Want to keep your ride looking it's best?
Akrham Shine’s rise to the top all started with the a Mustang. Owner, Kevin Awalt was given a Mustang at the age of 15 by his father. At first he just wanted to keep his ride looking great. Throughout High School his interest grew, and he was doing detailing jobs for friends & family. During College he was the local go to guy for keeping your ride looking it’s best. The years went by only for Kevin to get better at his trade. In 2008 he opened up a place in Danbury, but more recently in March 2015 he opened up Arkham Shine (interviewed by The Danbury Review).
Arkham Shine handles all aspects of Auto Detailing including window tinting, paint protection film, ceramic coating, scratch repair and paint touchups. Kevin’s business sees a wide variety of different customers from dads who want to keep the family Jeep looking its best to higher end clients who want to protect their new Maserati with paint protection film.
Owning a Small Business in 2016
Kevin states that the toughest thing about opening was getting the word out. He explains that often Auto Detailing doesn’t have the best name recognition. There seems to be a lot of amateurs out there claiming their auto detailers, but they don’t have a professional background. Kevin’s been Auto Detailing for 20 years, and based on the before & after pictures I saw I’d say he really knows his stuff.
In 2016 the toughest part of having a business is the fact that you’re always working. The connectivity of modern technology has extended the 9-5 work day and had a significant impact on work/life balance. In business you can never really clock out. He relies on the effectiveness of the internet including Google rankings, Facebook and Instagram. Its 2016 and people aren’t opening up the phone book anymore. The only way new customers will find you is through your internet presence.
After talking with Kevin Awalt, owner of Arkham Shine it is readily apparent that they are one of the leaders in the auto detailing business. They are one of the only auto detailers in Connecticut that guarantee their results.
