Hi from Marietta, GA!

Recommended Posts

I am Ben Davis, owner of Davis Performance in Marietta, GA. I have been in business since June 1st 2013 and have had a very positive experience so far. My background is as a technician for 17 years, which progressed into becoming a master technician and learning the various aspects of the business. I spent 2 years as a service manager and handled (what I thought was) everything in the shop from inventory to closing out at the end of the day. As an owner I have found that I absolutely did not handle everything and my original business model as a one man show is not the most efficient way to get things done. As a result, I have now hired one technician, have a technician that was working part-time for me starting full time in a couple of weeks, and am contemplating hiring a service writer so I can focus on being an owner and growing the business. My shop is not located on a main road but is in the middle of several main roads so it is not much of a hassle to get here, however all of my advertising is word of mouth and craigslist. I have been reading the forums here on my kindle at night and have gotten a lot of great knowledge and advice. I am excited to be a part of this community and look forward to expanding my knowledge even further.
