About Brake Check
“We may be big and we’ll grow bigger, but we will never lose the personal touch that got us here.” -John Peveto
Our founder, John Peveto Jr. moved to San Antonio in 1968 after a successful career at Kip’s Big Boy, taking over a struggling chain named Brake-O. John quickly turned around the chain, merging with another franchise in Houston named Brake Check and taking on its name.
The secret to his success? John Peveto Jr. believed that if you do a job right, your customers will stay with you for life. That means doing whatever it takes to ensure a car’s optimum performance, not just whatever services ensure the best profits. It also means treating customers as informed buyers and carefully explaining their range of options to them, rather than trying to force a one-size-fits-all package on them. It’s not rocket science, and it doesn’t make for a flashy catch phrase, but “doing it right” has always been at the heart of Brake Check’s success. To this day, WE DO IT RIGHT is the rallying cry for all Brake Check employees to offer only the most exceptional service and to continue the tradition of making first time buyers into customers for life.
