Beene Motor Sales has been serving customers in and out of the Freestone County area since 1960, giving customers the best prices and service for new and used vehicles.
Elmer Beene Jr. started in Chevrolet sales with the Ferguson Group of dealerships in 1952. As Mr. Beene gained stature and loyal following at Ferguson, he and the Ferguson Brothers purchased Wade Motor Company in downtown Mexia. Elmer Beene acquired the Ferguson interest and changed the name to Beene Motor Sales in 1982.
Elmer Beene and Martha Beene were married in August of 1963. Elmer Beene was born in Freestone County and Martha was born in Limestone County, however, both were raised in Limestone County. They have a son, Brett Beene.
Brett Beene graduated from the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University in 1987 and began working at Beene Motor Sales with his dad in 1988. ?I knew what I wanted to do all my life,? said Brett Beene. ?I grew up in the car business.?
Upon his father?s retirement in 2000, Brett became the Dealer Principle and is now head at Beene Motor Sales.
Brett will be married to Chana for 25 years in September 2013 and they have two children. Their daughter, Blair Beene, is a senior in high school and plans to attend Baylor University in the fall and son Chet is a sophomore in high school.
One of the tried and true ways to tell if a business is truly good is by the employees. Robert Williams has been at Beene Motor Sales since 1965; Gary Barkouskie since 1971; Eddy Plummer since 1982 and Phil Easterling since 1989. Cody Lamb is the third generation in his family of Beene Motor Sales employees. The Beene family is as good to their employees as they are to their customers.
Beene Motor Sales moved their Chevrolet and Oldsmobile dealership from downtown Mexia to their present location in September of 1997. Beene acquired Buick and Pontiac in 1998 and GMC joined the company in 2009.
