Humble Beginnings

Fred Beans took a risk at a young age. Fueled by the desire to be a successful entrepreneur, he purchased Big Oak service station in the late 1950s with a $5,500 loan co-signed by his mother. His out-of-the-box marketing ideas and tireless work ethic brought Beans success, and a hunger for a bigger challenge. In 1972, he bought a 25-percent share of Bill Marsh Ford in Newtown, where his diligent efforts doubled business in the first year.

On February 28, 1975, Fred Beans signed the papers that gave him ownership of the J.J. Conroy Ford dealership on Easton Road in Plumstead Township, just north of Doylestown. Success came quickly and Beans began acquiring other dealerships, always keeping his company's values grounded in customer service, employee development, and community enrichment. His visionary business philosophy has made the Fred Beans nameplate what it is today: a family-oriented dealership group selling 23 different automotive makes, with the Fred Beans Nissan of Limerick, Saturn of Limerick, and Nissan of Doylestown locations being the most recent additions.

DealershipMuch of this success is owed to Beans hands-on approach, even 30 years after taking ownership of his first store. Following the sentiment of not leaving his troops out in the hot sun, Beans is an approachable leader who stands beside his employees on the sales and service floors. In fact, Beans was chosen to serve with just 17 other dealer principals nationwide on the Ford Motor Company Process Improvement Steering Panel.

Beans has used his position and resources to give back to the community in a host of ways. Locally, he is the past recipient of Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce's Business Achievement Award, the Bucks County Council, Boy Scouts of America Top Scouting Award, and the Intelligencer newspapers PowerDealership Brokers: Bucks County's 10 Most Influential in 2000 for significant impact to the county over his lifetime. Recently, the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships has worked with other community leaders to adopt the towns of Bay Waveland and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Both towns were ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, and thanks to the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships they will now have a new, state of the art daycare center. Another venue that the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships has committed to is the James Michener Museum. An endowment was presented to the Museum by the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships affording the museum the ability to increase the size of the facility and acquire additional collections. The Museum is one of the many cultural attractions found in Bucks County that brings numerous visitors into our area.
