LaFontaine Automotive Group —  August 11, 2014 — Leave a comment

On behalf of the entire LaFontaine family, I’m happy to announce the opening of the LaFontaine Used Car King in Fenton, MI.

It’s an exciting time for all of us and we hope to be a valuable community asset in Fenton and Genesee County.


The LaFontaine Used Car King plans to live up to its name by offering the largest selection of quality and certified pre-owned vehicles in the area.

About the LaFontaine Used Car King

The LaFontaine Used Car King is the newest addition to the LaFontaine Automotive Group family of dealerships.

Founded in 1980, the award winning and nationally recognized LaFontaine Automotive Group now includes 19 franchises in 12 locations across Michigan and employs over 850 people.

The “LaFontaine Family Deal” offers customers more than the best price on a new or pre-owned vehicle, it is the attitude and approach to business developed and nurtured by the LaFontaine family.

Prior to opening their doors, the Fenton community at large is already voicing their support for the LaFontaine Used Car King.

Shelly Day, Executive Director of the Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce was one of the first people to officially welcome the LaFontaine Family to town.

The Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce is very excited to have a LaFontaine dealership located on Silver Parkway in Fenton. They have been a member of our Chamber for several years and are actively involved through sponsorships and staff volunteers. We appreciate the LaFontaine’s focus on community support and professionalism while helping to improve the economic vitality in our region.

It’s Not About Cars, It’s About Community

When Mike Sr. and Maureen LaFontaine opened their very first dealership in Milford, Michigan they built their business by personally connecting with the residents of the town.

Maureen specifically was known for canvassing the neighborhood on foot and going door to door to introduce herself to as many people as she could.

She wasn’t doing this to “sell cars”, she was doing it because Maureen genuinely cared about building relationships within the community.

This passion for community is a tradition that carries on to this day through Kelley LaFontaine and her team of community ambassadors. It’s our mission to become a valuable asset and resource in each of the communities we do business in, including Fenton and the surrounding areas.

Because of their proximity to Fenton, the LaFontaine’s have been supporting local initiatives in the Fenton area for quite some time.

Whether it’s helping raise money for local high schools, supporting the Fenton Relay for Life or sponsoring the Taste in Fenton – the LaFontaine family will continue to be passionate about serving the community.

Ron Justice, President and CEO of The State Bank in Fenton said,

We at The State Bank are excited to welcome the LaFontaine group to the Fenton area. With their strong reputation and family values they are a great addition to our business community.

Echoing those sentiments, John Wentworth of the John Wentworth Group added

I am very excited to welcome LaFontaine to the Fenton Area. From what I have experienced they run a wonderful business and Ryan LaFontaine along with his family are superb people. Fenton is blessed to have them in our community and I am thankful that I could be part of them purchasing the property & helping bring them here to Fenton.

This Family dealership will not disappoint and will be a staple of Fenton for many years to come.

The LaFontaine Used Car King is located at 16555 Silver Parkway in Fenton, MI and is officially open for business on Monday, August 11, 2014.
