Parish Tanner has every right to be proud of his business, Ocala Car Audio. Mobile Electronics Magazine recently named it one of the Top 50 Retailers in the United States—for the 6th year in a row.
“But I am most proud of the ability to help others,” he says. “I enjoy passing on what I know to those who are just learning and creating an environment that allows us to employ young staff and help them reach their potential.”
Although its core business is car audio, including stereos, speakers, backup cameras, navigation and rear-seat entertainment, Ocala Car Audio also offers window tinting and paint protection as well as Smart Start DUI Ignition Interlock devices.
And the business’s customer service motto? Well let’s just say it comes with a family emphasis.
“We use a ‘Hi Mom’ approach to business. We believe that each client is entitled to the same respect we give our own mothers.”
One of his favorite pastimes is to hop on the Harley with his wife, Chona. “There is something about having her close to me, wind blowing on us with nowhere to go other than just being together enjoying nature and the ride.”
