After almost 30 years in the car business working for others, Marco Abraham is starting his own used car dealership.
“The time is right,” he says. “This business is going to be … a successful business.”
He’s opening in two or three weeks at 5927 E. Kellogg, which is between Edgemoor and Woodlawn.
The business, which will have an inventory of about 150 cars, trucks and SUVs, will be called Wichita Auto Plaza.
“We’re looking forward to getting the license and getting in business,” Abraham says.
The company will have five employees to start. Abraham says the property is ideal because road construction that had been going on in that area of Kellogg is now complete.
“People got shy from that area,” he says. “But now it’s done, so I think … business is going to be back the way it was. … I truly believe that. That’s why I’m taking a chance. It’s a chance to build something here.”
