Business Now: Brake King

Brake King is a family owned, full service automotive repair facility offering automotive repair and diagnosis. The business was started by Sam Hutchinson in 1966 and is located at 5969 Jefferson Ave.

Since opening, the business has been on a path of continued success. They quickly grew their customer service base and expanded the facility from the original 10 service bays, to an operation that included 18 bays. In 1977, Sam’s son Randy took over the business and represented the next generation of ownership. Under Randy’s leadership, Brake King continued to grow by improving its business model to focus on offering low prices and more service bays.

In addition to its repair services, Brake King also sells tires, performs alignments, provides fleet service and conducts Virginia State Inspections. Since opening, Brake King has serviced over 500,000 vehicles from its original location and plans to be in business for many years to come.
