Family RV Group, a specialty retailer of new and used recreational vehicles and related services, announced Tuesday the acquisition of Candys Campers Inc.
Candys is comprised of two RV dealerships in Scottsville, KY (Bowling Green), and Murfreesboro, TN (Nashville).
Family RV Group, with nine locations across Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia, is a portfolio company of Kidd & Company LLC, a private investment firm located in Old Greenwich, CT.
Walt Rodgers, Family RV CEO stated, “We are excited to announce the acquisition of Candys Campers and welcome the entire Candys team to our family! This acquisition is another example of our commitment to expand our reach, add more options to our loyal customers and bring our strong customer service mindset to more RV-buying communities.”
“We believe it was a natural fit for Candys to join the Family RV team because they have an excellent reputation among their manufacturing partners, parts distributors and retail customers for delivering best-in-class sales and services for the past 50 years,” said Steven Burnett, Candys founder.
“Family RV Group’s acquisition of Candys Campers continues our strategy of geographic expansion by acquiring quality RV dealerships with brand recognition, high customer loyalty and strong operations,” said Ken Heuer, a KCO principal and Family RV board member.
With this acquisition, Family RV now operates eleven full-service dealerships throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia and continues to expand its market footprint across the Midwest and Southeast. The acquired businesses will operate under the Candy’s Family RV name.
