SHEBOYGAN — When the Wonder Bread/Hostess store closed it’s doors this past year, it was opportunity knocking for Chad Joosse and Nick Bollenbacher.
The co-owners and operators of Arrow Transmission and Towing formerly located in rural Sheboygan Falls were quick to acquire the facility located at 1923 Erie Avenue.
With the fast-growing business needing more functioning space and visibility to the public, a month after completely renovating the interior, they have moved their operations to the Erie Avenue location in Sheboygan.
“We now have twice the square footage from the Highway 32 location with easier access to the community,” said Joosse who worked around the clock to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere to the reception area.
In business since 1999 Arrow has become the largest independent transmission repair shop in the county offering quality professional services, 24 hour towing and recovery, transfercase rebuilds, four by four repair and roadside service. Interstate Batteries are also available for purchase.
The shop has added one new hoist and three more are arriving. Four tow trucks are on call. Arrow has four employees including Joosse.
In 2010, Arrow Towing was awarded the Sheboygan County contract for Law Enforcement (Sheriff Department) serving the eastern half of the county.
“We were basically unknown.We have seen more business and foot traffic since re-locating. The general public is asking questions” said Joosse.
“The name to remember when you need help is Arrow” asserted Joosse. They also offer promotional materials such as calendars. To the first 100 customers a Hostess Twinkie is awarded.
