Brandon Twp.-Not only does Ford have a better idea—locally it's going to be bigger now, too.

Randy Wise Ford-Ortonville announced last month that a new showroom and service area will be constructed at their current location, 986 S. Ortonville Road. The new facility will provide more room for new and used vehicles on site in addition to more service bays. Once the new building is constructed the existing building will be razed.

"We are looking forward to being a part of the community for a long time," said Joe Greene, manager. "Randy Wise Ford is committed to providing the Brandon and Groveland township area with the finest in Ford products and a first class service facility to back that up. Ford Motor Company continues to set high standards for its vehicles and that is evident with some of our new vehicles, including the Ford Focus and Ford Escape."

Randy Wise, which includes five locations in southeast Michigan, purchased the Ortonville location from Arrant Ford in 2004.

On Oct. 6, community members are invited to test-drive a variety of 2012 Ford vehicles for the Drive One 4 UR School event. Ford Motor Company and Randy Wise Ford of Ortonville will donate $20 to Brandon High School for each person who takes a test-drive in a new Ford. In total, as much as $6,000 could be earned for the Blackhawks. Drivers must be 18 years of age or older and must have a valid driver's license.

"The Drive One 4 UR School event is a great way to check out some of our new vehicles and help out Brandon High School," said Greene.
