The History

Joe Carbone started the Carbone Auto Group in the 1920’s with $40.00 and a drive to succeed. He firmly believed that trust and loyalty were the key to any relationship, so he used those principles as the foundation of his business. He valued all of his customers, and treated each and everyone of their car needs as his number one priority. By 1933 his hard work and commitment to his patrons began to pay off as his business expanded one franchise after another.


It was important to Joe that he pass along a strong legacy so he ensured that his sons, Don and Al, had the proper training. They started their apprenticeships from the ground up, mopping and waxing the showroom floor before school each day. Over time they graduated to the proud duties of reconditioning vehicles and preparing them for delivery, as well as mechanical and parts, body and paint work. Ultimately striving to have hands-on interaction with the customer via a coveted sales position; his patrons began to pay off as his business expanded one franchise after another.


Joe Carbone successfully passed along his sense of pride, customer appreciation and quality guarantee to his sons, Don and Al Carbone, who continued to run the business with the same pledge to excellence and customer satisfaction that their father did.


“Every day we try to live Joe Carbone’s philosophy. Build relationships by being a friend to the customer, do the right thing, and be the best at it.”
