Who is Bobby Cheeseman?
Bobby Cheeseman, Owner & Operator, Cheeseman's Automotive
Bobby hasn't always been successful in "the car business". The success he's had in the automotive industry just started a little over six years ago. After working for John Hancock securities for three years, he decided that the retirement planning business was not his passion. From this decision Cheeseman's Automotive was formed.
As crazy as it may sound, you don't need a wad of cash in your pocket to start your own pre-owned automotive dealership. Bobby definitely didn't! $7,000 in debt, $1,000 cash in his pocket and a will to succeed. He was looking to make a life change. He was ready to marry the love of his life, and there was no way he could continue down the path he was on, and he knew the time was now!
Six years later, Cheeseman's Automotive is a successful pre-owned automotive dealership nestled in the little town of Stapleton, Alabama. Bobby has had such great success with Cheeseman's that he was able to purchase a new location six months ago and has a constant changing flow of 25-30 cars on his lot at all times with a sales staff to help with any customer needs.
