Founded in 1967 by Jesse “Johnny” Barron and Fidelia Barron, Johnny & Sons Paint & Body is a family-owned and operated collision repair and auto body shop in Lockhart, Texas. It all began in the late ‘60s, when Johnny was working as a substitute prepper and ‘production’ painter for a large bus manufacturer in Austin, Texas. Johnny’s quality and speed was impressive and soon he got promoted. As a driven and hard working person, Johnny also had a second job at an auto mechanic shop. When the shop owner found out about Johnny’s painting skills, he was quick to offer Johnny a section of the shop where he could do what he does best: paint & body work. Johnny was getting so many paint jobs that the shop owner gave him what’s probably the best piece of advice he’s ever gotten: open up your own body shop.
Johnny took the advice and in 1967 he was able to proudly open his very first body shop in Lockhart, Texas. The word got around about Johnny’s excellent service and quality. Soon, Johnny was contacted by a national insurance company wanting to form a partnership with Johnny & Sons Paint & Body as a Direct Repair facility. In order to do that, Johnny would have to completely modernize his operation. Johnny accepted the challenge. Johnny’s sons, Tommy and John Luis Barron, who were very dynamic and tech-savvy, helped push for the modernization of the business. In just a few months Johnny & Sons Paint & Body became a fully computerized service facility, with a directly wired connection to the insurance company, which, as we know, was a big deal in the early ‘80s.In addition to all the computers and software Johnny & Sons Paint & Body also added a comfortable, clean, and air conditioned waiting room for customers. The formula for success was complete: Johnny & Sons Paint & Body had become the first Direct Repair qualified facility in the region. Business just took off after that.
In 1985 Johnny & Sons Paint & Body finished a large remodeling project of their original building, revamping it and turning it into a state-of-the-art facility. They were proud to be the pioneers in the region to have this kind of advanced and modern collision repair facility. More insurance companies heard about Johnny & Sons Paint & Body and wanted to partner with them, too. Soon, Johnny & Sons Paint & Body were an authorized Direct Repair facility with several insurance companies in their portfolio. The business continued to grow. In 1991 we opened our new, larger and more accommodating facility, also in Lockhart, Texas. We have remained at this location ever since.
Although the configuration of Johnny & Sons Paint & Body facility has changed again in the recent years, one thing remains the same: their passion and talent for paint & body.
