Brian Hogue
Owner / Business Manager / Team Builder

During my High School years, I had a dream of owning my own auto service business. Eight months after my Air Force tour, I achieved that dream when I opened my Shell “Auto Care” Service Station on the east side of Ann Arbor. In 2002, after 22 years with Shell service stations, I bought the building on E. Hoover Avenue in downtown Ann Arbor next and moved my repair business to focus on auto repair in Ann Arbor without the fuel sales business. In 2013 I put a team together to open a second Ann Arbor auto repair shop, Stadium Auto Service which specializes in German auto repair service in the Ann Arbor area. In 2016, I opened my third Ann Arbor auto repair shop, State Street Auto Service., which specializes in light-duty and medium-duty truck repair service in the Ann Arbor, MI area. In 2021 State Street Auto Service moved to a much larger facility in Whitmore Lake, MI just 9 miles north of Ann Arbor. During 2021 we also opened our fourth auto repair shop in Ann Arbor, Abbott Street Auto Service, which specializes in Asian auto repair service. Other than 4 years in the Air Force, I’ve been an Ann Arbor / Saline resident since 1971.
