A full-service auto repair business is expanding into Forks Township, Northampton County, to accommodate its growth.
Partners Dave Fiore and Sherief Elsamra bought the old Forks Diner at 3315 Sullivan Trail for $650,000. Plans, they said, are to convert the 5,000-square-foot property into a 6-bay auto repair shop to be called Your Mechanic PA LLC.
Lehigh Financial Group, LLC in Allentown arranged more than $1 million for the partners to acquire the property and convert it into an auto repair shop.
Fiore and Elsamra had been looking for a second location to accommodate their growing repair business for some time when their real estate agent Kristie Bauder of Iron Valley Real Estate of the Lehigh Valley informed them that the former diner was on the market.
“Because we were doing well in our first location, we wanted to expand our services to Forks Township,” Fiore said.
Fiore and Elsamra opened their first auto repair shop, Wrenchtec at 20 E. Lawn Road in Nazareth, four years ago. They are looking to open the new shop by early spring, they said.
