Franklin Family History

Who We Are

In 1968 Don and Barbara Franklin bought their first dealership in the small town of Columbia, KY.  
 
At the time, they were looking for a way to make an honest living, honor their values and make a good home for their family.  They'd never imagined that 50 years later, the Don Franklin Family of Dealerships would have grown to 20+ dealerships and be the largest dealer group in Kentucky.

Today, over 50 years later, the Don Franklin group employs over 600 people throughout the state of Kentucky. With over 4500 vehicles to choose from, Don Franklin Family of Dealerships has the largest selection of new and pre-owned vehicles in the state of Kentucky. We offer free delivery to our closest Don Franklin dealership near you.


Core Values

All of that being the case, we still adhere to our core values of being involved and connected to our communities putting service above self.
 
You'll have seen evidence of this in the various community activities we sponsor and support - from Lexington Habitat for Humanity, Childhood Development of the Bluegrass, Master Musicians Festival, Somernites Cruise car show, local football and baseball teams; as well as, a wide variety of other charitable causes and community activities.

  
 


Lifetime Powertrain Coverage

Our Lifetime Powertrain Coverage aims at keeping you and your vehicle on the road - not by the side of it.
