"Our brand managers will connect with the crowd for new product ideas, feedback and ways to improve our existing lines. Having instant access to an educated and passionate community of consumers is invaluable."

Rusto Garage members can win prizes and gift cards through challenges, raffles and activities. New members will also receive a welcome gift.
