Pimp My Ride - West Coast Customs - Netflix

West Coast Customs (abbreviated by the company as WCC) is an automobile repair shop focusing on the customization of vehicles. It was started by co-founders Ryan Friedlinghaus and Quinton Dodson in 1994. According to Friedlinghaus, he began the business with a $5000 loan from his grandfather, but other sources claim that he raised the seed money for the business while working at his father's liquor store. Owing to the patronage of celebrities such as Shaquille O'Neal, and Sean Combs, along with appearances in the reality television programs Pimp My Ride and Street Customs, the company has gained a high degree of notoriety and has become a multimillion-dollar business. Besides celebrities, West Coast Customs has also created vehicles for global brands such as Virgin, Nintendo, and Microsoft. It is frequently characterized as one of the best custom car shops in the United States. However, the company has also at times been accused of missing deadlines, using aggressive sales tactics, and producing low quality and potentially unsafe customized vehicles. Some observers and past employees have also criticized the company's employment practices. It has had some success franchising outside of the United States with open franchises in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Shanghai, China (as Chinese: 西海岸汽车定制). Other franchises, however, such as the one in Berlin, Germany, closed shortly after opening due to becoming insolvent. After a long history of different locations within the U.S. state of California, its current flagship and largest facility of 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) is headquartered in Burbank, California.

The company has moved several times in its history, each time to larger spaces. According to Friedlinghaus, the first shop was in Laguna Niguel, Orange County, California, after which it moved to Compton, Los Angeles, in 1998. In 2000, it moved again to a location on Olive Street in Inglewood. After the first season of Pimp My Ride, the company moved yet another time to a larger location near Los Angeles International Airport that had a room specifically for the filming. After Pimp My Ride left the company, it moved to a location in Corona, California, in preparation for the Street Customs television show. During filming of Season 5 Episode 12 “WCC's New Zip Part 1” of West Coast Customs, Friedlinghaus began moving the shop to its current location, a 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) auto shop on West Empire Avenue in Burbank, Los Angeles County, California. The grand opening of the new facility occurred in January 2015.
