Case Studies

The Focus Advisors team is fortunate to work with excellent clients. Hear from some of them about their experiences – in their own words – here.

Vinart Collision Center

Andrew Wright, Managing Partner at Vinart Dealerships, had successfully built a thriving automotive enterprise with five locations including a free-standing 40,000 square foot body shop. Managing the body shop alongside multiple remodeling projects and ongoing acquisitions was stretching his resources thin.

Able Body Shop

Able Body Shop was started in 2002 by Ryan Cropper, with the purchase of a shop in downtown Anchorage. Over the next 18 years, Ryan expanded the business — strategically opening two larger shops, aligning Able with the burgeoning needs of the Anchorage market.

Mills Body Shops

Mills Body Shops was founded in 1955 by the Mills family, before being purchased by Don Decker Sr. and Jack Vickery in 1977. Second-generation operators Don Jr. and Britt Decker then acquired the company from their father, growing it to four locations and one of the most well-respected operations in southern Indiana. While the business was doing well, the tides of the industry were turning — and Don and Britt had a decision to make.

Quanz Auto Body

Brothers Adam, Daniel, and Andrew Quanz bought out their father’s interest in the family body shop and quickly grew it to four locations — the second largest MSO in New Mexico. With more than 20% annual growth, the business needed more space and more capital.
