Located in Unadilla, Georgia, two hours south of Atlanta, the BranNen Motor Company (BMC) was awarded the Ford dealership franchise on December 6, 1943, to Clint B. and W. B. Brannen. Since then, it has been recognized by Ford Motor Company as the oldest, continually operating, single-family franchise east of the Mississippi River.
Clint instilled his old-fashioned values in his family, knowing that the name Brannen carries with it a reputation that is above reproach. He taught his family members and employees to value each person they meet as a new friend, and that’s why BMC prides itself on its tremendous repeat-customer base.
Over the years, BMC has evolved its staff as well as inventory. The dealership obtained a Chevrolet franchise in 1987, and in 1999, the younger Clint became the franchisee for Ford and Chevrolet.
