Ricart_imports_800_logo Ricart Ford began as a dream in 1953, with a handful of Fords pretty much in front of the Ricart house in Canal Winchester, Ohio. Paul F. Ricart Sr. got the ball rolling, sealing deals with a handshake and personally standing behind every car sold, a tradition that continues at Ricart today.

Over the years, the Ricart Family grew, and grew up, with Fred and Rhett following their father into the family business, and guiding Ricart Automotive as it grew to be the highest volume Ford store in the nation and a recognized name across the land, without losing the hometown values and outlook which Paul Sr. instilled in his children and in the store he founded.

Ricart Along the way, Ricart Automotive has been an annual recipient of the “Consumer’s Choice Award” and “Blue Oval Certification” for excellence in customer satisfaction, and has won numerous other industry awards. Ricart Automotive has sold hundreds of thousands of vehicles over the years, and now with eight manufacturers and a complete commercial division, is poised to continue providing the same family attention and service folks have grown to expect for over fifty years.

Fred Ricart’s decision to partner with Ask Patty reflects the kind of forward thinking needed to deliver consistent outstanding results in customer satisfaction and sales growth to this important consumer segment.

In a show of extra support, Lori Tabar, who has been a part of the Ricart Administrative Team for over twenty years, has become a member of the Ask Patty Advisory Panel of Expert women. In her automotive advisory role, Tabar will respond to questions from consumer women on automotive related topics via the website.
