Longtime Rome auto dealer Bob Williams said the publicity about a failed deal to sell his dealership to a Cartersville car dealer opened the door to a deal that has been consummated with the Greenway Auto Group, based in Florida.
“It’s done, signed, sealed and delivered, it’s done,” Williams said Wednesday morning. “It’s going to take a week to ten days to clean all of our stuff up and get it cleared out. They’re trying to get all of their people in, their computers are running so I just grabbed the phone for them.”
Williams confirmed that some of the static created by the deal with Terry Reid that fell through drew the attention of the Greenway management.
Greenway, as of Wednesday, has about 50 dealerships across the Southeast.
“This is their first Georgia dealership,” Williams said. “They have three or four dealerships in China.”
Williams said he had a farm and is going to do some tinkering with it as well as continuing his involvement with the sports programs at Berry College.
“I’ve got stuff planned to do,” Williams said.
