ELLSWORTH -Â Linnehanâ€™s Right Way Auto held their Groundbreaking Ceremony today at the site of their new location at 39 Downeast Highway in Ellsworth. Owners Chadd Linnehan and Steve Hicks, along with their families, were present to witness the beginning of the construction process. Construction is expected to take 5-6 weeks, with a targeted opening date of July 1st.
Steve Hicks stated that â€śThe facility will include a 2 bay garage to detail the vehicles, as well as a sales office with room for 3-4 employees. Since the location is on the corner of Route 1 and Short Street, we will be able to display vehicles along both roads, and also across the middle of the lot. The lot will comfortably accommodate an inventory of 35-45 vehicles.â€ť
The owners specified that they plan on focusing on the portion of the market that offers the best value for their customers. â€śWe will offer a wide variety of Cars, Trucks, SUVâ€™s, Crossovers, and Minivans, both imports and domestics, all the while concentrating on the price range that is affordable to most Mainers,â€ť added Chadd Linnehan. The mission statement of Right Way Auto is â€śTo help people find the Right Vehicle for the Right Value and treat them the Right Way.â€ť
Linnehan commented: â€śI am excited to carry on the heritage that was established by my grandfather, John Linnehan, Sr., who then passed the torch on to my father. My family has built a solid foundation for us to build our business on. Ever since my father sold his businesses in November, people have been commenting to me that it was hard to get used to the fact that there were no Linnehanâ€™s selling vehicles here in Ellsworth.â€ť
Chadd Linnehan will be the 4th Linnehan generation to own and operate an automobile dealership in Ellsworth â€“ a legacy of family businesses that dates back to 1950. Chadd started full time in the automobile business in 1994, and partner Steve Hicks has been in the automobile business since 1997. Steve is originally from the Maritimes, and in 2004 settled in the Ellsworth area with his wife, who is from Maine, and joined the Linnehanâ€™s team.
