Fred Beans took a risk at a young age. Fueled by the desire to be a successful entrepreneur, he purchased the 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. His unflagging hard work and uncommon business sense
continued to pay off, and Beans began acquiring other dealerships.
Throughout the growth of his business, he made sure that his company's
values remained 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 automotive
group selling 19 different auto brands through 14 dealerships in
southeastern Pennsylvania. Still based in Doylestown, Bucks County,
locally the automotive group also owns and operates Fred Beans Collision
Center, AutoExpress of Doylestown, NAPA of Doylestown, Autorent of
Doylestown and the nationally recognized Fred Beans Parts Warehouse.
Beyond Doylestown are Fred Beans stores and subsidiaries in Boyertown,
Berks County; Devon and West Chester, Chester County; and Limerick,
Montgomery County. The wider organization includes partnerships with
McCafferty Automotive in Langhorne and Mechanicsburg and New Holland
Auto Group, all of which have numerous subsidiaries.
Much of the company's colossal success is owed to the hands-on approach that Fred Beans is known for, even 35 years after taking ownership of his first store. An approachable manager, Beans leads by example, readily mentors employees and other business people, and 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.
"I enjoy coming to work each day," says Beans. "I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with my employees and our customers. It has always been my core belief that we are all just caretakers for future generations, and it is that which keeps me going. We are so fortunate to have so many nice customers and a great community in which to live and work."
Regarding the special responsibility that comes with financial success, Beans has said, "I believe we have an obligation to give?and an obligation to teach others to give." He has used his leadership position and resources to make a difference in his community, and has also encouraged his employees to give back to their communities in their own ways.
Beans himself is a past recipient of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce's Business Achievement Award, the top scouting award from the Bucks County Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and the Intelligencer newspaper's "Power Brokers: Bucks County's 10 Most Influential" in 2000 for significant impact to the county over his lifetime.
The Beans organization maintains the Fred Beans Charitable Fund, which provides financial support to organizations and initiatives both large and small. When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships - at Beans's urging - worked with other community leaders to adopt the towns of Waveland and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The $113,000 raised throughout the Beans organization wholly furnished the award-winning state-of-the-art daycare center built by the Bucks-Mont Katrina Relief Project.
With special concerns for recreation, families, education and children, the Beans organization has contributed meaningfully to the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, where a gallery in the respected museum is named for the company, the Central Bucks Family YMCA and CB Cares , a nonprofit organization that serves as a catalyst by engaging, empowering and linking the various community sectors to create a healthier community with positive attitudes, behaviors and values.
The Fred Beans Family of Dealerships is exactly what its name suggests, a family-owned company, built and operated with pride. All three Beans daughters hold important positions within the company, and customers and employees alike agree that the entire organization feels like one big happy family.
Beth Beans Gilbert, vice president of the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships, runs the management company and implements her father's vision for the corporation. Barbara Beans manages the Fred Beans Fleet Group, a division of the company responsible for sales and deliveries of vehicles to area businesses. Jennifer Beans Keiser manages the Autorent division, including Autorent of Doylestown and locations in Limerick, West Chester and Boyertown. Also very active in the community, Jennifer represents the company at several business expos throughout the year. Barbara and Jennifer also spearhead the company's annual observance of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day®, planning a day in April of meaningful, fun activities for employees and their young visitors.
