About Us

Terry’s Service Center has been a family owned and operated one-stop auto repair shop in Nashville, TN since 1990. Founded by Terry and Marge Janiak and now run by David and Kristen Drake, we’ve been providing top quality automotive services to our remarkable customers in Nashville and surrounding communities for over 20 years. We are passionate about car repair and enjoy building lasting relationships with our remarkable customers throughout the community. We love what we do, and we love to help others!



In April of 1990, Terry opened Terry’s Service Center in the garage behind the Texaco on Harding Road in West Meade. Marge ran the office while Terry repaired each car that came in. The business continued to grow until the day they realized that a larger shop was needed. One of their customers was a real estate agent, and he helped them find the property where Terry’s Service Center is located now.

As retirement approached for Terry and Marge, they knew that David, their Master Technician for the past ten years, would be a great candidate to step in to the shop owner role. He and his wife, Kristen, now own the business and handle the day-to-day operations.
