Exactly one year ago Tuesday, Rodney and Peggy Holliman opened up their first business, Honest-1 Auto Care, just off Port Royal in Spring Hill, and to celebrate, the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce along with members of the community held a ceremonial ribbon cutting outside the auto care center.
With over 30 years of experience in healthcare administration, Rodney said he knew he wanted to open up his own business one day, but hadn’t narrowed down exactly what type of business it would be. After looking over his options with Peggy, Rodney soon realized the similarities of running an auto care center had with the healthcare industry, and after learning of the flexibility and support Honest-1 Auto Care offered to its store owners, decided to open his own Honest-1 Auto Care.
At that point, it was simply a matter of deciding where to open their new business.
“When we were looking for a place to build, we looked at different communities; we looked at Nolensville, we looked at Bellevue, we looked at a number of them,” Peggy said. “[We] decided to do Spring Hill – we both wanted a smaller type of community to get involved in – it’s a great area.”
The Hollimans even have some assistance from their two sons, with one working full time at the shop, and the other part time. Both Rodney and Peggy hail from Colorado, and have called Williamson County their home since 1998.
Following a brief speech, local business leaders, aldermen such as Jeff Graves and newly elected Alderman-elect John Canepari, and community members alike gathered together outside the auto center for the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
