Park Place to Build Jaguar Land Rover Dealership in Grapevine

May 17, 2016 07:49AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

If you’re in the market for a luxury vehicle, you’ll soon have more options close to home. Park Place Dealerships is building a Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Grapevine. Slated to open in spring 2017, the facility will sit on eight acres on the south side of Highway 114 near Texan Trail. Park Place will move its Jaguar dealership from Plano to Grapevine and will add the Land Rover brand to its portfolio.

“We currently have two dealerships, as well as a body shop in Grapevine,” said Ken Schnitzer, chairman of Park Place Dealerships, in a press release. “Building a Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Northeast Tarrant County is a natural extension for our company as this market continues to grow. Jaguar has just introduced the new XE and F-PACE, the first SUV in the brand’s history. Land Rover is an iconic brand that introduced the first luxury SUV in the world and has a tremendous following.”

During the construction phase that will begin immediately, the dealership is expected to create 1,000 jobs. Upon opening, Park Place will add new sales and service positions to the dealership. Currently, there are 48 employees at Jaguar Plano.  

Park Place Jaguar Land Rover will feature a two-story, LEED-certified facility. The shop will include 30 service bays and 12 make ready bays. The showroom can accommodate up to 12 new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. A nine-car service drive and 2,800-square-foot carwash will round out the areas dedicated to serving a client’s needs.

“Northeast Tarrant County is a great community to do business and with the opening of Jaguar Land Rover, Park Place will have a larger footprint to serve our growing client base,” said Gary Venner, president of Park Place Dealerships. “I have been fortunate to live and work in this community for more than 30 years. It is an honor to work for a company that stands for integrity, respect and excellence and to serve the clients who become a part of our Park Place family.”

The Park Place brand has become synonymous with offering clients a high quality ownership experience. The company continues to be recognized locally and nationally with top honors for its customer service, sales, and excellent processes. 

Park Place Jaguar Plano has been named a recipient of the 2016 Pride of Jaguar Retailer Excellence five years in a row. Sixteen of the 162 Jaguar dealers across the United Stated were selected based upon being top performers in three core business categories; customer advocacy, sales and business excellence.  Out of the 16, only one Jaguar retailer is awarded the esteemed Marque of Distinction title for being the top retailer for its brand. Jaguar Plano is proud to have earned the Marque of Distinction as the #1 Jaguar dealership in the country three years in a row. 

Texas-based Good, Fulton & Farrell has been named the architectural firm for the project. Hill & Wilkinson has been selected as the general contractor.

Park Place continues to invest in building facilities that are client friendly, energy efficient, and designed with its clients and employees in mind. Each dealership showcases Park Place’s distinctive style in a warm, inviting environment.
