Family-owned and operated Day Bros RV, based in London, Kentucky, is expanding into Georgia with the acquisition of the Alliance Coach RV Sales & Service facility in Lake Park.
Founded in 1995, Day Bros is known for its large selection of new and used RVS. Under the guidance of Kenny Day, the company has become one of the fastest-growing family-owned dealerships in the U.S.
Alliance Coach President Alan Shapiro stated he is happy to see the Georgia facility passed on to Day Bros because of the way the company does business. Day Bros focuses on building life-long customer relationships with Southern hospitality and is keeping the current team of employees on as it moves forward, according to the company.
“This move will benefit everyone involved,” Shapiro says. “Day Bros has a great opportunity for growth in a new market and now we can focus on our operations in Wildwood, Florida, and the expansion coming in 2018.”
