October 06, 2015 // Franchising.com // PENSACOLA, Fla. – Pensacola-area residents have another option for purchasing used cars now that a new J.D. Byrider dealership is open at 707 N. New Warrington Road. The new location is the 10th J.D. Byrider dealership in Florida, and it is the fourth dealership for longtime franchisees Steve and Jeanne Locklear.
“Pensacola is an exciting community for us to open a J.D. Byrider dealership,” said Michael Anglin, general manager of the new location. “We look forward to bringing industry-leading financing options and the company’s brand promise – to offer good, reliable vehicles to those with less-than-perfect credit – to the area.”
The 20,000 square-foot location will offer used car sales, 10 service bays, affordable pricing on parts and labor and a 24–month/24,000-mile service agreement on all cars purchased. The dealership will also create approximately 15 new jobs.

Byrider business model and operational support, both of which drive our unprecedented store growth.”
