Broadway Ford plans new building behind present site

Ann-Michelle Jones
As soon as weather permits, probably late March or early April, Broadway Ford will be breaking ground on a new building behind the West Broadway building they've been in since 1984.

The owners have been talking about a new showroom and servies department for several years, said Ann-Michelle Jones, Broadway Ford's social media and e-commerce director. There was no desire to leave where they've been ("We kind of like where we are," she said), but they are looking forward to a modern new building with a service department twice the size of what they have. They anticipate being open in early 2015.

Preliminary site plans have been submitted to the city of Idaho Falls. Jones didn't have an exact square footage figure to report. "It will be just bigger and better," she said.

For the second straight year, Broadway Ford was recently named Idaho's 2014 Dealer of the Year by dealerrater.com. The ratings are based on online ratings and reviews.
