Founded in 1975 by Brendan Donnelly and now run by Brendan’s son and daughter, Brendan's Service Station and Brendan's Utopia Mobil extend the life of automobiles with maintenance services performed at the hands of ASE–certified mechanics. After apprenticing under their father, the brother-and-sister team took up the mantle of automotive care in 1995, overseeing speedy oil changes, tire rotations, and tune-ups that reduce the ravages of time, heat, and moving mechanical parts. The talented team plies its trade with a professional and amiable air, repairing engines or executing factory-scheduled maintenance with the benefit of years of on-the-job experience and a strong affinity for the smell of gasoline.
