The Fogarty family has staked their name and reputation on unbeatable quality automotive repair and tire sales and service that focuses on our customers' needs.
“We have provided the most advanced automotive and tire technology in the area since 1988.”
Tim and Patsy Fogarty started Fogarty's Garage after purchasing a shell of a building. Working very hard to clean up the grounds and rebuilding the entire inside from concrete floors to ceiling they opened their doors on June 1, 1988. Before they even had the doors officially opened they had customers coming in wondering if they were open enough to fix a tire or do a sm all engine repair. Of course, they obliged, and business was off and running with Patsy in the office and Tim and two employees in the shop.
Fogarty's Garage was Pontiac's first "no appointment" quick oil change station, with an in-ground pit, fitting two vehicles on it at a time.
All you had to do was bring your car in and in a matter of minutes, you’d get a quality oil change and complimentary vehicle inspection. Our technicians made it a point to look for anything that might be getting ready to break or anything that might be leaking. They would check everything including all lights, fluid levels, tire wear and pressure, belts and hoses, air cleaners, etc., all as a part of the routine oil change, including a free washer fluid refill.
Over the years, Fogarty’s Garage earned a reputation for quality auto/truck maintenance, and proved to be a friend to the farming community with “ in the field” tire service and towing.
Tim and Patsy Fogarty hold one of the many trophies to be given away at thte Antique and Classic Car Show held Saturday as part of Hang Loose. Fogarty’s Garage, owned by the couple, sponsors all 95 class trophies for the show. With the Fogarty’s are Chris Matich, far left, and Mike LoPiccalo, far right.
In April of 2022, Fogarty’s Garage was acquired by Cassidy Tire & Service, another family-owned company
with corporate offices in Addison, IL and 16 other Chicagoland locations.
Not coincidentally, Cassidy Tire & Service had been a supplier of Fogarty’s since the day they opened. When Tim and Patsy Fogarty after 36 years of running the business, decided it was time to hand over the reins, they looked for someone who knew the business and who would continue to deliver the service that Fogarty’s was known for. Cassidy Tire & Service, family owned and operated for 4 generations, was the perfect fit. Cassidy’s customer service standards , consistent with Fogarty’s, puts the customer first, and treats customers like family. With the acquisition, the Fogarty family knows that the business that still bears their name, is in good hands.
