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.

Back in 1976, Louis and Josie Franzia, established a Bobcat dealership before many in the area even knew what a skid steer was.
