Kansas City Star Features Frank Ancona Honda’s Remodel

Kansas City Star reporter Greg Hack featured us and our recent $6 million construction remodel in a recent Kansas City Star article. The article covered the trend of Kansas City auto dealers improving their dealerships with upgrades.

In the article, Michael Ancona, president of Frank Ancona Honda, said that although the renovations disrupted business, the hassle was worth the extra space and provides more value to their customers.

“Honda always encourages dealers to improve their facilities,” Ancona said. He added that given the improving economy and affordable financing, “we needed to upgrade.”

Much of the construction project was finished in September 2013, but there is still some polishing to do, Ancona said. Because of weather delays, the few remaining cosmetic touches will likely have to wait until spring.
