Family-owned business Bob Tedford Chevrolet is celebrating its 55th anniversary.
The business was established March 15, 1963 by Bob and Sandra Tedford.
According to information provided by the Tedfords, Edwards and Tedford owned the dealership until 1966 when Bob Tedford bought out the dealership.
At that time, the dealership was located at 121 S. Main in downtown Farmersville, where the Main Street Music Hall is located today.
In August of 1982, the dealership moved to its present location on Highway 380. Previously, the location was a lumberyard. The business was moved due to lack of space for the growing dealership.
Bob and his son, Robbie, operated the dealership together until Bob passed away in July 1997. At that time, Robbie and his wife Kailyn purchased the dealership from Sandra Tedford.
“We would like to invite everyone to stop by and meet our dedicated staff and see the new 2018 Chevrolets,” Robbie said.
Currently, the business is located on 10-acres with four building. They have 14 employees.
