The Greater Omaha Chamber has named Don & Ron’s CARSTAR Collision Center as its January 2018 Small Business of the Month in recognition of the shop’s excellent customer service and community involvement.

Don & Ron’s Collision Center has been repairing vehicles for more than 50 years. Two brothers started the business in 1965, and the second generation now carries on the family tradition.

Mark Krzemien (Don’s son) and his cousins Christi Krajeski and Andrea Heig (Ron’s daughters) are the team continuing the family tradition of quality collision repair, great service and support of the local community.

“We help people through some of the tougher times in their life,” Krzemien says. “We want them to know we’re here to help, easing the pain of an auto accident by walking them through every step of the collision repair process.”

The family-owned shop, part of the CARSTAR franchise network, has received many accolades for its work in the Greater Omaha area, including Best of Omaha winner (2016 and 2017), Omaha’s Choice finalist (2016), Best of the Big O first-place winner (2016) and Business of the Year Ralston Chamber of Commerce (2015).

In 2015, the Omaha Chamber of Commerce presented Don & Ron’s with a Milestone Award for achieving 50 years in business. The shop also has earned the BBB Integrity Award on multiple occasions.
