Best Automotive Service Center: Big Ed's
For a four-year streak, Ed Kloesel, owner of Big Ed's on North Main Street, has swept the title of Victoria's best automotive service center.
"I've got good workers, good friends in the business and very good customers," Kloesel said. "I've been truly blessed."
Kloesel joined the mechanic trade in 1976 and opened this business in 1988.
"Things have changed a lot since I started," he said. "Experience comes from working with cars and the repetition of doing it over and over."
Kloesel said he stays within his customer's budgets.
"You don't go out of their means; they know what they can and can't spend," Kloesel said. "I try to fix their car within their means."
