The goal is to replicate the model in other markets.
“This will become a model store so we can really get our processes down,” Kessler says.
He says he’s already thinking about expanding to Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Kansas City and Dallas.
Kessler grew up in the Wichita area and then worked most of his career as a general manager and area operations manager for America’s Car-Mart, a Bentonville, Ark., dealership. Kessler’s lots were in Tulsa and Enid, Okla., and Columbus, Ga.
