(A1) Allen Laurenson-Reed – Foe Laynz Auto Shop

Date grant awarded: October 18, 2019

Allen Laurenson-Reed grew up around his grandfather’s towing company, watching his uncle work on his car – along with others – in the garage. In high school, he began taking automative classes, learning the mechanics of how the machines work and how businesses operate. It is his goal to help people in his community save funds – and the feeling of disappointment when being overcharged or inappropriately served by other providers – by having is community start taking care of their vehicles.

“Simple, safety-controlled education about car maintenance will not only save customers money, but it will also reduce their vehicles impacts on our roads and environment. Our mission is to open up multiple auto shops that provide basic education to customers on their vehicle’s maintenance while offering affordable pricing.”
