Sallas Auto Repair Begins
Sallas Auto Repair was founded in September 1993 with a passion to repair vehicles the "right" way, save customers money, and encourage safe driving. The business began as a small, two-bay shop as Nick Sallas and his mom helped run the show. As customers began to realize the value, expertise and commitment to employing the highest-trained technicians, Sallas Auto Repair began to grow. Nick's wife, Carla, joined the team in 1998 and helped bridge the gaps of administration and production, which helped boom the business. Between management classes, adding Carla, and loyal and committed customers, Sallas Auto Repair grew. Today, what started as a two-bay shop has grown into a repair shop in Kansas City with 13 service bays and in 2005 we added the Overland Park store that has 4 bays, a total of 21 total employees.
About Nick & Carla Sallas
This husband-and-wife team knows how to run an auto repair shop! They combine their skills and passions to run a successful auto repair shop, with two locations in the Kansas City area, helping serve thousands of customers.
Nick Sallas is a "Master Certified" technician, meaning that he is certified in every area of the ASE program. Nick has spent decades working on vehicles. He's worked for General Motors, Honda (Nick was trained in the company's Chicago location), and Goodyear. While he was at Goodyear for 10 years, he went through all of their training programs and their "Highest Driveability" program in Sacramento, CA. Nick is familiar with the latest vehicle technologies and can fix any problem on any car.
Carla Sallas helps oversee all of the administration for Sallas Auto Repair. She manages the marketing, financial and human resources for the company. She helps keep all of the balls in the air, especially when it comes to shop certifications. Carla ensures that Sallas Auto Repair remains a member of the ASA (Automotive Service Association) in Kansas City and one of the few facilities to qualify as an approved repair facility by the AAA (American Automobile Association).
The Sallases are committed to training. Not only do they offer the highest training available for all of their technicians, but they've also been extensively trained themselves in business development and growth. The commitment to invest their profits back into the business through training is one of the most distinctive features of Sallas Auto Repair.
While they're not at the shop, Nick & Carla enjoy spending time with their two children through family activities. They enjoy watching their girls play basketball and soccer. They're committed to being involved in the community, and serve on their children's school planning committees.
