CARSTAR Myrtle Beach Opens in the Grand Strand

CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR Myrtle Beach, located at 1560 Highway 501, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.

CARSTAR Myrtle Beach owner, Ken Depper, grew up in the industry as his father owned a body shop. Depper started spending summers in the facility at the age of 12. Depper’s interest stayed in the shop ever since, even walking there after school from the bus stop.

“My first job outside of my dad’s shop was at CARSTAR and I always liked the company and knew some of the core team members,” says Ken Depper, owner, CARSTAR Myrtle Beach. “As a former technician and painter, I understand both the shop needs and our business needs. It was an easy choice to join CARSTAR, knowing the support the company provides and the resources my team would now have access to.”

CARSTAR Myrtle Beach is a 7,500 square foot facility, fully tooled with the industry’s latest in equipment and up-to-date on the latest repair standards. Currently working towards its I-CAR Gold certification, the team at CARSTAR Myrtle Beach is always working to outperform their past selves in the quality of work they deliver to its customers.

“Our network of owners has a passion for their repair quality because they live and work in the communities they support,” says Dean Fisher, collision group president, Driven Brands. “Body shops need more training and education than ever before. Owners join our network because they don’t want to sell their business, but they need help keeping up with industry advancements, so they can continue serving their customers with the highest level of repair quality.”

As a locally owned business, Depper and his team work to give back to Myrtle Beach through various charitable initiatives and community sponsorships. The team is excited to continue serving Myrtle Beach as a locally owned and operated facility, with boosted support and capabilities.
