Andrew's story

My love for cars began at the age of 5 watching shows like Dukes of Hazard and Knight Rider. My adolescence years consisted of Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby and Radio Controlled cars. By the age of 22, I was Drag Racing at the local Dragway every opportunity I got. Previously I attempted to start this business many years ago in my early 20s with not much knowledge in owning a business. Since then, I have studied and researched how to become a successful entrepreneur. I gained valuable customer experience being a valet, auto repair shop assistant, and customer service representative. Today I am a full time UAW Union Chairperson and a student in the Mike Illich School of Business at Wayne State University. Skills gained include: business funding, management, marketing, and a host of other critical aspects of owning a business. Thinking forward about creating a customer pool for Rhino Dyno, LLC, I'm also a independent retailer of race fuel. I took this savvy approach to began networking with future customers and referral sources. My goal is continue to be a reputable asset to the automotive community and be in a position to help other new business though the fruits of my labor and experiences.
