CARSTAR announced the opening of CARSTAR First Choice Auto Body in Los Angeles, Calif.
This is the first CARSTAR location for owner Edwin Khoshabeh, a third-generation auto body repairer who has been in the industry his whole life. Khoshabeh was looking for support so he could focus more on his facility operations, which is why he decided to join CARSTAR.
“My father had an auto body shop, and he taught me how important it is for everyone in the facility to be multi-talented and always be learning,” said Khoshabeh. “Joining CARSTAR gives us access to the learning portal CARSTAR University, connects us with great industry relationships and just the resources so we can continue to grow this business.”
CARSTAR First Choice Auto Body is a 6,500-square-foot facility, outfitted with equipment for every make and model of vehicle. As an I-CAR Gold facility, CARSTAR First Choice Auto Body is part of the small 20% of collision repair centers that have completed the rigorous training requirements to earn I-CAR gold.
“Having our franchise family expand, with owners who value training and certification, further demonstrates our commitment to develop in the right way,” said Dean Fisher, president, CARSTAR. “We are excited to continue growing our footprint in California and are excited for Los Angeles to benefit from these premier collision repair services.”
The team at CARSTAR First Choice Auto Body has worked together for years, the newest employee having a tenure of five years. This close-knit group is excited to be a part of the CARSTAR team and looks forward to support its charity of choice, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as continuing to give back to Los Angeles where they can.
