Company Summary

Jeanie's Auto Sales was created to offer an alternative to the usual intimidating, male-dominated used car dealership. Women-owned businesses are a vast minority in the automotive industry, with only 2.8% of US dealerships owned by women, even though women represent 52% of all car purchases, and influence 85% of all car purchases. Our target market is women and first-time buyers. We specialize in clean reliable cars in the $2000-$7000 range.
