Huffines At A Glance

On May 5, 1924, Huffines Motor Company opened for business in downtown Denton. J.L. Huffines, Sr. founded the company on two principles which are still the benchmark for all decisions made at the dealerships — treat the customer the way they want to be treated and support the local community. Mr. Huffines believed that when he helped someone buy a vehicle, he had made a friend for life. These values have been passed from father to son to grandson. Even though Denton and Collin County have grown up since 1924, we are still the dealerships where you will experience small-town friendliness and a commitment to exceeding our customer's expectations. Today, we have nine locations and many team members waiting to serve your automotive needs in Plano, Corinth, Lewisville, and McKinney. Now and for years to come, you have a genuine "friend in the car business".
