About Us

Welcome to Our Family


When searching for car dealerships in Kentucky, why should Don Franklin Auto be at the top of your list? Back in 1968, Don and Barbara Franklin started out with a single car dealership in the small town of Columbia, KY. Now, nearly 50 years later, they’ve expanded the Don Franklin Family to over 24 dealerships across the Commonwealth and have created more than 800 jobs throughout Kentucky. With now over 5,000 vehicles in our inventory, Don Franklin offers the largest selection of new and used cars, trucks and SUVs around. And if you find your perfect pre-owned vehicle along the way, we’ll deliver it to your nearest Don Franklin dealership.

Unlike some dealerships in Kentucky, at Don Franklin Auto, the customer comes first. Our customers have been loyal to us because we’re loyal to them. We work hard to keep things running smoothly throughout the life of each and every vehicle we sell. We provide 15-year/500,000-mile Powertrain Coverage on all new and most pre-owned vehicles.

A lot has changed since 1968, but one thing has stayed the same. The Don Franklin Family of Dealerships continues its tradition of supporting our local communities and doing business with a handshake and an honest man’s good word. Simply put, we’ll treat you like family at our Kentucky dealerships.
