Speedemissions is a 14-year old company that was among the first to develop and build the emission-test-only store in Atlanta. They’ve grown to 43 location in four major cities: Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City. In 2010, they developed CARbonga, the first iPhone app for consumers to diagnose their own vehicles for emission problems and more. That app was followed up with CARbonga-SRI, a revolutionary iPhone app that provides details about a car’s safety recall status and technical services bulletins. Most recently, they have been piloting an emissions repair model that has lead to re-branding the company with two new brands: Expresso Emissions and Expresso Car Care Café. The names, logo design and store were just introduced in mid- January. In addition, they just signed a joint venture, Retail Vehicle Registration, to provide the consumer with an easy way to renew their vehicle registration without the hassle of a DMV.
