LLC (KCO), a private investment firm located in Old Greenwich, Conn..
Walt Rodgers, Family RV CEO, stated, “We are excited to announce the acquisition of Candys Campers and welcome the entire Candys team to our family. This acquisition is another example of our commitment to expand our reach, add more options to our loyal customers and bring our strong customer service mindset to more RV-buying communities.”
“We believe it was a natural fit for Candys to join the Family RV team because they have an excellent reputation among their manufacturing partners, parts distributors and retail customers for delivering best-in-class sales and services for the past 50 years,” said Steven Burnett, Candys founder.
With this acquisition, Family RV now operates eleven full-service dealerships and continues to expand its market footprint across the Midwest and Southeast. The acquired businesses will operate under the Candy’s Family RV name.
