The back-story on Key Cars of Connecticut: a small business success story

August 10, 2020

How did Jill Merriam become the Dealer For The People? It sounds like a stretch, but believe it or not, it all started at Microsoft.

Yes, that Microsoft.

Jill Merriam, half of the brother-sister partnership who run Key Cars of Connecticut, began her career in finance at Microsoft, before thinking long and hard about her family-run business back home. Before long, her brother Jeff partners with Jill to become third-generation business owners, and manage to not just stay afloat, but remain very successful for all these years. This is not a fluke, but a family heritage that goes way back.

In this Nicer, Newer News video, Jill shares the Key Cars history – exactly why and how we are an American success story. It’s a little longer than usual – she had to squeeze in her Grandpa Sam, because he’s the foundation of how Key Cars developed the company mission, and live it every day.

Take a listen:

Providing solutions is what Grandpa Sam did, what Jeff and Jill do, and what the Key Cars team strives for every day.

We’re proud to be third-generation business owners, and prouder to employ over 100 CT residents who live by our mission: to be solution providers and never product pushers, to help everyone who wants to drive a nicer, newer car, and to keep your car safe to drive for as long as you wish to drive it.

Let us know about your favorite family-run business! Email us at wecare@keycars.com, and as always, if there is anything we can help you will, our Key Cars solution providers are here for you, ready to help – masked and six feet socially distanced!

Be well, Connecticut. And thank you for letting Key Cars be your automotive solution providers here in CT.
