Our roots.

In 2007 Carolyn Coquillette started Luscious Garage, a hybrid specialty shop catering to drivers in tech savvy San Francisco. Her custom online management system proved central to business success, garnering international attention. The software continued to evolve over the years to better meet the needs of Luscious Garage and the other shops that expressed interest in using it.

Today everyone is tech savvy. The trends and success enjoyed by Luscious Garage apply to every shop planning to stay in business and win. Carolyn founded Shop-Ware in 2013 to make the tools that worked for her shop available to all shops worldwide.
