About Napleton's Arlington Heights Subaru - Your Arlington Heights Subaru Dealer

The Napleton Family History:

     When Grandpa Ed Napleton opened his first Buick store in 1931, he had one guiding business principle: common courtesy. That is, the customer always comes first. The 'Family Secret' must count for something: like 300,000 plus satisfied customers. Underscoring that secret's importance is the fact that about 67% of Napleton customers are repeat customers. It's readily apparent that Grandpa Ed Napleton was onto something big.

     Ed Napleton had one son, Francis, who has worked continuously in the family business since 1940. The family then obtained a DeSoto dealership followed by a Chrysler Plymouth franchise. In 1960, Ed semi-retired from the auto business secure in the knowledge of a job well done.

     Fran Napleton became the driving force for the family. It was then that Fran Napleton saw major opportunities to expand on what his father had started. Thanks to Fran's foresight, hard work & sacrifice, another store was obtained in 1976. Fran's diligence and commitment have earned the respect of his six sons, five of whom have followed in his footsteps by distinguishing themselves as leaders and innovators in the retail automobile business.

     Today, Napleton dealerships number 24 franchises and 18 state-of-the-art sales & service facilities, providing employment for over 600 men and women. The cars sold by the Napleton's have gone from crank starters & solid tires to air bags & ABS, from rumble seats to integrated child seats. Times change but one thing hasn't: common courtesy.

     The Napleton's see no reason to change. After all, we'd like to stay in business another 65 years and continue the legacy of Ed Napleton. He was quite a guy.
