This Company is About Cars. Sort Of.

“Yes, we sell and service cars. And in some ways, that’s what we’re about. But honestly, we’re really about people. Ken Garff, our founder, believed any business is about people. We could sell boats, furniture, or corn dogs — it wouldn’t change our philosophy.”

Our Mission

“We aim to become the most esteemed automotive group as we treat people right and create lifetime customers.”

From One Dealership In Salt Lake.

“Ken Garff opened his first dealership in 1932, and quickly built a thriving company that embodied his trademark work ethic and values.”
