honesty quickly made Advanced Auto Care outgrow its building. In 2003, Advanced found its new home in our current location. 1077 Air Drive might have lost its road frontage, but allowed for its growth. Word spread quickly about the level of care at Advanced and it steadily grew in size to its current proportions of six employees. Having a great business model allowed Advanced to enjoy its great customers for many years. While Andy loved building Advanced from the ground up, he decided it was time to retire in 2018.
Matt Bozarth, the current owner of Advanced Auto Care, met Andy in 2005. Coming from the parts side of the automotive business, Matt has seen a lot of repair facilities. It was not hard to spot the things that made Advanced so successful: Customer service, transparency, and honesty. To Matt, purchasing Advanced seemed like a natural step forward in his career. He built upon the foundation that Andy laid for Advanced and ran with it by adding more services and increasing technology and employee certifications.
No matter how things change, our community commitment will never waiver. Giving back is also an integral part of who we are- Advanced always looks forward to helping local fundraisers. We have donated to Susie’s Place, Cutters Casino Night, and BHSN Gymnastics to name a few. Matt is looking forward to the next 20 years in business and providing the same level of honesty, transparency, and education our customers have come to expect. Each and every employee at Advanced is focused every day on doing what is right for our customers and our town!
