Don Hargroder’s Courtesy Automotive Group, primarily a GM dealer, has added the former Jackie Edgar Ford in Breaux Bridge to its portfolio of dealerships.

First reported in the September-October issue of ABiz, The Independent Weekly’s sister business publication, Courtesy has been managing the Breaux Bridge dealership while it awaited Ford's approval of the purchase.

That approval brings Ford back into the Courtesy group, the state’s GM sales leader for the past several years. ABiz’s “Dealmaker of the Year” in 2009, an award presented in connection with the publication's Top 50 Privately Held Companies event, Hargroder once owned a Ford dealership in Morgan City for a short time. Hargroder has also decided to move his Lincoln dealership from its location south of the Mall of Acadiana to Breaux Bridge, creating the new Courtesy Lincoln Ford.

Courtesy is headquartered at 4750 Johnston St., where it sells GMC and Buick; its Lafayette Cadillac dealership is on Ambassador Caffery, and it also has dealerships in New Iberia, Morgan City, Franklin and Abbeville.

Taking over Jackie Edgar Ford is the latest strategic move for Hargroder, who’s been in the retail auto business almost 30 years.

In March Adrian Vega purchased Hargroder’s Mazda dealership, adding it to his Evangeline Thruway lineup across from the airport.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the Breaux Bridge dealership, 2022T Rees Street, Friday at 10 a.m.
