A John Deere dealer, for most of our customers, is the true face of our company. Each dealership is independently owned, hiring local employees who bring John Deere values to life. That's important. Because our dealerships must be as diverse as the communities they serve.
You'll find dealerships worldwide that provide equipment and services for the agricultural business, industrial applications, or for homeowners. Many have a combination of those. Yet all share the same themes of quality and commitment for the John Deere customer.
John Deere dealers must understand and respond to their local customers needs. This is why we take great strides in recruiting high-caliber individuals with diverse backgrounds to take on the John Deere brand. In fact, in the United States, John Deere dealerships are owned and operated by people of African-American, American Indian, Asian and Hispanic decent. A significant number of dealerships are owned by women.
Independently Owned Dealerships
Most John Deere dealerships are independently owned and are not company stores or franchises. John Deere equipment is sold to distributors, dealers, and associated companies for resale around the world.
Minimum Equity Requirements
Investment in a John Deere dealership can be both rewarding and challenging. It requires someone with strong management skills and keen business acumen. Understanding of the retail business trade is a must; retail management experience is preferable. Other requirements include excellent people skills, a strong work ethic, and sound communication skills.
Silent investors, of course, are always welcome.
