Two new businesses open in Woodbridge

Fernandez Autoworkz

Two new businesses have opened in Woodbridge recently: Jon D. Racow, State Farm Insurance and Fernandez Autoworkz.

Jon D. Racow State Farm Insurance just opened in the D'Andrea Plaza on Litchfield Turnpike and Fernandez Autoworkz just opened at 33 Lucy Street in the former M&M Oil Building.

This is Racow's second office -- his first is in Wallingford. He grew up in Woodbridge, attended Beecher Road School and B’nai Jacob. So when he was looking for a second office he was already familiar with Woodbridge and liked the idea of being in the same plaza as Katz's Deli.

Racow offers automobile, homeowners, renters, life, health and business insurance. Anyone who requests an insurance quote from him will get a $10 gift certificate to Katz's Deli, Starbucks or Amazon. No insurance purchase is required. 

 Contact Jon D. Racow at 203-745-0568 or The office is open Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 5 pm. Learn more at

 Glen Fernandez Sr. and Glen Fernandez Jr. recently moved their automotive business to Woodbridge from Beacon Falls. The father and son own and operate the business together. They do sales, service and repair on all cars, trucks and muscle cars. 

Glen Sr. began working on cars at age 9 cleaning parts for his uncle. At 19 he was managing a car repair business and later worked as a mechanic for the State Department of Transportation while fixing cars on the side. The side business took off and eventually he decided to open shop full time.  

“I’ve been in this business for 36 years, and my son is 19,” said Glen Sr. “Eventually he’s going to take over.” 

Fernandez Autoworkz offers quality work at good rates, he says, and they can do pick up and delivery within a 20-minute drive.
