OAK GROVE, Ala. – East central Alabama’s newest car dealership has re-branded and re-opened with new ownership as Vaden Toyota of Sylacauga.
Nearly one hundred people showed up at Wednesday’s grand opening event at the Hwy. 280 location. Several local officials, special guests, and dignitaries were on hand welcoming the Vaden family to the greater Sylacauga area.
“As part of the Vaden organization, we are just so excited to have Sylacauga as part of our family of dealerships,” said Jane Vaden Thacher, owner of Vaden Automotive Group. “This has been a fantastic opportunity for us. We have a wonderful team on the ground here and they are doing an amazing job taking care of customers. We are just so proud and happy to be a part of the community.”
Thacher said the company has already expanded the business in the short time it has been in town.
“We are so excited to be in Sylacauga. It is a wonderful place for family and business,” said General Manager Wendell Brantley. Brantley echoed Vaden’s positive reaction to the growing business. “We have been very, very successful these first few months and we are looking forward to a great relationship with the community, in the business community as well. We want to be an asset…not just to sell cars,” said Brantley.
After a ribbon cutting on the front steps of the dealership, Vaden showed an invested interest in the community by presenting a check and donating $2,500 to the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation.
