Dealership of the Year 2017 — Multi-Store Recipient

Ewald Kubota — Seguin, Texas

Multi-store Texas dealership focuses on keeping a personal touch with customers and employees as it grows.
Next year, Ewald Kubota will celebrate 70 years in business. And while the dealership has experienced a number of changes and challenges in that time — manufacturer changes, the recession of the 1980s and now growth and expansion — owner John Ewald still manages and approaches the dealership like the family business it is.

Dealership of the Year 2017 — Single-Store Recipient

Big Valley Tractor — Stockton, Calif.

Big Valley Tractor earns recognition by dominating its market, achieving strong revenue per employee and its ‘when do you want it delivered?’ attitude.

The Franzia family has a track record of successfully bringing new products to the market. Back in 1976, Louis and Josie Franzia, established a Bobcat dealership before many in the area even knew what a skid steer was. Their son, Don, joined the business the next year and catapulted sales for the next 40 years. Don and his wife, Nancy, saw a similar opportunity — and a much-needed chance at diversification — by taking on the Kubota line and creating Big Valley Tractor in 1998. The decision proved to be the right one for the dealership. Last year, Big Valley Tractor had a record year for sales and achieved 69% market share. This impressive performance and other business practices helped them earn the 2017 Rural Lifestyle Dealer single-store Dealership of the Year.
