Asplund Garage –

In 1917 Albert Asplund started in the automobile repair business at 618 Second Street NW in Minot. During the year of 1918 he acquired the Pullman franchise and sold several cars. After a year of sales he dropped the franchise and went back to only repairing automobiles. His son, Wendell, always worked with his father. In 1941 they built a new building at 110-112 Second Street. Eventually they took on the Studebaker franchise. Later the Studebaker franchise was closed and Asplund’s became the first Toyota dealer in Minot
