Hans Foreign Auto & Truck Parts has been in its current, Elk River, MN location since 2001. John moved it to this location after the original yard was closed down in Osseo, MN to make room for the city to grow. John and his wife Debbie owned and worked at the yard with only two employees for those 16 years. They decided in the spring of 2016 that it may be time to retire and sell the yard. This is where new owners Suzanne and Bryan stepped in. Suzanne’s brother frequented the yard buying parts for his cars. He leaned that John and Debbie were considering selling the yard and let them know right away.
In August 2016 the sale was complete and the new owners took over. They had formed a great relationship with John and Debbie throughout the whole buying/selling process and were very excited that John agreed to stay on and mentor Bryan as he begins this new venture.
Bryan has been into cars his whole life. He sold auto parts at a local Big Wheel Rossi throughout highschool before heading to Wyo Tech to become a certified mechanic. After a few years as an auto mechanic he decided to get back to selling parts. He worked at Morries Hyundai selling auto parts for 13 years. At Hyundai he had the opportunity to work with some of the big local yards as he bought parts for the used cars at Morries.
In his spare time Bryan has several classic vehicles he is always working on and he has made countless trips to the various junk yards in the area gathering needed parts. He talked for years about someday owning his own yard. When the opportunity to purchase Hans became available he knew he had to pursue it.
He is looking forward to meeting all the wonderful people who already come to Hans for all their foreign car needs and is eager to bring new business to the yard with new ideas and plans..
