Drennen buys local Ford dealership

| September 18, 2014

DSC_0003COSHOCTON – Jeff Drennen has completed a goal of having a dealership that can sell every domestic brand with the recent purchase of DeCosky Ford. The dealership will be known as Jeff Drennen Ford and will remain in the location on South Second Street in Coshocton. The deal was finalized on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Drennen said about the purchase, “I know the importance of a good dealership in a small community and with us having Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Ram going on 12 years now, and having all of the GM brands in Zanesville going on 10 years now, it was like a dream come true to be able to add Ford to those impressive lineups. It gives us all the American made brands and it makes a lot of sense.

Drennen said the plans right now are, “My plans are now to renovate right here – we’re going to do a major renovation on the facility here that we hope to get started on soon.”

Jeff said this about having the three dealerships, “The key in this business, number one, is taking care of customers but being able to take care of customers by offering all the selections that we have now, and all the options they have to choose from, in a community this size, it’s unheard of to be able to have the nine franchises we offer. Coshocton is a small community, Zanesville is a bit bigger as we know – but being able to tie those together being only a half hour apart – it’s completed the Jeff Drennen Dealerships as far as the franchises that I’ve desired to own.”

Talking about the importance of the local community’s support, Drennen said, “At this stage of the game for me it’s about the people that I employ. Ninety percent of the people that I employ are local people themselves. Here in Coshocton – and even in Zanesville – we all know each other, so we’re here to take care of the customers. There is such an opportunity here at this Ford store to grow this one, but being able to be that asset that I know a good car dealership is to each and every community is very important to me. We will work extremely hard here at Jeff Drennen Ford to bring it up – to grow it – like we did the Chrysler store and like we have in Zanesville.”

“We’re looking forward to being able to give back – to be that business owner in this town that the community can count on and see where it goes from there,” said Drennen.
