Jerry and Thiry Minor started Jerry’s of Elk River in January of 1973 out of their home and garage. In August of 1973 they moved into a building on Railroad Drive next to the Lumber Yard in Elk River. Three years later the business moved out onto Hwy 10, where it is currently located.
Jerry Minor was a manufacturing engineer for 10 years before starting his business. Cars were always his hobby and passion. He was able to take something he loved doing and turn it into his own business.
