Our History

The Auto Shop is a family business, founded and managed by Jerry Kezhaya since 1981. Jerry’s experience and willingness to help began as a boy in his father’s garage in Detroit, Michigan.

Jerry arrived in Plano in 1980, continuing his apprenticeship with local dealerships before setting up his own shop. The Auto Shop was actually started when Jerry began repairing cars in his driveway at home in January 1981! The Auto Shop was officially opened for business in 1983 with a single employee, and leased about 3,500 square feet when the city sent a letter stating that there was a zoning violation in effect by having a business in a residential area.

It wasn’t long before more space was needed, so The Auto Shop moved to a 12,000-square-foot space along Central Expressway.

Loyal customers soon followed The Auto Shop again – this time to the corner of Summit Avenue and Jupiter Road. It wasn’t long until, The Auto Shop grew to big for the15,400-square-foot building.

The most recent move finds The Auto Shop located on the Southeast corner of Jupiter Road and Plano Parkway. The current, 35,222 square-foot facility houses 63 work bays, an in-house parts department, a customer lounge, a research room, a break room with a kitchen, an accounting office and the newest and latest equipment to make sure that we are:
