Matthews Motor Company Celebrates 35 Years and Counting!

New owner Jason Matthews began working for his dad as a kid


by Home Page Staff - July 25, 2016

Not everyone can say they grew up in their dad’s footsteps and went on to purchase the family business and continue a tradition that began 35 years ago, but Jason Matthews of Matthews Motor Company has done just that.

“I bought the company from my dad about a year ago.” Jason is now the General Manager and owner of the car dealership his parent’s Doug and Marylou started in 1981 in Blossburg, located in Covington since 1989.

Matthews Motor Company is one of our key sponsors here at Home Page. So, as soon as we heard about this big event we sent out the A-Team to cover the fun. Home Page CEO, Sara Vogt and Director of Video Production, Andrew Moore joined Jason and his staff for their grand opening celebration on Saturday, July 23. On today’s broadcast you’ll find out who was there, who won the $1,000 give-away and hear from Jason himself about his love of community, team members and yes, you got it – cars!

If you did not get a chance to go Saturday, Jason and all of the team members at Matthews Motor Company invite you to stop in and see the newly renovated dealership and say hello to team members like Chris Roupp, who has been with Jason as sales manager for 13 years; and Diane Wood, office manager who has just celebrated 15 years at the dealership. Jason said, “She is so good to us that she had to tell us a year in advance that she is retiring and I’m still not sure we will be ready”.

Matthews Motor Company has grown along with the family over the last 35 years. “I’m proud of this dealership and the people that work here. Our team cares about other people and you can’t manufacture that” – Jason Matthews.

In addition to being a certified master dealership and a twenty-seven year member of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association, Jason and his team have expanded the business into a multi-service facility. It’s not just selling and trading cars these days. Stop in and find out more about their rental service, body shop and car detailing packages. Oh yes, and along with the quality cars and excellent service you’ll find at Matthews Motor Company, they also buy cars.
