Bryan Seybold was having breakfast in Colorado City with his grandfather while on leave from the Air Force. As they drove down the highway Bryan looked at Moore’s Auto which had been closed and remarked to his grandfather, “I’d like to own that place someday.”

Tuesday night, a scant 60 hours later, Bryan was at Craver Middle School playing in a men’s basketball league. A league he played in every chance he got, since his youth, growing up in the Rye/Colorado City area. Bryan shared that soon he would be out of the Air Force and wondered if there was work in the area. Pat Steel, owner of Rye Septic, suggested Bryan talk to Mountain Disposal owner Jim Klipfel who might need a diesel mechanic- a job Bryan had been doing in the military for the last dozen years.

The Klipfel meeting took place and Bryan was hired to manage The Service Center which opened in February 1, 2018 just before Bryan had completed his military obligation.

The 2005 Rye High School graduate and his wife jumped in with both feet and it wasn’t long before it just made sense for the Seybold’s to buy the business from Klipfel and Jerrod Power, the original owners, to “keep up with the needs of the community.”

"We are forever grateful for Jim and Jarrod giving us the oppportunity to own The Service Center," agreed both Bryan and Erika.

Wife Erika arrived in Colorado City via her birthplace state of California with a sojourn in Pueblo West, where she graduated from high school. She then followed her husband around several military stops and now with sons, age 8 and 6 and daughter, almost 2 years of age works in the family business alongside her husband.

Erika serves as a service writer, office manager, does flat tire repairs, light mechanics and is in charge of keeping up morale.

“There is basically no auto service we don’t offer,” shared Bryan. “We do tires, oil and service needs, can work on brakes, engines, interior, some body work, hydraulics, diesel or gas, and RV’s.”
