A Bit about Us
Randy and Scott Beeninga opened Foreign Accents in 1974, but their love of cars can be traced back to when they were kids.
Ask them about their first car purchase – a $25 Volkswagen Beetle they pushed two miles back to their house when they were 13 and 11.
This love is still obvious in everything that goes on at Foreign Accents.

My father was a well educated man. I told him in 1974 when I was nineteen years old that I did not wish to continue my education but instead planned to open my own business. I could see the concern in his expression. I also knew he could see the passion in mine. We shook hands and agreed to start the business. He asked only one thing of me. “Son, promise me one thing. Promise me you won’t have an old dog sleeping on the couch in the customer waiting area.” For over forty years I have managed to keep my promise to my father.
“I have known Randy and Scott Beeninga for over thirty years. I am fortunate to count both of them as friends. I do business with them not because of our friendship, but because they are quality people. They in turn surround themselves with quality people. Whether it is Jennifer, Ross, Tom or any of the others who make up the team at Foreign Accents from your first meeting you can tell these people are consummate professionals. That is why I have done business with them for decades and will continue to do so for many more.”

William Hammett – customer since 2015
“I have 4 vehicles, 2 of which were purchased from them, all with more than 150,000 miles and Foreign Accents maintains and repairs them all. Chuck keeps our Subaru running smooth and Matt and other technicians keep our Chevrolet trucks and Jeep going. Great customer service from the front desk to the repair bays. They always have a unique or rare car they are working on. Would not think of going anywhere else for service!”
