We pride ourselves on having "Small town feel with a big city appeal."

Our Story

The owners of D & B Auto Body, Brandon & Nikki, started as high school sweethearts who eventually wanted to open a collision repair shop. They have owned the shop since 2012. They purchased the shop from the previous owner after Brandon started working for him in 2010. Brandon and Nikki have 2 children who have been involved with shop since the beginning and now work full-time for the business. Kenan works as a technician and Leilani works as office personnel. They also have an office dog named Pepper. (She mostly just sleeps) This truly is a family owned and operated business! They love serving the Sauk Rapids and surrounding communities in a big way! 

Our Team-It's a Family Affair

Brandon is one of the owners, but he is also the advanced technician in the shop. He has been doing auto body work for 23 years! He graduated from the St. Cloud Technical and Community College with a degree in Auto Body in 2001. He has also been a substitute instructor for the college in the past. He has a strong passion for Auto Body.  On a more personal note, he has a great love for fishing that he enjoys sharing with others in many ways, especially sponsoring the Sauk Rapids High School Fishing Team. On the weekend he is regularly found out on the water fishing(as he avoids Nikki's "Honey-Do-List")

Nikki is the other owner of the shop, and she is the main office manager. She does a majority of the estimating, scheduling, and parts ordering. She has been the main office personnel since the shop was purchased in 2012. She graduated from the St. Cloud Technical and Community College in 2001 with a degree in Business Management. She holds a spot on the Advisory Board for the Auto Body program at the college. She also worked for the college before purchasing the shop.  In her personal life she enjoys organizing, interior design and most of all designing things for Brandon to build or create.

Kenan is a relatively new technician out in the shop. He's been hanging around the shop since he was 8 but, now he finally has a title. He graduated high school in 2022 and has been gaining experience through working in the shop and is being mentored by Brandon. He is now able to work on small projects completely by himself! It is a big help to have two shop technicians now. Outside of work Kenan enjoys working on  his own car and fishing like crazy with his dad Brandon

Leilani is new to being office personnel. She's been hanging around the shop since she was 10. She graduated high school in 2020 and graduated college in 2021. She has a Business Managment degree from the St. Cloud Technical & Community College. She helps with checking in parts, processing insurance supplements, and helping develop the NEW blueprinting process. She is being mentored by Nikki in the office and is learning new things every day. After work she enjoys being a mom to her daughter Taytum, a dog mom to Thor and Willow and a National Guard wife.
