Family Owned

C&M Muffler was founded in 1986 with the sole purpose of providing honest and reliable automotive care to our friends and family. As our kids and community grew, so did our determination to provide reliable auto repairs.

Our Story

Kenneth attended Denver Automotive and Diesel in 1978-79. He and Karen met and married shortly after he returned to Alaska.
They moved to the Kenai area shortly after that, Kenneth from Anchorage and Karen from Anchor Point. Ken went to work for Ed Krohn at Kenai Auto where he stayed and enjoyed working until he opened his own business. In 1986 Kenneth purchased C & M Muffler, adding Transmission and Automotive repair to the name.
