DCG Acquisitions, Closes on Lithia Honda of Abilene

(New York, New York – April 5, 2022) DCG Acquisitions, a Dave Cantin Group (DCG) company, today announced the successful completion of Lithia Honda of Abilene to Varela Group Texas, now All Star Honda. DCG represented both parties. Varela Group Texas was established in 1994 in Palestine, Texas and now operates five new car dealerships, as well as farm and recreational vehicle dealership.

It began with All Star Ford Mercury and 28 employees, and today has grown to over 100 employees and five companies.

Lithia Motors’ success and growth rely heavily on those we choose to partner with, and DCG Acquisitions takes that responsibility as seriously as we do. DCG is a trusted partner to Lithia and has successfully represented our acquisition and divestiture needs across the country. Dave and team are trusted advisors and true professionals that we look forward to relying on for years to come.
