A little history about Chip and Heller Automotive:

The Heller family's original roots were in landscaping. Grandpa Heller was fortunate enough to meet Mr.Fox and Mr.Jacobs at the very beginnings of Fox and Jacobs Homes. My grandfather and his three boys,including my father, landcaped every Fox and Jacob home from the Oklahoma border down to the coast of Texas for many years. My father split off and started his own business in 1972. Chip and his brother came to work with their father in about 1981 and were quite happy beautifying homes with custom landscaping, irrigation and hydro-mulch until about 1983. During the course of landcaping we recieved a crash course in vehicle and machinery maintenance and repairs. We also were doing quite a bit of 'poorboy' drag racing and had begun doing side repairs in our off time to our friends, neighbors and families vehicles. Many of you may remember the S&L bust of 1983/84. It practically destroyed our landscaping business. It was time for a change and automotive repair seemed a natural fit for both Chip and his brother. The building Heller Automotive occupies now was erected in 1984/85 and officially became Heller Automotive in the spring of 1988. I bought my brother out in 2000 and am now the sole owner/operator of Heller Automotive Inc. I look forward to another decade or so of doing business here in Plano and truly hope you come experience our positive attitude and quality repairs.
