About Us

Welcome to Francen & Son Foreign Car Repair Specialist, a trusted family-owned and operated shop dedicated to providing exceptional service. Led by Kevin, our passion for motorized vehicles runs deep. From tinkering with lawnmowers and minibikes as a child to transforming VW bugs into dune buggies with his father, Kevin’s love for cars grew immensely. At 17, he began his apprenticeship at a foreign car shop, embarking on an exciting journey with unfamiliar vehicles. Working alongside his mentor, Mario, for a decade, Kevin honed his skills and knowledge.

On June 11, 1989, Kevin fulfilled his dream by opening his own shop, coinciding with his son’s birthday. Over the past 27 years, Kevin has nurtured a team of skilled technicians with a personalized and hands-on approach. His son joined the business at 16 and remains an invaluable part of the team. Francen & Son Foreign Car Repair Specialist is proud to be a first-generation, family-run establishment. With Kevin at 65 and Kevin Jr. at 37, we combine experience and expertise to ensure top-notch service. We also have another highly skilled technician who has been with us for 15 years, contributing to our reputation for excellence.
