An exclusive Honda motorcycle and ATV dealership is coming to Granite Falls and is expected to be open by the beginning of 2018, according to a franchise representative.

 

Honda of North Carolina, Inc. plans to build a 20,000-square-foot sales and service facility at 4625 Hickory Boulevard along U.S. 321 South and adjacent to Lake Hickory Veterinary Hospital.

 

Construction is expected to begin in February or March, with a scheduled opening planned for January 2018. Initially, the company plans to have approximately 15 employees, growing to up to 30 within two years.

 

The Honda Powerhouse dealership – one of only 50 in the United States with the exclusive Honda brand – will offer sales and service of motorcycles, ATVs, side by sides, and power equipment.

 

The overall investment, not including inventory, has been projected at $3 million.

 

Representatives from the franchise first contacted the Caldwell EDC and the Town of Granite Falls in the summer of 2015.

 

“This will be a great retail and tourism draw,” Caldwell County Economic Development Commission Executive Director Deborah Murray said. “We are very pleased to have the Honda brand in Caldwell County and believe this will continue to enhance our growing retail base.

 

“The EDC and the Town of Granite Falls Planning Department have worked together to facilitate the opening of this new establishment,” Murray said. “We are very appreciative of the work Granite Falls Town Manager Jerry Church, Town Planner Greg Wilson, Mayor Barry Hayes, the town council, and staff have done to make this project a reality.”
