John and Colette Modesti – Owners
The history of Modesti’s started back in 1972 when John opened up his first auto repair and performance products shop. By 1978, the shop became incorporated and the performance products portion was fazed out. 1996 started their expansion process and, after a few years, the location of present-day Modesti’s was purchased and the rest they say, is history.
