“We’ve been able to grow our business with the assistance of the 1Collision team and appreciate their assistance,” said Barragan. “Kelly Cooper and Joyce Schuenke recently came to our facility for a visit and provided great support and advice.”

From humble beginnings when J & R Auto Body and Paint opened their doors on the corner of Hannalei and Woodland, they have undergone two successful shop expansions, demonstrating their adaptability and commitment to growth.

J & R Auto Body and Paint now occupies a spacious 13,000-square-foot building at 2509 S. Santa Fe Ave in Vista, the former location of Window World. Barragan said the new facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology and resources to ensure that they continue to deliver high-quality collision repair services with even greater efficiency.

The business holds certifications from various auto manufacturers, including Acura, Honda, Nissan, Kia, Hyundai, Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge, and is getting certified with Ford. Additionally, they are working towards becoming Tesla-approved, taking advantage of the increased capacity of their new location.

Barragan stresses the importance of having OEM certifications.

“In a world where vehicle technology is advancing rapidly, it is more important than ever for us to have the tools and training to get vehicles safely back on the road,” she said. “We’re forward-thinkers, not just focused on what’s happening in the industry today, but also looking ahead to the vehicles of tomorrow with our new facility.”

Community involvement is a cornerstone of J & R Auto Body and Paint’s philosophy. J & R Auto Body and Paint actively sponsors various events and organizations throughout Vista, including the Strawberry Festival, scholarship programs, and supports various non-profits. Barragan’s dedication to the community has been recognized with the 2023 Vista Chamber of Commerce Businessperson of the Year award and the 1Collision Community Involvement Award.

“Our team looks forward to welcoming our valued customers and the community to the new location, where we will continue to provide exceptional auto body and collision repair services and support, all while remaining deeply rooted in the community we cherish,” said Barragan.
