Dan's father, Larry Merriam, continued the family tradition by expanding the business to multiple locations and brands including Lincoln Mercury, Ford, Hyundai and Jeep. Although Larry is retired he will act as an adviser to the new dealership.
Dan Merriam said, "I am very proud to be continuing my family's tradition of providing great cars at fair prices, backed by excellent personal service."
The building the new company will occupy is owned by the Acampora family. Attorney John Acampora said, "We were very focused on acquiring a quality tenant for our building and we feel very comfortable with the Merriam's and their operation."
Dan Merriam studied automotive marketing a Northwood Institute which is affiliated with the National Auto Dealers Association. He previously was a partner in a used car dealership in Wallingford, CT and before that ran the Connecticut branch of Rapid Car Cash.
According to Dan Merriam the dealership will stock between 75-100 used cars. "Every car will be priced competitively below other cars in the market. Every car will be completely serviced and safety inspected before it is sold. Every vehicle will come with a warranty and will be eligible for an extended warranty. Bottom line, the mission of Sound Auto Wholesalers is to provide great cars, great prices and great service all with the idea in mind of creating customers for life!"
