In 2017, Jonathon Peloquin and his family packed up and moved to the green and lush Pacific Northwest. They had visited close family friends who lived up here many times over the past decade and decided it was time to make a change. They made their home in Tigard.
All of this change included the family business; the shop. You see, Jonathon, who was once an architecture student, is a third generation mechanic. He ran a successful auto repair shop for twelve years. He handed the keys over to his trusted apprentice when they decided to relocate.
Jonathon’s wife, Heather, and their three children, Caleb, Zach and Felicity, share a love of community. Heather taught first grade in Tualatin for two years, and is gearing up to begin teaching Kindergarten in our neighboring city of Sherwood this Fall. She and her daughter continue to be involved in Girl Scouts where Heather is a leader, and they love all of the outdoor activities the Northwest has to offer. This crew loves the people, nature and weather of the Pacific Northwest.
Now that they’ve settled in, the Peloquin’s are at it again and have decided to open up Family Auto Repair in Tualatin. You may be wondering – why open a business now? They believe their shop will bless the community during these difficult times. They aim to be the shop everyone can trust. With so much uncertainty, they felt like people needed the service they provide right now more than ever.
Since being a mechanic runs in this family’s veins, maybe the future of this shop is in the hands of the Peloquin kids! We wish this local, family-owned business a long and prosperous future right here in Tualatin for generations to come.
