Who We Are...
Mac's II is an independent full service auto repair center built for one purpose; to help you with your car. Being an independent shop, we are not a franchise and we are not a dealer. We are a Rochester based family owned auto repair business that has been helping people with their vehicles for over 75 years.
Why is it called Mac's II?
Mac Gan started this business in his parents backyard on Langham Street in 1935. He was 17 years old. Pictured below are Mac’s parents! Today it is owned by his son Ken.
There were a few years in the 1980's when there were two locations. When the second location opened in 1986, it was called Mac's II. Upon the sale of the original shop on Seneca Avenue in 1990, it was decided to continue to call the Brighton location Mac's II. There is only one location even though it is called Mac's II.
In 1993, Ken finally realized the obvious! The acronym MACS represents: Mechanical And Collision Service: A term that has been used in our marketing for years. But Mac is truly his father's name.

Mac's II Owner Ken Gan, and his Dad, Mac
You’ve probably heard by now that there is a shortage of quality technicians to repair your car. They’re leaving the industy because their pay plans don’t work and they can’t make any money.
I’m Ken Gan, owner of Mac’s II Mechanical And Collision Service, and I’d like to tell you how I pay my technicians.
You see, most shops pay by flat rate, which means hours billed, and commission, which means dollars sold. This is a conflict of interest. How can they be doing their customer’s justice when their incentive is to maximize YOUR bill? Mac’s II is different.
Our service technicians are paid only by the hour. No one makes any more or less money by selling additional parts or labor. This philosophy insures that our customers will be sold only the repairs needed and the technician can take the time to do the job properly. It also creates a cooperative and enjoyable atmosphere that is obvious the minute you step through our door.
My people enjoy being here. You’ll enjoy being here.
