Route 54 AutoWorx has a new home, its third as it has continued to grow in its short year and a half in business.

The company, which offers full-service automotive repair, now is in 8,000 square feet of the former Priority Motorsports space at 5817 E. Kellogg.

“We have the west third of the building,” says CEO Dale Williams.

There’s also room to expand.

“We’re hoping to expand into the other areas later,” Williams says. “Hopefully we can grow.”

He says there’s a chance the business will lose some customers who don’t know where it went, but he says the high-traffic area should bring new customers as well.

Reddi Industries owns the building, which is on Reddi’s larger campus along Kellogg.

Williams says the Reddi space is ideal because of its location, size and expansion possibilities. Also, it’s on Kellogg, so the Route 54 name still makes sense.

“And we’re right next to Range 54,” Williams says. “We went and had a talk with them and told them we weren’t trying to get a ride on their name.”

When Route 54 AutoWorx opened in early 2016, it was known as Evolution AutoWorx. The name changed with the first move to Kellogg.

Williams says the new Kellogg address will be a long-term one for the company.

“We’re excited about being in the new location.”
