Just in case you are one of our new friends, here is a little Chuck Fairbanks History for you. How we started, what we believe in, and where we are headed.
Chuck Fairbanks Jr. and his father, Chuck Fairbanks Sr., the highly successful former head coach for the University of Oklahoma and the New England Patriots, began Chuck Fairbanks Chevrolet on June 13, 1980 in Lancaster, Texas. Chuck Jr. built the same kind of ALL-PRO TEAM in the Chevrolet business as his father had done for many years in the football business. Chuck Jr. credits his father for instilling in him strong morals, a solid work ethic and a desire to be the best to accomplish the highest standards.
In October of 1993, Chuck Jr. built our current facility right off of Interstate 35E, in DeSoto, to accommodate the needs of his growing business. The very next year, we poured more concrete to store our inventory on site, keeping up with the demand for Chevy trucks.
In September of 1997, the foundation was laid for our Pre-Owned building. In 2013, we remodeled our dealership and upgraded our buildings to a more modern and comfortable atmosphere for our customers. Our state of the art facilities were redesigned with our customers in mind and we do our best to make you feel welcome in our home.
Every year, around our birthday, we throw a little party we like to call Fish-Fry Friday. We serve up fresh fried catfish, hot hush puppies and all the extras to our loyal customers, hardworking employees, and friends in the community.
We believe in giving our customers a great ownership experience in all areas of our business, sales, service, parts and body shop. We’ve been in business for 34 years and some of our employees have been with us since the early years, making it possible to have a great experience with the same staff year after year. In a sea of publicly held companies and auto groups, Chuck Fairbanks Chevrolet is a welcome rarity. We have been proud to serve our community for the past 34 years and we are excited to serve for many more years to come.
