Mighty recently added new franchise partners in four U.S. markets. Each franchise, all new car dealership groups, has established a new centralized Mighty distribution division within their company, which enables them to offer Mighty’s signature inventory management services and quality products to wholesale customers as well as to their own dealerships.

With 15 dealerships serving Oklahoma City, Edmond, Moore and Tulsa, the dealership aligned with Mighty to support its “all makes, all models” service focus, reduce reconditioning costs and better penetrate the growing wholesale market. The Mighty franchise will operate from a separate warehouse facility in Oklahoma City.

Founded in 1998, the Stivers dealership group has locations in Alabama and Georgia offering Ford, Lincoln and Subaru.
