The Hoffman Family

Dealership History

With the intent of building and servicing Ford race cars, Hoffman Ford was originally founded in the late 1940's by Earl Hoffman Sr. in Highspire, PA. Mr. Hoffman, Sr. worked closely with former Ford President Lee Iacocca to convert the operation into an official Ford dealership in 1953. Earl Hoffman, Jr. joined the business in 1963 upon his graduation from Penn State University and immediately began learning the business.

Due to its close proximity to the Susquehanna River, Hoffman Ford was severely damaged by Hurricane Agnes floodwaters in 1972, and again by another storm in 1975. In 1976, the decision was made to move the dealership from Highspire to its current location in Colonial Park, where we knew it could compete with the other car dealerships in Harrisburg, PA.

Construction took over a year to complete and the new Hoffman Ford was opened in 1978. As car dealerships in Harrisburg, PA continued to grow over the next few decades, our dealership also underwent numerous renovations and expansions to meet the needs of our customers. Earl Hoffman, Sr. retired from daily operations in the late 90's and Earl Hoffman, Jr. assumed the position of President/CEO of the company. The third generation of the Hoffman Family began their involvement with the business in mid-2010 and again in late 2012. For an expansive inventory and fabulous service, stop by Hoffman Ford today!
