So just how did Ken Garff get his start?
An explosion at a Shell Service Station on the corner of 500 South and State Street nearly cost Ken Garff his life, yet it catapulted him into the car business. Ken was an attendant at the station and had walked out the doorway to help a customer at the pump when the building exploded behind him. Shell began reconstructing the building, but Ken was left with little to do. Thus, he began to sell used cars to keep himself occupied. When Shell completed their building they gave Ken an ultimatum, “If you want to keep working for us, you need to stop selling cars.” Too late. Ken had discovered the car business and was not turning around.
Ken Garff founded his business in 1932 upon the principles of honesty and integrity, personalized customer service and being a good corporate citizen. These ideals fueled Ken’s success as he earned new car franchises such as Oldsmobile and Studebaker.
Today, these same ideals are at the very cornerstone of this third generation business and the reason why consumers rate the Ken Garff Automotive Group as the Most Preferred Dealer in the State of Utah according to a January 2004, Dan Jones survey. The Ken Garff Automotive Group is now associated with 39 new car franchises, three used car stores and five collision repair centers located at 45 locations throughout Utah, from Ogden to St. George. The Ken Garff Automotive Group also has business interests in insurance, warranties and ecommerce companies.
As mentioned, the Ken Garff Automotive Group believes in giving back to the community. Since Ken founded his business in 1932, the company has given millions of dollars and thousands of man-hours to schools, charities and community organizations.
