Joey Amodei III, the manager of the Patchogue store, adds that Estrella “brings a smile to my face every day he walks in the door.”

“We can’t thank Cesar enough for his positive attitude and loyalty to The Collision Centers,” the MSO concludes. “He is part of the TCC family and we plan to keep it that way for a very long time. Thank you, Cesar!!”
