Our history….

Stewart & Sons Auto Detail is more than just a name; it’s an institution inspired by the tremendous work ethic of Michael Stewart’s elders, particularly his late grandfather, Rev. John D. Stewart. Michael’s grandfather began his entrepreneurial career in 1917 by investing in Granite Dells, a small barbecue joint in Prescott, AZ, which he built into a beloved local eatery and dance venue. In 1922, he moved his family to Santa Barbara, CA, where he worked for the Santa Fe Railroad and started successful janitorial and catering businesses in his spare time.


In 1941, he relocated the family business to Bakersfield, CA, where Stewart & Sons Janitor & House Cleaning became a household name. After selling that business, he opened the Stewart Hotel in San Luis Obispo, CA. Eventually, he transitioned to full-time ministry, serving his community until his passing at age 95

Michael Stewart inherited this incredible work ethic, which has fueled his diverse career, including a 10-year stint in the National Football League (7 years with the LA Rams and 3 years with the Miami Dolphins). Post-NFL, Michael worked as a financial advisor for major institutions and remains a dedicated community leader, mentor to at-risk youth, teacher and marriage mentor with his wife, Nina, at Hope’s House Christian Ministries. He is a proud father of six children and four grandchildren.
