Pepe’s Towing Service Inc. is recognized by Hispanic Lifestyle as a company that has Survived and Thrived. Their efforts were celebrated at our 2016 SoCal Business Expo and Conference June 9, 2016 at the Ontario Airport Hotel & Conference Center.
Pepe’s Towing Service was established in March of 1978, by Jose and Delfina Acosta, with one tow truck converted from a standard Ford 350 pick-up truck. In the early days, Pepe’s Towing Service served the community of Los Angeles and quickly earned the reputation of providing prompt and honest service at a reasonable price. As the business grew, Jose Jr. and Manuel followed in their father’s footsteps by taking an interest in the towing business.
In March 1997, Jose Jr. and Manuel became full-time employees bringing renewed energy and fresh ideas. The second Acosta generation developed an ambitious business plan to expand the area they serviced while maintaining the reputation of quality and reliability built with hard work by Jose and Delfina. In 1989, Lorenzo Navarro became part of the Pepe’s team and established himself as an integral part of the company.
Today Pepe’s Towing Service, Inc. employs over 90 employees and owns a fleet of over 70 trucks, from light to super heavy duty, and includes specialized equipment to provide vehicle recovery in a variety of situations. They have yards located in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Their clients include over 20 policing agencies, California Department of Transportation’s Freeway Service Patrol, business accounts and private vehicles owners. With over 100 years of combined towing service behind them, Jose Jr., Manuel and Lorenzo are prepared to continue the service and values established by Jose and Delfina Acosta.
