Minneapolis—Jason and Erika Zerwas, husband and wife, are celebrating the opening of four CARSTAR locations in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul region. The couple entered the collision repair business more than 20 years ago and recently brought their businesses into CARSTAR.
“Before becoming an owner I was a painter, lead technician and even corporate trainer,” said Jason Zerwas, who co-owns CARSTAR Bloomington North, CARSTAR Northfield Auto Body, CARSTAR Eden Prairie North and CARSTAR New Hope with Erika. “Learning different aspects of the business and trying out various roles helped me grow as a professional as well as the support from an amazing team is how we have been able to grow our business to four facilities.”
Zerwas said he always had a passion for cars, graduating from college with a degree in automotive engineering and then heading right into a repair center to start working.
“With the industry advancing faster than ever, there are more requirements to ensure a repair is done safely for our valued customers and CARSTAR understands this as they prioritize people, processes and technology,” he said. “Most of the staff employed at our four facilities are experienced professionals so to have these added resources to accompany our expert team will only help us continue to grow.”
