About Us

Joe Riscica: The Proud Founder Of Joe Riscica’s Auto Repairs

From a young age, working at his uncle’s gas station, Joe realized his passion for cars. He began working at dealerships, honing his mechanical skills along the way. After amassing considerable experience and ASE certifications, Joe decided to branch out on his own. Joe’s philosophy has always been to work with integrity and honesty above all else. Joe knew he could grow a lasting reputable auto repair business from the ground up. With his expertise as an auto technician, his tireless work ethic and his “put customers first” mindset it only made sense for Joe to establish an auto repair facility of his own. In 1982, he did just that.

In the years since the business has grown and expanded to it’s current location and although the automotive industry and technology of auto repairs has changed and evolved one thing remains steady at Joe Riscica’s Auto Repairs, that is the commitment to honesty and excellence in their work.

In addition to providing exceptional auto repairs, Joe is also heavily involved in the community. In fact, he is a member of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce and Community Association. Joe himself is a supporter of hospice work and a contributor to the local church pantry. Joe Riscica’s Auto Repairs has long been a sponsor of town and school sports teams as well.

    Joe Riscica Sr.Founder
    Joe, a Blue Seal ASE-Certified Auto Technician, started working at his uncle’s gas station when he was very young. He grew up around cars, and always wanted to figure things out. Eventually, he went to work in a dealership, and then another and then another, figuring out along the way that he needed to start his own repair shop business, so that he could treat customers the way they deserved to be treated. While he loved working in the field, he knew there was so much more he could learn and do, both professionally and personally. In the community, Joe is a baseball sponsor for Little League, a contributor to the Food Pantry at the local church, and a proud and active supporter of hospice work.

    Matt McAuleyService Writer

    Growing up interest in cars, I began to work at a local repair shop assisting the technicians and growing my skills at the age of 15, After six years, I grew myself into a honest/reliable technician. After the business closed, I completed my bachelors degree in business. Then I started a business locally with a partner in the automotive industry for two years. Then, I worked as a service advisor to both commercial fleet accounts and retail customers for 7 years. Wanting a job closer to home to have more time with my family, I stumbled upon Joe Riscica's ad for a service writer. After applying and meeting with Joe and his father Joe Sr, I realized this is a shop I could make a home in.
