Frank Ancona Honda is celebrating its 50 year anniversary in Olathe, Kansas this year. The dealership, originally founded in Northeast Kansas City, started out with multiple motorcycle stores until Frank Ancona relocated it to Olathe in June 18, 1986 and changed the name to Frank Ancona Honda. During that time, the dealership was an Olathe destination – surrounded by farmland and a small population. Now, the bustling Olathe-area has a population of more than 125,000, is the fourth largest city in the Kansas City metro and has tons of commerce surrounding the dealership. Michael, Frank’s son, who grew up with five sisters, assumed leadership of Frank Ancona Honda after working with his father since the age of 12 on miscellaneous projects such as clean up, parts deployment, service runner and sales. The money he earned during the summers with his dad paid for his way through KU.
