Business Spotlight: My Car Butler, LLC

Founded in 2018 by Phillip Black, My Car Butler Auto Spa identified a unique niche between conventional paint & body shops and standard auto detailers. Initially establishing itself as a premium auto detailer, the business has evolved into a specialized auto spa focusing on visual automotive reconditioning.

Drawing from Phillip’s rich experience working at his brother’s body shop during his youth, coupled with his educational background in industrial engineering, My Car Butler was born out of a combination of passion for cars and a keen understanding of the industrial process. This expertise enabled Phillip to devise a value-driven approach that distinguishes his business from competitors.

Journey to Success:
In the early days, many might recall My Car Butler’s mobile detailing trailer stationed across various parking lots in Chambersburg. This strategic move was to gain exposure and establish a name in the market.
