The Austin American-Statesman: Christian Brothers Automotive Gives This Franchisee the Opportunity of a Lifetime

The auto repair company invests in Keith Guyton, a former criminal who turned his life around.

Despite Keith Guyton's past involvement with drugs and burglary, he has just been given the opportunity to purchase his very own Christian Brothers Automotive in Georgetown, Texas from the business founder's son, Jonathan Carr. Carr and Guyton met back in 2009 to talk about a service adviser position. Guyton was honest about his story from the beginning, won over Carr's trust and got the service advisor job. 

Now, Carr has decided to sell his Christian Brothers Automotive business and is even personally financing Guyton's interest-free loan. Carr, the son of Mark Carr who founded Christian Brothers Automotive, is selling the Georgetown business to work on the company's corporate team in Houston.

"I'm probably as thankful and happy to see this happen to Keith as Keith is to have this happening,” Carr told the American-Statesman. 

While he was in his early 30s, Guyton flushed $50,000 worth of cocaine down the toilet then became a personal trainer and real estate agent to pay his drug dealer back. Now, he is beyond grateful that Carr has given him a chance to own his own shop.
