With all of the construction being done on the highways in Chicago, local Naperville businessman Chris Gogola has literally beaten the odds and traffic to succeed in the limousine business with his company, Action Limo.
"I couldn't worry about the price of gas. I had a vision. And I chased it. I am still chasing it today," said Chris on the back patio of his home in Naperville one sunny afternoon.
Chris's home, in the Springhill Subdivision located in Naperville Illinois, is more than just where he keeps his expanding family. It is also where he maintains his office, his growing fleet of cars, and his two dogs, Bella and Buddy.
His wife Julie, pregnant with their second child due in late October, helps in the office when she can. Most of her time, though, is chasing her young son, 14 month old Chase Gogola.
Chris recently added his sister Laura to his staff. "She helps in the office and gives Julie a badly needed break," says Chris.
Along with his office staff, Chris currently employs two full time drivers, along with several part-timers for big events like "Weddings, bachelor parties, all sorts of big events. You name it," says Chris.
Action Limo, which started just over one year ago, has expanded from one "Luxury Sedan" to a full fleet of three strech limos, two sedans, and his newest addition, the Lincoln Navigator.
"It's the hottest car," says Chris. "A lot of these guys have done the stretch thing...They are ready to try something new."
Either way, Chris and Action Limo have been busy with everything from "airport runs...my bread and butter" to "concerts, ballgames, weddings, bachelor parties. You name it we do it."
"My average customer has very high expectations. They expect the best. I try to deliver."
