Sara White’s Grease Monkey shop has been in her family since the ’90s

Sara was on the NOLN podcast to talk about how she’s running operations.

She has been involved with her family’s Grease Monkey location in Fort Collins, Colorado, for the most of her life. The shop was originally established by her grandfather in 1994. Sara went from helping around the shop as a teen to running the whole operation with support from her family.

White joins the show to talk about how she’s made the family business her own, and what it’s like to have a female-run shop in a mostly male-dominated industry.
