Yates Body Shop was founded in 1977 by Doug and Lynn Yates. 

 Since then the business has expanded to include Auto Sales and Rental, Towing & Recovery and specializing in Corvette Repairs.  

Business is a family affair at Yates Body Shop. Austin manages the shop and Stephanie manages the office. The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep in the Yates family, Austin also owns Yates Investment Services, and Yates Martial Arts. Stephanie and her husband, Luke, own Bland's Remodeling. Doug and Lynn have 6 grandchildren and treat every vehicle as if the grand babies were going to be riding in it.
