Entwistle's Garage opened in 1947 as a gas station and auto repair shop with a mom-and-pop store called Whistle Stop. Charlie Entwistle, Sr. had returned from the war and, not wanting to work in a factory, built the two-bay shop with a “pit” for oil changes and a towing service. The Entwistle family has provided quality automotive services to the community of Leicester ever since, now offering auto repairs, preventive maintenance services, custom exhaust work, auto body repairs, 24/7 towing, and more.
Our auto repair shop is different than many automotive service providers in the Leicester area in that we’ve been here for 70+ years, and we’re family-owned and operated. We’re also small enough to be personal with all our customers, yet large enough to handle all your vehicle needs, from oil changes to collision repair to modern computer diagnostics. Our technicians are ASE certified, and many of our team members have been with us for 10 to 20 years. The continuity and longevity on display at our shop are testament to our commitment to excellence and serving our customers well.
“I began pumping gas for my dad at age 13, and I thought it was the greatest thing on earth—having a job and being able to work with my dad. I worked part time through high school and through my two years at Becker College. I graduated with an associate’s degree in liberal arts, but had no idea what I wanted to do if I went further with my education. So, I began my fulltime career with Entwistle's Garage, eventually becoming manager, then owner.
Today, I am an ASE Master-certified technician and L1 technician, a licensed auto body damage appraiser, and a graduate of Management Success!, the auto repair industry’s leading training organization. My goal is for Entwistle’s Garage to evolve with automotive technology and our customers’ auto service needs. Thank you, Leicester, for your loyalty and support over the years. May our family continue to serve you well!”
