Meet the Staff of Cody's Automotive
Cody - Co-owner
Meet Cody, the owner and the one who started it all. Cody grew up on a farm in southern Michigan and spent much of his childhood working on old bikes, farm machinery, and classic cars. He attended the University of Northwestern Ohio where he earned an associate's degree in automotive service technology. After he graduated, he worked as a mechanic in Michigan before moving out west to work in the oil fields of Wyoming. He then moved to the Nashville area in 2006 with a dream of someday starting his own business. By 2009 he was working as a mobile mechanic out of the back of his old Chrysler. Since then, God has grown his business exponentially. In 2013, he expanded to a shop near downtown Franklin, TN and by the end of 2016, he obtained his TN dealer license which made business grow even faster. Cody's crew at the shop continued to expand as well, and they quickly outgrew the small one bay shop that they were renting. In July of 2018, Cody was able to purchase a much larger, 14 bay shop on the same street in Franklin and a shop in Columbia as well. Cody is humbled daily by all that God has done in and through the business in such a short time, and he is committed to providing honest, high quality care to his customers and demonstrating the love of Christ in the shop each and every day. On the weekends, you can find him spending time outdoors with his wife Megan and their 5 beautiful daughters.
Fil - Co-owner
Meet Fil, our multi-talented, co-owner. He grew up in Florida and moved to the Nashville area in 2002 where he worked as the general parts manager at Honda for 10 years. He also worked for several years as a firefighter for the Nashville Fire Department before coming to work full time at Cody's in 2018. Fil is both a jack of all trades and a master of ALL (cooking, mechanics, business, art)....honestly, this guy can do anything! When God brought Fil and Cody together, it was a providential connection. Cody and his wife, Megan had been searching and praying for several years for a devoted partner who could lead and manage the business side of the shop and ultimately lead them into greater growth and expansion, financially and spiritually. When Fil began working part time with Cody in 2014, it became obvious that he was the answer to the couple's prayer. Fil's experience and knowledge of parts, inventory, management and customer care have been indispensable. He is both hard-working and humorous, and he brings a level of professionality to the shop that would not exist without him. When he is not at work, you will find him spending time at his home in Thompson's Station with his beautiful wife Judy and their four children.
Robyn Goodside - Office Manager
Meet Robyn, our very talented office manager. She grew up in South Florida and migrated here to Tennessee where she has worked and raised her family. We consider her to be our gatekeeper here at the shop and she keeps us grounded, giving us stability and peace of mind while operating a growing business. She stays healthy by a number of activities like Barre and hiking, but most of all loves spend timing with her husband of 20 plus years, their 2 lovely daughters, and her many other spiritual daughters.
