Sampognaro's Closes After 27 Years and Opens New Service Center Location in Frankfort IL

Bill Sampognaro and his family closed down their previous automotive repair location of 27 years, Sampognaro's, and opened a new and improved service facility in Frankfort, IL called Frankfort Family Automotive Repair. The ribbon-cutting was held on April 17, and the open house on April 18, which showcased a variety of custom vehicles and demonstrations of the latest in auto repair technology.

He and his wife Tracy have also owned and operated Flossmoor Family Automotive Repair in Flossmoor, Illinois for over 17 years. Bill, Tracy, and their children all work at the business and consider the local community as an extension of their own family.

“We’ve remained committed to a very strict policy of going far beyond what our customers expect.” explained Sampognaro. “It sounds like something very basic but is so rare these days, especially when it comes to regular service for our cars.”

During the past five years, Sampognaro has been searching for the ideal location to expand his operation.

“I live within just a few miles of the new shop and know many people in the community,” explained Bill. “So, this new location is absolutely perfect! It provides us with the right amount of space to add the latest in automotive repair and maintenance technology, a custom car showroom, and a customer lounge that is as comfortable as your own living room.”

The new Frankfort Family Auto Repair has a waiting area that includes free Wifi, a coffee / espresso bar, kids activity area, and a large TV.

Oil changes and regular auto service work take place each day, but Bill and his team’s expertise extends beyond mini-vans and daily drivers. They are also known throughout the Midwest as experts in the performance car community. A factory-trained BMW technician is on staff, and they perform service and repair work on both domestic and imported vehicles of all makes and models.

"We also perform classic car repair and restoration," added Tracy. "That's our passion and we have a lot of fun doing it."

Frankfort Family Auto Repair encourages customers to stop by the shop anytime to have their vehicle’s fluids and tire pressure checked, which continues to be a free service at both their locations.The new automotive repair location is at at 22359 S. Center Rd in Frankfort, adjacent to the Speedway on the corner of W. Laraway Rd.
