    Mark Wahlberg Opens 6th Ohio Dealership

    Mark Wahlberg's automotive empire keeps expanding. The actor, producer and businessman recently opened his 6th dealership in Ohio.  The latest addition is a second Mark Wahlberg Airstream & RV dealership location that opened earlier this month.  Right now the main facility is under construction so the dealership is operating in a smaller building for now.  

    It's the actor's sixth dealership in Ohio with his business partner, veteran automotive dealer Jay Feldman of Feldman Automotive Group.  Together, they now operate four Mark Wahlberg-branded dealerships in the Columbus area and two in the Cleveland area:

    • Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet (2018)-Columbus
    • Mark Wahlberg Buick-GMC (2020)-Columbus
    • Mark Wahlberg Airstream/RV Center (2020)-Columbus
    • Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet of Worthington (2020)
    • Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet of Avon (2021)
    • Mark Wahlberg Airstream/RV Center (2021)-Cleveland (Lorain)

    A Feldman Automotive press release says Airstream Founder Wally Byam's goal was to "strive endlessly to stir the venturesome spirit that moves you to follow a rainbow to its end…and thus make your travel dreams come true." 

    Wahlberg, too, shares a passion for adventure and family. He said, "I like to tackle projects that offer connections to things I cherish." These common traits are why Wahlberg teamed up with Airstream and launched Mark Wahlberg Airstream Columbus in 2020 and Mark Wahlberg Airstream Cleveland in 2021.

    "I've grown to love being part of the growing Ohio business community," added Wahlberg.  "We are seeing an enthusiastic spike in RV and automobile sales in the State and we're glad to help our customers find their dream vehicles in both Columbus and Cleveland."

    Feldman Automotive says that according to market research firm Ipsos, RV ownership is at a record high with 11.2 million households owning an RV in 2021, up 62% over 6.9 million households in 2001 and 26% more than 8.9 million RV-owning households in 2011.

    "More and more of our customers are taking control of their vacation plans and hitting the road for travel," said Feldman. "Our growing roster of dealerships now offer a wide variety of RV options to make these incredible getaways possible."

    This isn't the first business partnership between Wahlberg and Feldman. They're also partners in several Wahlburgers restaurants.
