In 1987, Royal Automotive was established and founded by Mr. Kap Shin, a South Korean immigrant. With only 4 bays in a small shop, Mr. Shin’s goal was simple: to offer High-Quality services quickly and at a great price. 

After word got out about Royal’s quality work and service, more and more vehicle owners sought after Mr. Shin’s shop, which grew to a larger location near Northpark University in 1989 (Kedzie & Foster). In 1995, a fire ignited by an adjacent building forced Royal to move (Kedzie & Bryn Mawr). 

In 1998, Northside Preparatory School claimed the city blocks, forcing Royal to move once again. Now serving the greater Edgebrook/Jefferson Park District, Royal has made a permanent home just off the corner of Elston & Central Ave. 

Once a small 1500sq feet garage, Royal has grown to a 30,000 sq feet. facility offering a full line of services. From everyday car lovers to hard-core automobile enthusiasts, Royal welcomes ALL. Call to find out more or to schedule an appointment
