Matt Bredemeier, GM/Owner

Chad Vacura, General Sales Manager

I have been a professional sales consultant in the Grand Forks and East Grand Forks area for over 20years. I am an enthusiastic part of our community that enjoys Golf, Soccer, Hockey, Biking, and swimming/boating the lakes with my wife, Tania, our 4 children and 2 grand children. I have been with the Grand Forks Kia team since the doors opened! We have a slogan here, "Better people, better products, better prices" and I feel that this slogan is very important. I want my customers to feel like they got the ultimate car buying experience. I have sold customers from all around the US and Canada that still contact me today for all their vehicles because of their buying experience. I would like to invite you in so you can experience the difference!
