What about you?
I grew up in Royse City and Garland.
During high school, I worked in a locally owned and operated Auto Parts Store in Wylie.
After high school, I spent the next 25 years in Automotive based customer service and training.
In late 2013, the opportunity arose for us to purchase a then, struggling, Meteor Hamburgers. I had never really worked in food service before.
I love cars, people, and hamburgers. I knew I could learn the things I would need to know and save Meteor Hamburgers from closing its doors.
Any garages, parts stores, fabrication shops, etc you want to call out specifically?
Meteor Hamburgers – (Address) 620 N. Hwy 78, #627, Wylie,TX 75098 & 1608 E. Beltline Road Richardson, TX 75081

These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do.
