BRIGHTON, Mich.- Today was an outstanding day in Brighton Ford's history, celebrating our 25th Anniversary of being in business! Mike O'Brien, Ford's Detroit Regional Sales Manager, visited the dealership this morning to present the Spitler family with a plaque representing 25 years of business!

Since our start in 1988 when gas prices were below $1.00 per gallon and stamps were only 22 cents, Brighton Ford has been the automotive leader in the Brighton Community. Family owned and operated, Jerry Spitler originally bought the franchise from Wilson Ford when the dealership was located on the corner of Grand River and Cross Street, where Walgreen's and Belle Tire are currently located. Since then, the dealership has experienced exponential growth and has grown to employ close to 200 people and has an inventory larger than any other car dealership in the area. And today, the family business is operated by brothers Todd and Scott Spitler who are proud to be part of the Brighton and surrounding communities!

The hard work of the Spitler Family and all those employed at Brighton Ford, especially the four men who have worked at the dealership for all 25 years: Russ Jenkins, Jerry Genai, Wally Gawal, and Dave Yezbeck, has definitely paid off. Of all the dealerships in the United States, Brighton Ford is in the Top 50 for New Car Sales and is also in the Top 5% for Sales Expectancy. Not to mention, last year alone, Brighton Ford completed almost 15,000 retail repair orders amounting to almost $2.6 million and ranking the dealership 11th in the nation!
“We’re very thankful to the generations of loyal customers we’ve had over the years as well as all the new residents who have enabled Brighton Ford to grow and prosper over the last two decades. We have found the brand loyalty and commitment to buy American exhibited in our community invigorating.”  -Todd Spitler
