About Frank Kent Cadillac

History

What is now known to many across the state of Texas as Frank Kent Motor Company, began in 1935, in the heart of Fort Worth. Years before that, in 1917, the now late Frank Kent began his career in the automotive industry, gaining experience and respect through an honest work ethic and reliable service - creating a strong foundation for the business today. Mr. Kent worked hard and remained active in his role as owner and Chairman of the Board until his death in 1987. Staying true to our family-oriented business practices. Mr. Kent's granddaughter, Wendy Kent Churchill became owner and president of the company in 1995, after serving on the board for many years. Ms. Churchill spent 10 wonderful years in the driver's seat of Frank Kent Motor Company, before passing away in May of 2005, leaving a strong legacy behind her. Soon after, her children Will and Corrie Churchill stepped into leadership roles within the company, and currently oversee all of the Frank Kent family business operations. Their guiding motto remains. "Morals, values, and ethics over profit".

Throughout their many business ventures, they aim to maintain high standards of excellence in both sales and service; which have been recognized through numerous awards. Frank Kent's employees, customers, and community remain our most valuable assets. We strive to provide a professional atmosphere founded on sound business ethics, honesty, integrity, and a focus on family, which brings outstanding customer satisfaction.
