009 Bryson Richards | Navigating the difficult transition from employee to shop owner painting some of the most famous Porsches in the world
Bryson Richards is a long time friend and the founder of Classic Livery of Atlanta, the specialty paint shop behind the Keen Project Safari 911’s and countless other cars you’ve seen before. In this episode we get into how Bryson got started in the paint and body business and how with the help of a few key people in his life, he was able to open his first paint shop roughly 10 years ago. We talk about going from not having enough money to put gas in his car to get home at night and sleeping in the shop to painting cars bound for the concourse lawn at Pebble Beach. If you’ve ever wondered what kind of grit, persistence, and humility it takes to open a shop of your own, then you won’t want to miss Bryson’s story.
