New Ford dealership coming to Colquitt County

New Ford dealership coming to Colquitt Co.

COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) - Owners of a new Ford dealership officially broke ground in Colquitt County Friday morning.

The new dealership will be right behind the current Ford dealership on West Crawford Street.

The owner said they have outgrown their current facility, and to better serve their customers and community, they needed to expand.

"Seven years ago I think we had 10 employees, we're at 23 now. This should enable us to bring on another four or five positions. So, we'll have somewhere right around 30 jobs," said Garett Franklin, owner of Franklin Spring Creek Ford.

Franklin also said the grand opening is projected to take place around next summer.
