About Us

Team Auto Center History

Team Auto Center is part of the Rydell Group, a dealer group based out of Grand Forks, North Dakota.  The Rydell Group has grown to over 83 dealerships that are located in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, and California.

The Rydell Group is recognized as being the largest dealer group in the United States that operates under a common philosophy, but not under common ownership.  This means each dealership in the Rydell Group is independently owned while operating under the same business philosophy.

Rydell was founded by Leonard Rydell (1913-2000).  Leonard had personal philosophies that became known as "Leonardism's" and guide our group through our daily business decisions.  Our vision statement truly supports what our organization is all about.

"To be so effective that we are able to be helpful to others."

Leonard's son Wes Rydell is all about doing just that. Wes is committed to helping every employee reach their fullest potential. Each of the dealerships is owned and operated by someone who has "grown up" within our organization while learning our operating philosophy. They have started at a Rydell dealership in almost every position including detailers, reconditioning department managers, service technicians, parts department managers, finance and insurance department managers, sales consultants, used car managers, and sales managers.

It is our goal to be an industry leader in providing unmatched quality at our dealerships.
