Our History

Established in 1987. Founded in 1987, Mr. Kap Shin opened up a small auto body shop in the upper northeast Chicago community to support their (at the time) three children. After word got out about Royal's quality work and great service, more and more vehicle owners sought after Mr. Shin's body shop which grew the shop to it's next location near Northpark University in 1989.
