Colorado Springs’ first All Tune and Lube opened earlier this month at 1715 S. Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs.

Owner Jeff Skelton has been in the automotive industry for over 26 years. He started as a mechanic, technician, then management. He was living in Chico, California and traveling to this area frequently as part of his job, helping dealerships set up and learn his company’s software.

He was offered a position with Bob Penkus dealerships here in the Springs, which his wife Christine and all three boys, Jacob, Caleb and Kenny thought was a great idea. Jeff did too, so they moved out here in 2012.

Jeff was also thinking about having a business of his own. His friend, local realtor Walt Lau Hee, was also looking for an investment to diversify his income. The two started looking at franchises. Jeff decided to go with what he knows, so narrowed it down to automotive services.

They decided All Tune was the best fit and offered the opportunity to grow along with an expanding company. They found a great site, at Bally’s Plaza, Chelton and Academy, right across Academy from the Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Jeff and family (Christine, Caleb and Kenny all work there as well) opened for business on December 5, 2016. All Tune offers complete car care and repair, including oil change and lube, brake services, transmission services, AC, scheduled maintenance, fleet services, tires and more.

All Tune and Lube is open 7am to 6pm Monday through Friday, 8am to 3pm Saturday and closed Sunday. You can reach them at 719-358-8905, visit them online at (coupons available on the website) or connect with them on Facebook at
