Richard Griot, the founder of Griot's Garage, grew up in California, an epicenter for all things automotive. A car enthusiast from the start, Richard channeled his passion into creating exceptional car care products, detailing tools, and garage accessories - anything to help you "Have fun in your garage!"
Richard Griot founded Griot's Garage in 1991 with their first 16-page catalogue, mailed from their Vista, California warehouse. There are many catalogue companies and many car care companies, but what Richard had going for him was a commitment to quality and continuous improvement. Never content with "good enough", Griot's Garage develops new products every year that solve a detailing problem, make a detailing task easier or just make cars look better.
