Our History

Our goal at Cedar City Motor Company is to be an industry leader in providing unmatched quality automotive products and service while continually striving to meet the changing needs of our guests. We implemented the ‘Best Price Philosophy’, which means no haggle and no hassle, in order to provide a more relaxed, honest, and enjoyable car buying experience. It is our mission to exceed our customers’ and employees’ expectations, maintaining their loyalty for a lifetime. We recognize the greatest resource we have is our employees and we never take that for granted. We strive to fill open positions within our ranks first, creating career paths for many of our employees regardless of where they start in our company.

We are very proud of our culture which largely comes from being a part of the Rydell Auto Group. The Rydell Auto Group was founded in 1954 and has grown into a group of 85 stores in 17 states! Our Founder, Leonard Rydell, had many strongly held business and personal philosophies that served him well. These philosophies, known as “Leonardism’s”, help guide us through our daily business and personal decisions. Some of our favorite “Leonardism’s” are…

“Never take advantage of a customer, even if you can.”
“Put yourself in a position to take care of as many people as possible.”
“Seek excellence, and the rest will follow.”


Rydell's Vision & Mission

Rydell’s Vision: To be so effective that we are able to be helpful to others.

Rydell’s Mission:

Industry Leader: Our goal is to be an industry leader in providing unmatched quality automotive products and services.

Meeting Needs: We will constantly strive to meet the changing needs of our customers. Our aim is to provide an atmosphere that encourages employee teamwork, integrity and excellence.

Rydell’s Philosophy

The Rydell philosophy is based on five key areas that we believe are critical to business success:

  • Customer Enthusiasm
  • Employee Satisfaction
  • Financial Performance
  • Market Effectiveness
  • Ongoing Improvement

Our philosophy holds that each area is of equal importance and we continually strive to reach a level of excellence in each area. However, in any planning or decision making process, or in any situation of seeming conflict or contradiction among the five critical areas, Customer Enthusiasm will always carry the most weight.

Rydell Values

Honesty & Integrity

We believe that all decisions are to be made with integrity. Leadership is setting good examples for others to follow, expecting as much from yourself as from others.

Individual Responsibility & Accountability

We believe that we are responsible to satisfy the needs of our customers for all our products and services. Individual accountability for our own performance and for the quality of our products will demonstrate to our customers that we are enthusiastic about them and really care.

Chris Mackert

Production Specialist

"I really enjoy working at Cedar City Motor Company! The team here is fun and very energetic and willing to help all new people through the training process. What I like about working here is the opportunity for advancement. I started here in August of 2017 as a sales consultant and was fairly successful very quickly, then in January of 2018 I was promoted to team leader overseeing the sales team and training new hires. I owe my success to the hands on training and ongoing improvement that Cedar City Motor Company provides. The management team does not settle for the mediocrity or half hearted efforts. If you’re looking for a fast paced fun environment, Cedar City Motor Company is the place for you."
