Bob Wondries opened in Alhambra in 1949. The dealership has updated its buildings and service area, but they have always been located at 400 S. Atlantic Blvd.
“Bob Wondries has been serving the community for a long time, and our staying power is the approach of treating our customers like family,” said General Sales Manager Charles Ma, who has been at the dealership for 15 years. “We’re also proud to share that we continue to expand our car fleet, and we have more than 525 cars in our current inventory. We have everything ranging from commercial fleet and retail to certified pre-owned vehicles.”
Last year, Wondries Ford made it a priority to create the ultimate experience for their parts and service customers by remodeling the driveway that leads to their service desk and customer lounge. The new driveway will help them match their world-class services with comfortable and easy access to their department.
With 119 experienced and knowledgeable employees, they have the ability to service a wide range of car brands. Three of the employees have worked at Bob Wondries Ford for more than 30 years, and many others from 10 to 20 years.Each employee is eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm as they forge new relationships with their customers.
The dealership serves the community in 10 languages, including English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Taiwanese, Farsi, Spanish, Thai, Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese. Throughout the year, the employees and management of Bob Wondries Ford get involved in community events.
Most recently they visited Atlantic Times Square to display the new 2015 Mustang for 30 days and answered questions for community members. They also participate in the “drive-in for your school” events and raised enough funds for the Alhambra High School athletic division to build a new scoreboard on their outdoor playing field.
Paul Wondries is the owner of the Bob Wondries dealership, and it has been a family owned and operated business for 66 years. He also owns Kia of Alhambra, Nissan of Alhambra, Wondries Toyota, Wondries Family Collision Center, and other dealerships in Northern California, Arizona, and Nevada.
The top-selling car is the Ford Fusion. The all-new redesigned 2015 Mustang will be released for purchase this year.
“We’re ready to serve the community with brand new Ford vehicles,” said Mr. Ma. “They are best in their class in terms of safety and fuel economy. We have a large inventory and certified employees with product knowledge and customer service training ready to build lasting relationships with our customers."
