Ray Childress Auto Group, L.P. Company Profile
The Ray Childress Auto Group rushes hatchbacks and plenty of other cars out of its four dealerships. The company operates the Lawrence Marshall family of car dealerships in Texas. The Group of four was founded in the 1950s when Lawrence Marshall bought a small Chevrolet dealership in Hempstead, Texas, some 50 miles outside of Houston, and set out to "clobber big city prices." Acquired in 1999 by former Houston Oilers defensive lineman Ray Childress, the Group includes franchises for Ford, Hyundai, and Toyota brands. No longer all that separate from the "big city," Lawrence Marshall Chevrolet is one of the largest dealerships in the Houston area, and one of the largest Chevy dealers in the country.
