Who We Are
Matt and Jenny Elisseos started this business as a sister company to their already established auto body shop in Enoggera called R & A Body Works. Matt has been in the auto body repair industry his whole life, and worked his way up from sweeping floors after school and on weekends to now owning that very business he started at.
Matt and Jenny have always wanted to build a brand for their already popular street rod builds. This was brought on earlier than they had planned when a new property owner took possession of the property R & A Body Works operated out of. The new owner took space back off them which made it difficult to have long term restorations or custom builds with the room they had. This is when they leased the property in Wynnum and started Candy Shop Customs.
Matt is a fully qualified panel beater and spray painter and has the hands on experience to keep Candy Shop Customs performing at the highest standards.

Why Use Candy Shop Customs
Candy Shop Customs prides itself with a high level of customer service. We have the backup of our other collision repair facility if the workshop is overloaded. Some of the largest government vehicle fleets in Brisbane use our companies for their vehicle repairs and maintenance. We offer a free pick up and drop off service for all fleet customers. We also keep an “Emergency Repair Slot” every week for our Fleet customers because we understand that down time costs you money.
We have a well maintained customer waiting area and friendly admin staff who serve complimentary tea, coffee, water and soft drinks. We can often get a vehicle back on the road in just a few days. If there is a wait on parts we can normally get the vehicle to a drivable state until parts arrive.
Our estimators are able to come to you to quote damaged vehicles or we can quote vehicles via emailed photo’s.
Our staff are well respected members of the industry and are committed to keeping up to date with new repair processes and the latest vehicles marketed in Australia. They often attend “I-Car” Industry training courses for their professional development.
Candy Shop Customs is well known for fair pricing and fast turn-around time. We have relationships with all major and specialty insurance companies which helps us get assessments and authorities processed in a timely manner.
We at Candy Shop Customs believe keeping up with technology is a key factor in the modern automotive industry which is why we have some of the latest equipment on the market like computerised spot welding equipment to ensure good weld penetration and silicone bronze mig welders to weld the latest super high tensile steel being used on the latest model vehicles.
