WEST CHESTER, PA — The Ford Motor Company Top Volume Dealer Hall of Fame annually recognizes a very select group of consistently high-performing Ford Dealers who are known as outstanding retailers and community leaders.

“We are so pleased to honor Fred Beans with this prestigious award. He is truly a dedicated leader who embodies the spirit of what being a Hall of Fame Dealer is all about – being loved by his customers, respected by his employees, and engaged with surrounding communities. We are so proud of Fred and how he represents Ford every day! My sincere thanks and appreciation go out to everyone on the Fred Beans Automotive Group team,” said Andrew Frick, vice president, sales, distribution & trucks, Ford Blue.

Frick recently inducted Beans into the 2022 class of the Ford Motor Company Top Volume Dealer Hall of Fame during a Ford Top Volume Summit in Florida. With the honor, Beans received a special jacket and a ring that indicate he is part of this elite group of Ford dealers.

Beans recently celebrated his 51st anniversary as a Ford dealership owner. He purchased a 25 percent share of Bill Marsh Ford in Newtown, Pa., in 1972. Today, he owns that dealership as Fred Beans Ford of Newtown.

When announcing Beans as an honoree, Frick noted the 24 President’s Awards and 14 One Ford Elite awards earned by Fred Beans Ford dealerships. Out of the more than 20 Fred Beans Automotive Group dealerships, eight of them are Ford stores, including Fred Beans Ford of West Chester. The auto group also runs a parts distribution center, which prompted Frick to designate Beans as “King of Ford parts.”

Frick also noted Beans’ commitment to give back to the communities in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that welcome his operations. He specifically noted his ongoing efforts since the onset of the pandemic to donate portions of sales and service bills to fight hunger.

“Our entire Fred Beans Ford team is honored to be recognized as a Ford Top Volume Hall of Fame Dealer,” said Beans. “We continuously strive for excellence in delivering an outstanding dealership experience to all our customers and are dedicated to making a real difference in our community. We are sincerely grateful to receive this honor from Ford Motor Company!”
