The owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx, Tracy Myers, said, "A lot of people don't realize that my great-grandfather opened the first Frank Myers store here in the Triad more than 100 years ago! Then my dad (also named Frank Myers) had the vision to open the second Frank Myers store in Winston-Salem. I bought the company from him in 2006 and now my 19 year old son, Presley, is a part of our Team. I'm extremely proud that I've been a part of multiple generations of entrepreneurs serving our neighbors and it is a blessing to be honored as a Family Business Award winner by the Triad Business Journal."
General Manager Keith Bowman also expressed his gratitude. "Frank Myers Auto Maxx really is a special place and this is a special award. I feel fortunate to have been here for the past 13 years and I look forward to being able to serve for many more."
