March 2, 2021—A female owner of a Midas location in Chattanooga, Tenn., was recently profiled in the local newspaper, the Chattanooga Times Free Press

Angela Scalla-Johnson has owned the auto repair shop since 2009, taking over for her father. In 2020, Scalla-Johnson’s shop ranked 15th in total sales in Midas’ Southeast region. 

That same year, just nine percent of automotive repair employees were female. Scalla-Johnson doesn’t let that get to her. 

"You'll see women at a front desk, but very few owners," she told the publication. "I've had salesmen come in, introduce themselves and say, 'Can I talk to your husband?' I don't let things like that bother me.

"The last statistic I heard was that around 54 percent of people who bring vehicles in for service are women, so I like to think they'd be comfortable seeing a woman manager in that situation," she added.
