Greg Bruner, owner and general manager, stated, “It makes us proud that our community and our employees allow us to achieve such high expectations. We would like for our customers to leave completely satisfied every time, and I’m glad that GM sees that in our dealership.”
About the Bruner Family:
Dwain and Greg Bruner received the prestigious Family Business of the Year Award presented by Baylor University in November 2011. Charlie Bruner was the first family member in the auto-related industry, opening a full-service gas station in Kerens, TX, in 1923. In 1928, his son Vernon added Chevrolet sales and began what is now an 85-year-old love affair between the Bruners and Chevy.
In 1962, Vernon’s son Dwain opened his own dealership, Dwain Bruner Chevrolet, in Wolfe City, TX. By 1969 he had captured the attention of General Motors, which convinced him to move to Stephenville and acquire the local Chevrolet dealership. That dealership has received numerous performance awards from both Chevrolet and General Motors.
2007 saw the Bruner family acquire the Chevrolet and Toyota dealerships in Brownwood. The Bruners opened the new General Motors dealership in August and the new Toyota dealership in September.
Today the Bruners have new car operations in Stephenville (8 brands: Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, Buick, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM) and Brown County (5 brands: Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, Buick, and Toyota). Bruner Motors also operates a lube center in Glen Rose and a high-technology car wash, The Car Wash at Bruner’s, in Stephenville.
Bruner Motors has received numerous General Motors honors including Leaders of Distinction, Genuine Leader Mark of Excellence (numerous times), and World Class Customer Satisfaction awards. The Texas Automobile Dealers Association presented its prestigious Family Business Award to the Bruners, recognizing 75 years of excellent service in 2005.
Dwain Bruner is CEO of Bruner Auto Family and Greg Bruner is President. Recently Greg Bruner celebrated 25 years as a Chevrolet dealer.
Since 1928, four generations of Bruners have owned and operated Chevrolet dealerships in Texas.
