09 Feb February Detailer Spotlight – Daddy O’s Detail Shop
We’re headed down to SoCal for February’s Detailer Spotlight! After years of working in the industry doing car washes and polishes on the side, Gary’s friends that he worked with said that he should open up his own shop. So along with his 21 year-old son, Compte opened up Daddy O’s Detail Shop out of his garage. It wasn’t long before Daddy O’s expanded and had its own shop and Gary was passing on all of his knowledge to his son. The name “Daddy O’s” comes from Gary’s father, Orin, who everyone called Daddy O or Grandpa O. The Daddy O’s logo is a re-imaging of Orin’s printing company logo! We’re very excited to have Daddy O’s Detail Shop coating vehicles with DuraSlic in Corona and Southern California!
