The New Franchisee Taking the Auto Industry by Storm
Updated: Oct 13
We are excited to announce the newest owner of Grizzly Auto Detailing: Kenneth Burrows. After recently moving to Texas, longtime auto mechanic Kenneth is looking forward to building a business that is all his own.
Who Is Kenneth Burrows?
Kenneth and his wife, Anita, are parents to a five-year-old daughter. And as any parent knows, that means life is busy at home as well as at work. Kenneth has been working in the automotive industry for years and holds numerous certifications and licensures, including the EPA 608 and 609 and his ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certification.
After a recent move from Tucson, Arizona, to Texas, Kenneth decided he wanted more for himself in his new location. With that in mind, he turned to FranCoach in search of a semi-absentee ownership opportunity. Grizzly Auto Detailing was the perfect fit.
Why Did Kenneth Make a Career Change?
Kenneth enjoys his career as an auto mechanic, especially working with his hands and helping others learn and grow. But he wanted to expand his portfolio, investing in his financial future and building a business that was truly his own.
Throughout the Discovery Process, Kenneth and Anita worked collaboratively to find a brand that would allow their family to do just that, setting an excellent example of how important the spouse can be when it comes to finding the right franchise opportunity. From the get-go, Grizzly Auto Detailing stood out as a promising option, and by the end of the process, Kenneth had confirmed that Grizzly was exactly what he was looking for.
Why Will Kenneth Make a Great Franchise Owner?
Throughout the Discovery Process, Kenneth worked with FranCoach’s Lisa Rios to vet franchise options in order to determine the right fit. Here is what Lisa has to say about why Kenneth will make an exceptional franchise owner:
“Kenneth is a hard worker. He would do anything for his family, and he is not afraid to get down to the nitty-gritty. And with Grizzly, the attraction was mutual. Kenneth felt right at home with the Grizzly team, and I am sure we will see him prospering with them for a long time to come.”
Why Did Kenneth Choose Grizzly Auto Detailing?
Grizzly Auto Detailing is a veteran-founded business centered around providing every customer with a reliable, top-quality car detailing experience – and that is a promise they follow through on every day. Grizzly even offers a mobile app that allows its technicians to visit customers wherever they are, and it currently serves over 40 major U.S. cities.
Kenneth connected with the team at Grizzly right away and even brought his wife and their daughter with him to attend Discovery Day in Virginia. He built strong relationships with the Grizzly crew, particularly co-owner and Chief Executive James Scroggin. The semi-absentee model, the strong support, and the smooth integration into his existing auto industry career all contributed to Kenneth’s enthusiasm for and commitment to the Grizzly brand.
Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Kenneth Burrows and wishing him luck as a new owner of Grizzly Auto Detailing. We can’t wait to see him succeed!
