Griffin Muffler & Brake Center opened in 1997 by our owner and founder, Nannette Griffin, along with her husband Clark. She has over 22 years of experience total in the automotive industry. She started in 1985 working at dealerships and has learned every area of the business through this experience, from accounting to mechanical. As a young girl, Nannette was fascinated with cars, especially muscle cars, and how they worked. She loved to see the new technology every year that the manufacturers introduced with new models. She also enjoyed working with the public and sharing information on the new technology. In Nannette’s free time, she enjoys traveling, trap shooting, hunting, raising Labrador puppies, camping, Nascar races, and being outdoors.
Today, our goal is to keep you safe on the road and advise you on how to properly maintain your vehicle. Our shop is AskPatty Certified Female Friendly, a Tech-Net Professional Auto Service Center, and members of the Midwest Auto Care Alliance (MWACA) and the ASA. Both Nannette and her husband have received an Accredited Masters in Automotive Management (AMAM) designation from Automotive Management Institute (AMI) in a cap and gown graduation at the ASA's annual meeting in Orlando, FL. Our shop’s technicians are ASE certified and MACS 609 certified.
