Frank Warrens Automotive

Frank Warren logoFrank Warrens Automotive Service, an independent automotive mechanical repair business, was founded in November 1945 by Frank A. Warrens(Sr.) and located on SW 18th and Taylor Streets.

Frank Sr. was joined by son, Frank R. Warrens (Jr.) in 1961 and who became a partner in the business at that time. In 1966 the business was relocated to NW 21st & Kearney until 1980 when it was again relocated to the present address just off West Burnside Street across 20th Avenue from the Stadium Fred Meyer Store.

Coincidentally, in the 1930’s, Frank Warrens Sr. and his brother Holt Warrens worked together at H. W. Warrens Co., an automotive repair service, which was located on 20th Place on the west side of the same Fred Meyer store. After WW II, Frank Sr. opened his own shop on SW Taylor and his brother Holt constructed the building for his shop which is now the home
of Frank Warrens Automotive Service.

I spent a number of months with brakes that were going bad. When I noticed the squeaking was getting really bad, I knew I had to get them taken care of right away. I called Frank Warren's Automotive and they were so wonderful. They got me an appointment right away. When I dropped my car off they went through a thorough inspection of my car and went above and beyond what was asked, taking care of all of the systems that needed attention. They replaced my front brake pads and ensured that all else was good to go. I knew they were be honest with me and truly looking out for my best interest. I would recommend Frank Warren's Automotive highly to anyone needing work done on their car. Thank you to the entire staff at Frank Warrens!
