students. They volunteer their facilities for community events such as
First Night Fairfax. They hold Car
Care Clinics designed to educate
customers and "take the guesswork
out of maintaining their vehicles".
They are involved with both Girl
Scouts
and
Boy
Scouts.
Additionally Craftsman Auto Care
organizes fun community events
such as Cars and Coffee.
On a personal note, I am a
believer in the "Say Yes!" philosophy discussed in Matt's book, The
A.D.D Entrepreneur. As an example,
when presented with the opportunity to be co-editor of this magazine I
initially considered declining,
thinking it would be too much
additional work in an already busy
life. As evidenced by this issue's
Steering Column, I said "Yes" and
I'm very pleased that I did.
I truly enjoyed my time speaking with Matt and Judy. Their positive and passionate attitudes are
inspirational. Craftsman can work
on any vehicle, whether it be a daily
driver, race car, or anything in
between. See their website at

one's best effort to every endeavor
with honesty and respect. It
represents the commitment that is
made to stand by our work and to
provide the Craftsman Experience

was right and I realized how much
I actually missed the business.
We got the old crew back together
to include my managers and technicians; the original people. After
the Alexandria location started
rolling we opened the Fairfax location. Our old managers and technicians would call us and ask,
"Hey, are you hiring?" That
prompted us to open more stores.

Right now we have four locations.
dB: What is your favorite part of
your job at Craftsman Auto Care?
Matt: I really like helping people
and solving problems. It's pretty
cool because everything you learn
from the track really translates to
the shop. It makes you much more
sensitive to cars. Solving people's

Judy: Matt set new industry standards from the late 1990s to 2013
with Curry's Auto Service by creating new trends in delivering auto
repair services. In 2017 Matt (came
out of retirement and) created
Craftsman Auto Care based on the
Curry family principles of integrity
and service to others. He is committed to earning his customers'
trust, easing their auto care stress,
and ensuring their satisfaction.
That's why the industry's only 36

backed by the Curry family crest.
It represents the values instilled by
the late William Curry, patriarch of
