Ric’s Body & Paint, an iconic fixture of the Scottsdale community since 1976, is proud to announce we are celebrating our 40th anniversary this month. What a milestone!
“This is a real achievement for me and for the team here,” said Ric, founder of Ric’s Body & Paint. “When I opened the business, I had no idea of the wonderful 40-year adventure that was ahead of me. I can still picture the key opening the front gate on that first day, and I admit I was scared out of my mind! I had so much responsibility on my shoulders.” After the first month of business went so well, Ric soon realized he was on the right path, and that Ric’s Body & Paint was going to be around for a while.
There are several factors that account for the longevity of this Scottsdale business. The most important comes from Ric himself, and it’s been his guiding principle since day one. “We treat customer cars just like they are our cars, and we’re always straight with them about what’s happening with their vehicle,” he said. “We deal with customers the way we all want to be treated. Our team is never rude and always has a pleasant attitude. We understand that people come to us because they’ve been in an accident or their car is damaged in some way. We help people cope with a stressful situation and get their lives back on track.”
Ric is especially proud of the fact his family has chosen to continue this legacy of exceptional service. “I always wanted my family to be involved in running Ric’s Body & Paint,” he said. “I was blessed they felt the same way. Now, my son Dean takes care of the business. Family is the most important thing in the world!”
