Mike Lindquist, owner of Wilton Auto & Tire, will tell Kiwanians how he turned a failing gas station into a successful auto repair business in his 21 years in Wilton. He is the Kiwanis Club’s guest speaker at its luncheon meeting on Wednesday, May 10.
Wilton Auto and Tire Center recently moved into a new, eight-bay operation in the former CL&P maintenance facility on Route 7 in North Wilton. Mike still owns and operates the Shell station in the center of town. How Shell became the fourth brand under Mike's ownership at that location is a fascinating story of what it takes for an entrepreneur to succeed in Connecticut.
