CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR on Nicholasville, located at 2159 Lexington Road, Nicholasville, KY.

CARSTAR on Nicholasville is the fourth CARSTAR facility for co-owner Kevin Rains, but first partnership with the local business group who own Toyota on Nicholasville, led by Rick Avare. Rains, owner of CARSTAR-South Broadway, CARSTAR Center City and CARSTAR West Chester, is excited about the newest location and reach into Nicholasville.

“My father opened his own collision repair facility in 1978, so I grew up around this industry and it is exciting to see how far we have come,” said Rains. “Teaming up with other local entrepreneurs helps expand our service offerings to new communities and also helps us all grow because we can learn so much from one another.”


CARSTAR on Nicholasville is a 9,000-square foot facility that is nearing the completion of its I-CAR Gold certification and pursuing its Toyota and Lexus certifications. Led by General Manager Thomas O’Nan, the team and facility are equipped with the latest training and equipment to provide premier repairs to all makes and models.


“Although Kevin Rains only joined CARSTAR four years ago, he has quickly built a strong reputation for himself in the regions he serves, in the CARSTAR family and in the industry,” said Dean Fisher, collision group president, Driven Brands. “We are thrilled to see him continue to expand and bring in new partners to further enhance his service offerings.”
