Burritt Motors recently received the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award, it was announced by Chris Burritt, owner.
“We’re honored to have received this award,” Burritt said. My son and co-owner Rich and I salute the hard work, innovative spirit, and tremendous support of our Burritt Motors team that made this award possible.”
Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Chris’ grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963. To expand in a larger market, Chris’ father, Richard, purchased the assets of a Chevrolet dealership that had been located on Oswego’s East Third Street. About a year later, he built the present dealership on Rt. 104, which underwent a $2.5 million expansion and renovation last year. The dealership celebrates its 58th anniversary this year and can be reached at (315) 343-8948, or www.burrittmotors.com.
