About Us Frank’s Servicenter Southampton, PA
Frank E. Dischinger, Sr. first opened “Frank’s Atlantic Servicenter” in September of 1962 at the intersection of 2nd Street Pike and County Line Road in Southampton, PA. Frank, Sr. was an experienced auto repair technician, and wanted to bring top quality auto repair and maintenance services to the wonderful people in Southampton and the surrounding local communities.
This family owned and operated auto repair shop has continued to thrive for more than 55 years, and three generations of Franks! The automotive business that Frank, Sr. started was passed on to his son, Frank, Jr., and then to his grandson, Frank, III, the current owner. While Frank’s Servicenter has grown throughout the years, the dedication to reliable automotive repairs and complete customer care has never changed.
