Brake Check came into being in 1968 when John Peveto Jr. came to San Antonio and took over the ownership of a company called Brake-O. Brake-O specialized in repairing and replacing car brakes. Within a few years, the business was thriving, having gone from one store to an entire chain. Numerous things can be attributed to the chain_s success, including the advent of free brake inspections, clean waiting areas, free coffee and, most recently, free Wi-Fi. Brake Check's slogan states, "We do it right and today", and this applies not only to brakes, but also oil changes, alignments, diagnostics and parts.
