Burritt Motors’ history dates back to 1955 in Hannibal when Rich’s great grandfather, Elmer O. Burritt, purchased a Chevrolet franchise that he operated until 1963.
To expand in a larger market, Rich’s grandfather, 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 Route 104, which underwent a $2.5 million expansion and renovation in 2013.
Rich follows his father, Chris, who ran the business for the past 38 years.
The dealership celebrates its 61st anniversary this year and can be reached at (315) 343-8948, or www.burrittmotors.com
