Chuck Paramo, owner of , aspired to own his own business. His father had that dream too, but sadly was not able to make it happen.
Paramo knew he would make it materialize for both of them.
For more than 10 years, Paramo managed a Grease Monkey store in Riverside before taking the leap and purchasing the franchise Wildomar store on Clinton Keith Road.
The shop has now been open since February 2008, with 15 employees -- five of whom are family members. Anthony Ornelas, 26, is the shop manager.
"We strive for excellent customer service," Paramo said. "We know the reputation of the quick lube industry is negative. We recognize that people can go anywhere to get an oil change and if we don't treat them well, they won't come back. We care about our customers and don't oversell them on products they don't need."
Ricky Wolter, one of the very first customers to come through the doors at the Wildomar Grease Monkey location, said, "I always come here. They have awesome customer service. They go above and beyond. The car wash is great."
Here's what Grease Monkey has to offer:
* Preventative automotive maintenance service
* Factory schedule maintenance service for cars and trucks
* Mileage schedule service
* Car washes
