On May 5, 1924 Huffines Motor Company opened for business in downtown Denton. J.L. Huffines, Sr. founded the company on two principles which are still the benchmark for all decisions made at the dealerships – treat the customer the way they want to be treated and support the community.
Mr. Huffines always believed that when he sold someone a vehicle he had made a friend. Passed from father to son, to grandson, Mr. Huffines' philosophy has formed the solid foundation on which every Huffines dealerships are grounded, small town friendliness and a strong commitment to please each and every customer.
Through all of this, Huffines had been satisfying customers – many who still shop at Huffines today. The fact that grandchildren and great grandchildren of original customers still shopping at Huffines 85 years later certainly proves the success of their commitment to customer satisfaction.
Today, the Huffines Motor Company has grown to nine auto dealerships in Plano, Denton, Lewisville, and McKinney and has over 800 team members to better serve all their customers automotive needs. The dealer franchises include Chevrolet, Subaru, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, KIA, and Hyundai. All of the dealerships include the latest most advanced cars, trucks, and suvs as well as a plethora of pre-owned vehicles.
Ray Huffines, is the dealer principal for the Huffines Auto Dealerships and is guiding the dealerships selling more than 13,000 new and used vehicles a year, still embracing an 88-year-old mission—to treat customers’ right and support the communities in which the Huffines’ dealerships operate.
“The Huffines family has always said if we treat someone how they want to be treated and support the community as well as take care of your employees, success will take care of itself” states Mr. Huffines.
