Ken Garff Auto Group’s New Corporate Headquarters
Exciting changes are in the works at Ken Garff, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to announce the relocation of our corporate headquarters. On September 1st, we will be moving our office up the street from our current location to 111 East Broadway, the current Broadway Building, in downtown Salt Lake City. As we prepare for the upcoming move, it means we must bid a bittersweet goodbye to an iconic part of Ken Garff history: the first “Ken Garff Building.”
We moved into our current corporate building in 2005. Prior to that, all of our corporate employees were scattered throughout our downtown dealerships. This made it quite difficult to collaborate and meet frequently. Many of our employees still recall how each time they needed to hold a corporate meeting back then, they had to scramble to find an open office space at one of our dealerships on the downtown block. At that time, Ken Garff only had dealerships in Utah and it wasn’t until after our company moved into the corporate office that all of our out-of-state dealerships were acquired. Many employees that have worked for our company since then can testify how coming together in one location brought an increase in unity and efficiency to the Ken Garff Automotive Group.
The Ken Garff corporate team has grown from that small team of less than 10 people, into the multi-department office we see today with over 150 employees. With the large amount of growth that our corporate office has seen in recent years, it was clear that we needed a more functional office space.
We are excited for the possibilities that this newly-renovated and well-equipped building will bring. From adding some additional conference rooms, to the new floor layouts and artwork, the new office space is designed to bring the Ken Garff brand to life in every way. As we begin this new chapter in the Ken Garff legacy, it is bittersweet to say goodbye to such a monumental piece of Garff history, but we’re ecstatic to look forward and share our upcoming developments with you!
