The luxury car services were kick started in Jasper. Garrett Cooper owns the Redstone Car Service LLC. He says people are surprised when his Mercedes stops by to pick them up, especially when most of them expect a yellow taxi. He added that they are available 24/7, and the taxi ride is safe and comfortable. Cooper’s vision is to offer a luxury ride to his customers. It is a startup service in Dubois County. The color red was chosen as a symbol of energy and excitement. He adds the color is associated with luxury. Redstone is related to the color of his hometown, Colo.
Cooper is an electrical engineer and lives in Dubios County. He has been surveying for over four years in the Dubios County region and found out that there is no 24-hour car service. He traveled to and from between Dubois County and Colorado and the idea struck him instantly. Later when he moved to the County, he noticed the need for upscale car service. The idea stuck for nearly four years. Though, the opportunity to setup the service came up recently. He found out a Mercedes-Benz E350.
With his immense experience with cars, it was easier for Copper to take up this venture. He worked as a mechanic for seven years and later went to the Colorado State University, Fort Collins. He completed his degree in electrical engineering. To operate his service, he applied to the State of Indiana.
