J.D. Byrider opens 2nd Richmond franchise
Buy-here, pay-here dealership group J.D. Byrider announced this week it has opened its second franchise in Virginia’s capital of Richmond.
This marks the sixth J.D. Byrider store in Virginia, and it is the second Virginia dealership for franchisee Craig Baker, who opened the first J.D. Byrider store in the city back in 2012.
The new store is located at 4505 West Broad Street.
“Richmond has proven to be an outstanding area to expand the J.D. Byrider brand,” said Baker. “My staff and I are dedicated to bringing the same level of service and experience to this new dealership and helping customers with less-than-perfect credit find dependable, affordable vehicles.”
Offering the highlights of the store, the new 2,500-square-foot facility will offer used-car sales, two service bays, affordable pricing on parts and labor and a 24–month/24,000-mile service agreement on all cars purchased, the company shared.
The company’s growth will create approximately 10 new jobs at the new Broad Street location and five at the Midlothian Turnpike location.
“Craig is an excellent operator and will continue to serve our customers well as he opens a second location in Richmond,” said Tom Welter, vice president of franchising for J.D. Byrider. “He knows the value of our business model and operational support, both of which are driving the unprecedented unit of growth we are expecting.”
With the addition of the new Richmond store, the dealer group has opened a total of six new dealerships this year, bringing the dealership total to 169 locations in 34 states.
Most recently, J.D. Byrider added a new Northern store, as new franchisee Jay Brichke opened his store in Old Bridge, N.J. The dealership at 1225 Route 9 North is the first J.D. Byrider location in New Jersey.
