Houston—Fix Auto USA has announced the opening of Fix Auto Houston, which is the first Fix Auto USA location in Texas and the 15th state that the growing collision brand has expanded into.
Fix Auto Houston is owned by Kevin Taylor, a second-generation collision shop owner, who joins the Fix Auto USA family with 18 years of experience as an owner-operator. He previously oversaw a team of nearly 30 employees to become one of the largest franchisees in the U.S.
Although he grew up supporting his family’s collision repair shop, the automotive industry wasn’t always Taylor’s plan, he said. When he began his career, he took the white-collar route for finance. Taylor also began lending time assisting his father with his collision repair facility. In two years, he doubled the sales of the 20-year-old established business. At his second location, he achieved similar success, growing sales from $800,000 to just shy of $6 million.
“A key component of longevity in this industry is the ability to stay up to date with its changes and technologies,” Taylor said. “We aim to service customer’s vehicles today, tomorrow, and into the future.”
He has earned dozens of awards, including the Maaco Cup, an award presented to the top franchisee in North America. Taylor’s industry tenure has also seen him hold various positions on multiple industry councils.
Fix Auto Houston is both I-CAR Gold certified and Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)-certified. Taylor himself holds an I-CAR Platinum certification.
