Holiday Ford Project
Fond du Lac auto dealership Holiday FORD is in the midst of a major remodeling and expansion project. The refurbishing of the interior and exterior “is about serving our customers better, by offering them more choices, greater convenience and more customer friendly amenities,” stated Holiday Ford General Sales Manager Gary Deitte. “Ford is funding half the cost of the facility upgrade as part of the Ford Trustmark design program.”
“Wisconsin’s fastest growing Ford store will soon be one of its most appealing facilities for customers,” said Holiday President, Mike Shannon. “Our showroom is coming together nicely. We invite everyone to come check it out!” The exterior of Holiday FORD is taking on a sleek contemporary look incorporating a visually striking entry tower and brand wall. Inside, customers will be treated to a new reception area leading to an open and airy showroom outfitted with new furniture, fixtures and lighting, creating a beautiful environment to feature a collection of the newest Ford vehicles. Shannon added: “We’re adding a four-bay delivery area along the North side of the building, which will make for a comfortable space for our product specialists to acquaint customers with their vehicle before driving it home. Other improvements include an enlarged and modernized drive-thru service reception area, new customer lounge and remodeled restrooms.”
Keith Mankovecky, Vice President of Service, Parts and Body Shop for Holiday Automotive, has been the project lead and primary coordinator, working hand in hand with the design team from Ford Motor Company. ”We got started in early September after some prep work to the grounds and shortly after Holiday Mazda moved next door into the building formerly occupied by the Kia dealership, which has left the area,” stated Mankovecky. “What’s really nice is that Ford’s program allows us the flexibility to adapt the design to best suit our local market”.
Holiday FORD, a Mike Shannon Automotive Company, is a full service-family owned auto retailer based in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. The company was founded in 1959 and enjoys a reputation as one of Wisconsin’s highest-performing dealerships in sales rank and customer satisfaction.
