Since its modest beginnings as a single dealership in Gretna in 1983, the Ray Brandt Auto Group has expanded, now encompassing 13 dealerships and six collision centers throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. The Group consistently earns prestigious awards, acknowledging its dedication to providing exceptional customer satisfaction.

However, this is not merely a tale of a thriving business. The Ray Brandt Auto Group has forged deep connections with the community where it all began. Going above and beyond their economic impact of serving customers in Jefferson Parish and employing over 600 individuals, the Group acts as a supportive neighbor, extending a helping hand whenever possible.

“When it comes to Jefferson Parish, it truly holds a special place in our hearts,” says CEO Jessica Brandt. “It’s our home, our workplace, and the very foundation of our children’s education and healthcare.”

Understanding that the success of the Auto Group is tied to the success of the community, Brandt and her team contribute to various organizations focusing on education and health. Their support includes notable institutions such as St. Michael’s Special School, St. Mary’s Dominican, Archbishop Chapelle, Archbishop Rummel, Children’s Hospital New Orleans, West Jefferson Medical Center, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Heart Association, the National WWII Museum, and more.

“We take great pride in our affiliation with Jefferson Parish,” said Brandt. “Our ongoing investment in this community is not only the right thing to do; it benefits us all in the long run. We are committed to ensuring the continued prosperity of this parish for generations to come.”

With a steadfast dedication to their customers and a profound sense of responsibility to the community, the Ray Brandt Auto Group is a shining example of business leadership intertwined with community service. As they accelerate toward an even brighter future, they invite everyone to join them on this journey, where success and community well-being merge for the benefit of all.
