Meet The Owners!
Rodney & Misty
Rodney and Misty are both Van Buren, AR natives. After graduating high school, Rodney attended body shop school at Arkansas Tech in Ozark, while Misty obtained an Associate of Arts degree from Westark (UAFS.) Rod spent 11+ years working as the lead painter at a local limousine manufacturer. He then moved over to Breeden Dodge before they decided to open their own shop.
Combining Misty’s business background and Rodney’s 25 years of body shop experience, they opened Evans Body Shop in November of 2006. Misty spent years as a travel agent but was always around the shop behind the scenes. In 2015 she started working here full time.
They are proud to have created an environment that really has a family feel–when you visit the shop, you might hear the rest of the staff refer to Rodney and Misty as “Daddy and Momma.” You’ll find that people have only nice things to say. They have a son named Rhett and a fur baby named Bo. On their off time, you can usually find them riding the trails, camping, or at the lake. They love spending time with family and friends.
