This week, it won the North Ridgeville (OH) Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Business of the Year. has the story of the local, family-run business that has found a way to succeed. Brothers Tim and Del Sherman, who are treasurer and vice president, accepted the award. Their mother, Deborah, is the president. Del’s wife handles the concession stand.

“We’ve been around for a long time, and it’s because of our community we stick around,” Del said.

Chamber CEO Dayle Noll praised the Aut-O-Rama’s local involvement and noted that it draws customers into the area. “Certainly with Aut-O-Rama being the only drive-in on the whole West Side of Cleveland and being located in North Ridgeville, they do a great job of bringing people to the city,” Noll said.
