About Brandon Foster
The Formative Years
Brandon Foster was born in Tulsa, OK and raised in Claremore. While in his formative years he attended Claremore Christian School where he stayed busy running track, playing basketball, and participating in 4H. A first impression of Brandon Foster would have been that he was the typical all-american boy. However, there was more to him than met the eye. Starting as a young boy Brandon foster was driven to succeed and showed a focus and determination that was rare to find in a person his age. His grandfather was a successful business owner and used to say to him, “Work hard, and work just as smart as you work hard.” Brandon Foster never forgot those words and he took them to heart and even as a young boy began to put them into practice.
While growing up Brandon Foster’s mother worked as a hair stylist out of their house so that she could stay home with her kids. Brandon Foster was eager to start making money and saw an opportunity to get his start. He began asking his mother’s clients if he could detail their cars while she cut their hair. Next, he took a job at Hollister Monument Company washing tombstones and loading them onto trucks when he was only 14 years old. Every day after school he would work from 4-11pm and then walk several miles home once he was finished with his shift. He would go to basketball practice in the morning, attend school all afternoon, and then would work all evening. He would ask off to attend his games, but in truth he would rather have been working.
The First Start-Up
Brandon Foster only grew more determined as he reached high school. While high school boys are typically focused on getting a girlfriend or partying, Brandon Foster was focused on making something of himself. As the words of his grandfather continued to echo in his ears Brandon Foster decided to open a single bay customer service detail shop the summer between his junior and senior year. He spent his time in the business detailing cars for car dealerships around his hometown. As soon as school was dismissed every day he would immediately go to work where it wasn’t abnormal for him to stay till 3 or 4 in the morning. There were times that he stayed so late that he showered in the wash bay and returned to school without having ever gone home first. Through his focused determination he was able to grow his business to winning the contracts for every single car lot in his hometown. Once he became a senior in high school Brandon Foster was already making more money than his teachers, and at the end of the year, Brandon single handedly payed the way for his entire graduating class’s senior trip.
Currently Brandon Foster has launched numerous successful auto dealerships, wholesale companies, oil-related companies, and trucking and hauling companies. He lives in Owasso with his wife Ashleigh and their 3 kids where they enjoy visiting their lake house, watching their kids compete in softball, basketball and cheerleading, and finding ways to give back to their community by working hard to provide brighter futures for underprivileged children.
