About DC Auto Repair Appleton, WI

On July 7, 2009, Denae and Chad Katalinick officially opened DC Auto Repair. Opening the shop was a long-standing dream for both Denae and Chad to serve the Fox Valley and surrounding communities, with their automotive repair needs.

The big question was, how would we separate ourselves with so many automotive repair facilities in the fox valley?

This was the question that became the center of discussion around our dinner table. The answer we came up with over and over would be this simple. Our grandparents would tell us stories of the old times when they would enjoy the small-town atmosphere that the auto industry provided. This soon went away as the small shops became corporate. That is what we decided we wanted to bring back to the community! A sense of security, trust, and respect that came with the mom and pop shops that were fading.

Our next step was how to create a business that provided both that small-town family relationship along with the ability and knowledge of a corporate dealership. With these business practices, DC has grown from a one-bay shop to a fully equipped stand-alone eight-bay repair facility. Through the years, our hard work and honesty, and a great clientele base have allowed us to grow to what we are today! We could not have accomplished what we set out to do without the blessings from the Lord and the support from our employees, friends, family, and community.
We look forward to the years to come and the new adventures that await us here at DC Auto Repair and Quick Lube.

Thanks to all who have been there for us. We look forward to the future with you and the guests we get to meet along the way!

Sincerely
Chad and Denae Katalinick
