When manager Rachel Garza says that Dealer Supply Network offers “everything car dealers need to run a dealership,” she isn’t kidding. From pennants and banners to inflatables, from all manner of forms to windshield markers and snow removal rakes, Dealer Supply Network has it — and sells it to dealers across the country.
Dealer Supply Network was founded in 1989, and Rachel has been there since the beginning. She was just a teenager when the original owner — already her employer at another local business — asked her to be part of the new venture. Back then, she said, the owner pounded the pavement with a product list in hand. Today, under the ownership of John Eyerman, who purchased the business more than 10 years ago, it’s a very di erent company.
“From where we started, he totally revamped the business,” Rachel said, including developing a catalog and establishing a website. “I don’t think we’d still be here if he hadn’t moved us forward.”
Rachel notes that Dealer Supply Network is “still small potatoes” compared to its competitors, “but we make a big impact,” thanks not only to the advances the company has made in the last decade, but to loyal clients and a good reputation in the industry. Dealer Supply Network serves most of the major local dealerships and used car lots as well as dealers from here to Alaska.
