Franklin Family History

In 1968 Don and Barbara Franklin bought their first dealership in the small town of Columbia, KY.  

50 years later, the Don Franklin Family of Dealerships has grown to over 20 dealerships, employs over 600 people throughout Kentucky and, at about 4,000+ vehicles, offers the largest selection of new and used vehicles in the state - any one of which we'll deliver free of charge to your nearest Don Franklin dealership. Our Lifetime Powertrain Coverage aims at keeping you and your vehicle on the road - not by the side of it.

A lot may have changed since 1968, but the one thing that remains the same is the pride the Don Franklin Family team takes in being involved in our communities and putting "service above self".   We expect you'll have seen evidence of this in the various community activities we sponsor and support - from Lexington Habitat for Humanity, to, Childhood Development of the Bluegrass, to, local football and baseball teams; as well as, a wide-variety of other charitable activities and causes.

The Don Franklin Family of Dealerships works daily to provide our customers the best possible experience; particularly, in finding you the right vehicle for your family's budget and your family's needs - all with integrity, competitive-pricing and a customer-first attitude.

Be it in sales or service, we welcome the opportunity to serve you!
