There has never been a question in Brandon Tomes’ mind about what he would do for a living. After all, he grew up “in the business.”
When Brandon was born, his family owned and operated Bob Tomes Ford in McKinney. Practically from birth, he appeared in TV commercials and billboards promoting the dealership. Summer jobs were never hard to find as Brandon worked a rotation through virtually every department at the auto dealership. With that experience, today he is not only a seasoned salesman but could ably assist a master mechanic in the restoration of an old truck.
After graduating from SMU, the easy route would have been to quietly slip into place at the Ford dealership but Brandon’s aspirations were grander and he started plotting his own destiny that would expand the family business.
Enter Brandon Tomes Subaru!
Listen in as Brandon describes the path that brought his own dealership to McKinney, his passions of travel, cooking, and his latest accomplishment, marriage.
If you would like to visit Brandon (or Bob) at the Subaru and Ford dealerships in McKinney, you will find the Tomes Auto Group on the service road of Central Expressway just south of Virginia Parkway. It’s a little tough to get to these days with all the road construction but well worth it!
