On May 1, 1980 Mike LaFontaine Sr. purchased his very first car dealership. Exactly 35 years later I’m excited to introduce you to our newest family member, LaFontaine Ford of Frankenmuth.
On a beautiful spring morning in Frankenmuth, the LaFontaine and Galsterer families completed the sale of Galsterer Ford to the LaFontaine Automotive Group.
For nearly 100 years, the Galsterer Ford dealership has been a very large part of the Frankenmuth community. Taking care of their customers, employees and being good stewards in town was always important to the three-generation family.
As they began to ponder retirement and with none of their next generation interested in the car business, brothers Mike and Robert Galsterer searched for the proper partners as they prepared to turn over the family car dealership to new owners.
