Kirby's History

  • Dean Kirby, noted for his engine repair skills, set up his first service station in Green Hills in 1955.

    He established his business as a great combination of automotive expertise and personalized customer service. In 1980, Dean moved his operation to Hillsboro Road in Franklin, where it currently resides. Kirby’s Texaco was a great place for Dean’s son Mitch to learn about working on cars. By watching and helping the mechanics, Mitch’s expertise and love for cars was born. By the time he turned 13, Dean had heard enough of Mitch’s pleading and finally allowed him to stop pumping gas and start turning wrenches.

    Mitch has worked at the station since then (with a little time off to get an education) and declares it “The Greatest Job In The World!” Dean retired in 1998, and Mitch has been running the business ever since.

    As the times have changed, Kirby’s Garage has changed along with them. But in 50 years, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: Mitch’s belief, (instilled by his father), the customer comes first.

Franklin Shop

  • This is why the store in Franklin is open six days a week, and why you can find Mitch there, working on cars or chatting with customers.

Dear Mr. Kirby, I just wanted to take a minute and tell you what a great job your manager, Byron and your employees did repairing my car recently. I had a doctors appointment and went out to start my car and the battery was dead. I called and talked to Kayla and she took down my information. To my surprise, within 15 minutes Byron was knocking on my door. He jump started my car and I drove to your garage, where your employees replaced my battery and had me going in no time. (I was even on time for my doctors appointment.)
It was a great experience from start to finish and that kind of service just doesn't happen that often anymore. I will recommend your services to everyone I know. Thanks again and I look forward to doing business with your establishment in the future.

Mitch, Thanks to you and your capable staff of professionals, my 1999 Suburban is running like a new car. Byron and the mechanics fully explained, in layman?s terms, the work that was required to get me going again and kept the cost to a minimum. Your service center has a great reputation for fairness and performing quality work and I look forward to being a customer from now on. I will not hesitate from recommending you to friends and business associates. The McCord family appreciates you and your employees.

Mr. Kirby, My family has been using Kirby's garage for almost 20 years now with total satisfaction. My wife and I now live in Spring Hill, and we still choose to bring our cars to Kirby's whenever we need work done. The folks are always very helpful and trustworthy - especially Mitch and Byron. I can't say enough good things about them!
