A Magnolia man has turned a side job for supplemental income into a thriving business.
Leonard Thompson of Magnolia founded his business Triple T Auto in 1981. Thompson said he worked as a mechanic at a local car dealership and started Triple T Auto as a “side job” on the nights and weekends.
“I started the business in a two car garage with my brother-in-law Norman Stilts,” Thompson said. “As time went on and the business continued to grow, we outgrew that area and we now have a five car garage.”
