In its 40-year history, B & B Foreign Car Care has been owned and operated by three families, each carrying forward the traditions of the other and adding their own automotive expertise to the business. The original owners, the Means family, established Bug & Buggy on Coombs Street in Napa, and expanded to 1750 Tanen Street in 1978. The Means eventually sold the shop to the Cole family, who updated the name to B & B Foreign Car Repair, as they worked on all import vehicles. Thirty years down the road, we, the Correa family, bought the business, adding R & C Automotive LLC to the name and domestic vehicles and motor homes to the shop roster.
We’re a unique auto repair shop, even among family-owned and operated shops, because three women are at the helm of our business. You see, our owner, Ron, encouraged his daughters to join the automotive industry, and now dad and daughters manage the shop together. As a female-led business, it means a lot to us to run an honest, transparent auto repair shop, where people aren’t intimidated or afraid to ask questions. We believe part of our job is to help drivers understand their cars.
"My girls are new to the auto repair business, but with my help, we will lead the general repair industry in Napa to become more open to women's concerns. We have toys for children to play with while mom talks to us about her auto repairs. We have a comfortable recliner for customers to doze off in while they wait for their oil changes, and we have preventive maintenance pamphlets along with other reading material for our customers to become more aware of their vehicle needs."
—Ron Correa, Owner
