About Pete's Auto Repair Inc. Appleton, WI

Today, our team provides complete automotive services for domestic and foreign vehicles.

About Pete’s Auto Repair And Sales

If you’re a longtime Appleton area resident, you might remember Jerry’s Service from the 1950s. At age 18, Pete Berken started working for Jerry to learn the business. In 1989, the shop’s name was officially changed to Pete’s Auto Repair and Sales. During his many years in the automotive service industry, Pete created a trustworthy shop atmosphere. Bob Fuller started working with Pete as the Service Manager in 2005, and co-owner in 2011-2014. When Pete retired in January 2015, Bob took over the role as sole owner, and the torch was passed once again. The transition was seamless due to our consistent team of service writers and technicians, and the strong vision of leadership.
