Dale’s Automotive started out as a Minit-Tune & Lube franchise in the late 1970’s. It was purchased from the estate of the owner in 1992 by Dale Sutherland, who dropped the franchise and went on to create an auto repair business based on trust and excellent workmanship.
In 2002, Jon Meyer purchased the business and continued serving residents of Fort St. John and the surrounding communities with the best possible automobile and light truck service at reasonable prices. Jon was born and raised in FSJ, and has first-hand knowledge of your needs and the needs of local industry.
Jon has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in tools, equipment, and training to provide the best service possible to his friends, his community, and the business you own or work for. If you have an automotive problem, or if you need to schedule maintenance to prevent a problem, make Dale’s your first call! (If you call Jon ‘Dale”, we promise he won’t be offended; Dale is a pretty good guy!)
Bio: The first Minute Muffler shop opened on the corner of 5th Street and 6th Avenue South, in Lethbridge, Alberta in 1969.
At that time, Minute Muffler was the only shop in Lethbridge specializing solely in mufflers and exhaust systems. News quickly spread and Minute Muffler became an instant hit and the talk of the town.
Minute Muffler was so successful that in 1971 a second shop was opened in Medicine Hat, Alberta quickly followed by two more shops in British Columbia. Following this success Minute Muffler became a franchise business. Today there are over 90 Minute Muffler & Brake franchises across Canada.
Although muffler and performance exhaust systems remain our primary service we also specialize in brake repair, shock absorbers, struts and at a growing number of locations we offer oil, lube and car care check-up and other services.
The guiding principle remains the same as the first Minute Muffler shop opened back in 1969. Simply put…
“Where doing things right the first time is a way of life and where you know, you’re valued the minute you walk through the door”.
The Minute Muffler network of stores takes pride in being able to help keep Canadians safely on the road.
Dependable. Accurate. Safety-first.
