Central Tune-Up Carburetor & Electric was first opened in 1976 as a small specialty electrical & fuel systems shop. Owner Robert Service started in the car repair business at age 16, became a master certified technician in 1980, and took over operations at Central Tune-up in 1984. Over the years the business has evolved and grown and become a full service facility with eight full time staff.
