Peter Sosi’s Autocare Mobile Services

The Widener University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and entrepreneur Peter Sosi, of Swarthmore, will host a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Sosi’s new business, Autocare Mobile Services, on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 3 PM.

The ribbon-cutting will take place at Widener in the Atrium of the Leslie C. Quick Center located at 1304 Walnut Street in Chester. Sosi, a retired major from the Ghana Armed Forces with more than 17 years of service, has pulled from his experience servicing the army’s heavy duty armored vehicles, trucks, buses, and cars into a small business operating out of Delaware County.

With the help of the Widener SBDC and seniors in a Widener School of Business Administration capstone course, Sosi is ready to officially launch Autocare Mobile Services, which provides customers with oil changes, car washes, detailing, and other accessory services at their preferred location and convenience.
