Our History

Brian J. Bemis began his career in the automotive industry at the age of 14. According to Brian Bemis,  "There's no better place to start in the car business than washing cars and getting them ready for customers. You get to be in touch with everyone inside the dealership....sales people, service, ownership." At the age of 18, Brian Bemis was promoted to car sales and never looked back. In 1984 he purchased Kishwaukee Dodge in Sycamore and currently has 11 franchises including domestic, European, and Asian manufacturers in multiple cities. Since 1984, Brian Bemis Automotive Group has grown to 4 locations in 2 cities; Sycamore and DeKalb with over 200 employees.

Our Customers 

While we open our doors to welcome new customers daily, we have a number of loyal relationships with third-generation Bemis family customers who have purchased over a dozen cars from our dealerships. To us, that says something.

President Brian Bemis has always emphasized the importance of measuring customer satisfaction every single day. He states, "The simple fact is that we need to keep customers better than happy...we need their experience to be surprisingly good, better than they can find elsewhere." 

Our Community

The Brian Bemis family lives in the communities in which the Brian Bemis Family car dealerships operate. As a family, participating and investing in the future of the community is a priority. Whether through anonymous donations, community outreach, parades, cancer fundraisers, local schools or just helping out one of the many local organizations, we are proud to be involved. In 2012 we developed The Brian Bemis Family Foundation to focus on grants, scholarships and community enrichment.
