Ed Voyles Automotive Group is proud to announce that it has been named one of Cobb’s Top 25 Small Businesses of the Year by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Businesses were nominated earlier this year, and after a review by an independent panel of judges, Ed Voyles Automotive Group was selected as one of the Top 25 companies. Candidates were evaluated based on the criteria published by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Those criteria include staying power, growth in number of employees, increase in sales or unit volume, current and past financial standing, innovative products and services, response to adversity, evidence of contributions to aid community projects and overall management philosophy.
Ed Voyles Automotive Group was started by Ed Voyles, who opened his first dealership in East Point, Georgia in 1952. Today, the Ed Voyles Automotive Group operates nine franchises — Acura, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram — with eight of those located in Cobb County. They have nearly 500 employees.
The Top 25 will be recognized at the Cobb Chamber’s First Monday Breakfast on June 2. The Cobb Chamber of Commerce represents Cobb County’s diverse, dynamic business community. The Cobb Chamber is a member-supported business organization working to maintain a healthy economy by bringing business and industry to the area, helping established firms grow and building the community through outreach and service.
