Park Place Dealerships has both moved its Jaguar dealership from Plano, Texas, to Grapevine and added the Land Rover brand to its portfolio.
Construction for Park Place’s new store, Jaguar Land Rover DFW, is complete and is set to open on Saturday with a roster of 70 employees. This is the third dealership in Northeast Tarrant County for the company.
“Northeast Tarrant County has been growing at a great rate since we opened the Lexus dealership in 2000,” Park Place chairman Ken Schnitzer said in a news release. “We moved our Mercedes-Benz dealership from the Mid-Cities to Grapevine in 2012 and we recently broke ground on a Porsche dealership, which we plan to open next year. To say we love doing business in this area may be an understatement.”
Located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Jaguar Land Rover DFW is a two-story, LEED-certified facility on eight acres that has a nine-car service drive, a 2,800-square-foot carwash and a shop with 34 service bays and an 18-car service drive.
“We will be adding jobs as we begin to assess new positions that will be needed to best serve our clients in the Park Place manner,” Park Place president Jordan Case explained. “We are always looking for people who enjoy taking care of others and working in an environment where they are valued.”
Additionally, Park Place’s newest facility’s showroom can hold up to 12 Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles, according to the company.
Park Place’s former Jaguar Plano store was a recipient of the 2016 Pride of Jaguar Retailer Excellence distinction for its fifth consecutive year. Only 16 of the 162 total Jaguar dealers in the U.S. were selected, according to the company.
Customer advocacy, sales and business excellence were the three core business categories Jaguar dealers were recognized for.
Last year, Jaguar Plano also earned the Marque of Distinction title as the No.1 Jaguar dealership in the country three years in a row. Just one Pride of Jaguar Retailer Excellence recipient is awarded the title each year.
