From a young age, John Halbrook had a passion for repairing vehicles. As described in “The Story of John Halbrook,” he would work alongside his father repairing pickup trucks down the street from the first Service King in the Dallas area. As a young man, Halbrook took a job as a mechanic at the Service King and supported the owner Eddie Lennox with other tasks. Halbrook oversaw the alignment machine, wrote estimates, and scheduled the painter when overnight work was needed. Over time, Halbrook developed a vision that would take the Service King from one small shop to 27 Service King locations scattered throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. During this time of growth, Halbrook developed a reputation as a leading collision repair provider.
Halbrook’s story is an inspiration to anyone with a vision and the drive to bring an idea to fruition.
