11 Locations Across Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina
Krause Auto Group is a collection of family-owned dealerships across Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
Founded in 1991, we have now grown to 11 dealerships and over 900 employees across three states. We take pride in the long-term success of our employees.
We have continued to grow in both robust and challenging times— we believe in long-term employees and promoting from within whenever possible. The growth of our employees is as important to us as the growth of the company.
In 2009 Vernon Krause and Dan Parks purchased Anderson Ford. They resurrected the dealership using the strong vision and family values that have made them so successful. Since taking ownership of the dealership Vernon and Dan have added a huge 20,000 Square Foot Body Shop facility. We believe the family values and years of successful business ownership that we bring to the dealership allows us to support and empower our employees to further their careers.
With youth sports teams being such a part of the Anderson community, we are happy to sponsor several local schools and organizations with uniforms and gear! Giving back to the community we work in is at the heart of our business.
Angela Krause Ford—formerly Cherokee Ford—was renamed for Vernon and Marie Krause's youngest daughter, Angela, who lost her courageous battle with cancer in February of 2015. Angela was the General Manager of Cherokee Ford-Lincoln of Alpharetta after starting her career at Cherokee Ford in Woodstock. The Krause family wanted to honor Angela's legacy by renaming our dealerships to reflect Angela's contributions and legacy.
Asheville Ford was founded in 2007 by Vernon Krause and Dan Parks. The original location was located in the heart of downtown Asheville. We moved the location to a brand new facility on Brevard Rd across the street from the Farmers Market and down the road from the Outlet Mall. We have tons of growth opportunities within our dealership, with very dedicated and hardworking coworkers.
We are proud of our partnerships with local charities and community organizations. Specifically the Paul Briggs Memorial Rodeo. Paul Briggs was a valued employee of Asheville Ford, who lost his battle with Cancer. This event provides a memorial scholarship, in Paul's name, to a local deserving recipient.

Hyundai of North Charleston has been in business since June 6, 2017 when the dealership was purchased from Hendrick Automotive Group. Although starting a new business and changing the dealership computer system was challenging, we hit the road running and we have not slowed down since! The Charleston area has welcomed us with open arms and new customers show up at our dealership every day! Perhaps it is the way we operate by putting customers and employees first. Our slogan, after all, is “It’s All About You!”
