Lynn and Lorenzo Washington, cousins from Denver, Colorado were looking to start a family business of their own. For over 13 years Lynn worked for Safeway, Inc. Starting in the grocery warehouse Lynn worked his way up to the Supervisor and Superintendent positions. After experiencing his father and grandfather owning their own businesses for many years, his father owned his business for 34 years, Lynn thought it was time to take a chance and start a business of his own.
Looking into building a family business Lynn partnered with his cousin Lorenzo. A handy and skilled auto body and mechanical technician, Lorenzo had the knowledge and vast automotive experience to assist with creating a successful NOVUS franchise. Over the years Lorenzo worked for his local Chevrolet dealership, ABRA Auto Body and RTD. Lorenzo decided it was now time to utilize his talents and experience within his own business.
Fueling their passion for the automotive industry, Lynn and Lorenzo decided to team up with NOVUS after learning more about the company and the quality technical and customer levels they stood for. Spending time with NOVUS Franchise Chris Lawson of Fort Collins, CO and hearing his perspective of the positive experience he has had being a NOVUS Franchisee further convinced the Washingtons that this was the right business choice for them. ‘I’ve always wanted to be my own boss,’ shared Lorenzo. ‘After researching NOVUS, it just felt right.’
Lynn spends most of his free time with his kids together appreciating the outdoors; he also enjoys weight lifting, exercising, working on cars, cooking and spending time with his family. He has two children Lynn III (9 years old) and Naomi (8 years old). In his spare time Lorenzo enjoys: weight lifting, restoring muscle cars, going to church, helping out others, and coaching little league football. He balances his career with spending quality time with his family either hanging or cooking out.
