How R & L Service Center Got Its Start

Though Russell Lewis is currently at the helm, his grandfather and great-grandfather established the company in 1962. Russell's dad Terry Lewis grew up at the family owned business. At the age of eight, Terry loved spending time at R&L. He spent most of his free time after school pumping gas, washing windows, checking tires and learning the family business from the ground up. Terry and his wife Frances later took over the company and continued their devotion to serving the community. Terry has now passed the torch to his son Russell who also grew up as part of the family business. Following his high school graduation, Russell and his wife Ana relocated to Phoenix. It was here where he acquired a degree in automotive repair. Nearly a decade later, Russell began overseeing the operations at R & L Service Center. He proved so capable in this position that he was later promoted to copartner alongside his parents. Since then, Russell and his wife Ana have continued to set R & L Service Center up for enduring success.
