Who We Are
City Auto Glass is not a large, multi-level corporation like many other auto glass replacement companies. What we are is the largest chain of locally owned and operated glass shops in the upper Midwest. All of the owners of City Auto Glass have been in the industry for more than 25 years and for most it is the only profession that they have ever worked in! We are experts in this business and our philosophy is, and always has been, the safety and satisfaction of our customers. The people at City Auto Glass, whether it is the owners, sales representatives, technicians, or customer service representatives, will serve you with the utmost urgency, respect, and professionalism.
City Auto Glass was originally named South St. Paul Paint and Glass when Dale Schenian purchased the company in 1968. At that time we did not offer auto glass replacement. Auto glass replacement service was added when South St. Paul Paint and Glass became associated with U.S. Auto Glass. It was at that time that Dale discontinued selling paint and changed the company’s name to Twin City Glass to more reflect the area of our service coverage. Dale had his choice of auto glass franchises, but chose U.S. Auto Glass because of their high quality of workmanship and materials used. This stands true today. Dale eventually decided to franchise his auto glass business and changed the name to City Auto Glass. When Dale retired in 2006, his son, Michael Schenian, became company president. Today we employ more than 85 people and serve almost every corner of Minnesota.
City Auto Glass now has 33 physical locations and Installation Center partnerships throughout Minnesota, which serve Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, and Northern Iowa.
