The Olathe Ford Lincoln as we know it today, began in 1973 when Dee Bradley and Don Maddux purchased the business from Griff and Vivian Crawford. Thirty years later, in 2003, two long-time employees, Sam Mansker and Marc McEver, purchased the business. In 2021, Sam Mansker retired leaving Marc the sole owner.
Starting out with 30 employees and selling around 60 units a month, Olathe Ford Lincoln has grown to over 300 employees and sells approximately 25,000 units each year. We have even been named the #1 Ford dealer in Kansas City.
With the growth has come many additional departments including RV, Fleet, Commercial, Lincoln, AFI, FleetPool USA, and more.
Olathe Ford became Blue Oval Certified by Ford in 2001. Since then, we have been named a member of Ford's Top 100 Club 25 times, have won the Ford Triple Crown Award, and have received the President's Award from Ford 16 times.
Thanks to our employees, many of whom have chosen to make Olathe Ford Lincoln their career, we have earned the reputation as a great place to do business.
