Business going well at Ed Koehn Chevrolet  An open  house at Ed Koehn Chevrolet, 4650 14 Mile Road, proved auto and elegance go well together. With a crowd during the entire two and a half hour event visitors mingled, enjoyed fantastic food by Twisted Vine, and had a chance to visit with Ed Koehn of Ed Koehn Ford in Greenville, as well as his son, Aaron, in charge of the dealership they purchased in February of this year. John Decker, former owner, was among the visitors and couldn’t be happier the operations are going very well. He was glad to accept “a generous offer to go away,” seven months ago. The dealership employs five salespeople with more planned to bring on. There are also three office staff, two service techs, a tech manager and just opened a new quick oil change facility. “This is a great place to work,” said James Israels who came to the dealership after Israels in Grand Rapids closed.”It’s great to be with another family company. We have fun customers and the Koehns are good people to work with.”
