In 1999, Audrey and Gerry Meyer started 59 Auto Repair. Plainfield was blooming all around them and they decided it was the perfect place for a family-owned and operated auto repair shop. 59 Auto Repair was named for the road it lives on: route 59. Route 59 used to be known as route 66, and at one point ran from one end of the country to the other. With a rich history, the Meyers believed this was the perfect name for the shop. The Meyers decided it was time to retire in 2006.
This was perfect timing as Rich and Linda Brauer were looking for a shop closer to home. They had lived in Plainfield for 12 years but worked further from home. With a shorter commute in mind, they found 59 Auto Repair and bought it in 2006. 59 Auto Repair is truly family-owned and operated; Linda and Rich’s children Ashley, Josh, and Marisa have all worked at the shop. Ashley and Marisa are currently being trained to take over the family business. Linda’s brother Jim also works as a service advisor, and their nephew Ian is a technician. They have had many family members working at the shop over the years. All the other employees have been with us so long they feel like family. We have created a shop culture that values its employees and that shows how long our team has been with us.
Plainfield is the perfect place for us. We love how our community comes together to take care of each other and how well everyone seems to know each other. This has been our home for a long time and we are proud to have a business in a town that has family values and where everyone is friendly. Owners of 59 Auto Repair, Rich and Linda Brauer, are active members of the Plainfield community. 59 Auto Repair collects donations for the Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry. As members of the Plainfield Rotary Club, they help with events such as Ducks 4 Bucks at the Plainfield Fest, the Mayor’s Golf Outing, and Angels on Assignment. Rich is also a proud member of the Plainfield Lion’s Club.
