Brian Hogue

Owner / Business Manager / Team Builder

Introduction

Other than 4 years in the Air Force, I’ve been an Ann Arbor / Saline resident since 1971. During my High School years, I had a dream of owning my own auto service business. Eight months after my Air Force tour, I achieved that dream when I opened my Shell “Auto Care” Service Station on the east side of Ann Arbor. In 2002, after 22 years with Shell service stations, I bought the building on E. Hoover Avenue in downtown Ann Arbor and moved my repair business, renaming it Hoover Street Auto Repair, to focus on auto repair in Ann Arbor without the fuel sales business. In 2013 I put a team together to open a second Ann Arbor auto repair shop, Stadium Auto Service. And in 2016, opened the third Ann Arbor auto repair shop, State Street Auto Service.

Experience

  • Owner/Operator providing auto service & repair in Ann Arbor, MI since 1980
  • 2016 - opened State Street Auto Service
  • 2013 - opened Stadium Auto Service
  • 2002 - opened Hoover Street Auto Repair
  • 22 years Shell service station owner/operator
  • US Air Force service

Background

During my free time, I enjoy golf, tennis, water and snow skiing. I’m also a beginner in ballroom dancing and love to sing… not to be confused with a “talent to sing”… however, I do great job with background vocals for familiar songs on the radio.
