About the Business

The Elysian Auto Service Story began back in 1984 when Carl Morsching was attending South Central College in North Mankato for Automotive Technician. On his way home from college Carl saw the Conoco was for sale. So Carl decided to purchase the Conoco gas station which was located where Casey’s general store is today. The station provided fuel, auto repair plus 24 HR AAA towing. Elysian Auto Service built a reputation as a quality facility that provided top notch auto repair and emergency service for the southern Minnesota Lakes Region. In 2001 Owners Carl and Susan Morsching supervised construction of a brand new facility at its current location of 203 East Main Street, which allowed Carl who is a certified master technician, to create the type of auto repair shop he had always envisioned with a singular focus on automotive repair. Elysian Auto Service upgraded to 4 bays with lifts, an alignment rack, new front office and lobby, and parking both front and rear to better accommodate the customer. As the company grew so did the staff which included Susan Morsching is managing the front office and marketing, two full time technicians, part time technician in training, and of course Carl overseeing all shop operations. In recent years the incorporation of technology has been the biggest change with full digital inspections that can be sent to phones or computers to allow the customer to see the condition of their vehicle, and a complete software upgrade for both shop and office that allows the most efficient part tracking, repair diagnostics, and customer information all at our fingertips. We strive to make each experience the best it can be..we always say “we don’t want you to feel like a customer, we want you to feel like family”.
