Maddie’s Motorsports Company Profile
Maddie’s Motorsports is a power sports dealer in Dansville, New York. The company is family-owned by husband-and-wife team Graham and Mary Marcus. The couple considers themselves avid motorsports enthusiasts who take pride in understanding their clients’ needs and providing great customer service. They offer motorsports sales, parts, and service, including tune-ups, preventive maintenance, and repairs.
Graham and Mary attribute most of their success in the region to keeping a locally-owned and small town feeling to the dealership. They want customers to feel comfortable making potentially long treks to Upstate New York looking for good deals and great service.
History of Maddie’s Motorsports
Graham and Mary each grew up working in family businesses. Graham’s family owns a wholesale tree farm. Maddie helped manage a family restaurant with her father until his retirement. Graham began working on his family’s farm after he graduated from college and later became the manager. The business began growing and evolving over time, particularly after the addition of Cub Cadet lawn and garden equipment.
As the sales of Cub Cadet garden equipment began to rise, the family eventually cut out the plants and garden supplies entirely. In 2008, the farm added snowmobiles, Polaris ATVs, and side-by-sides to their inventory, and they later added Victory Motorcycles in 2010. It quickly became clear that the power sports side of the business was morphing into its own entity.
Graham and Mary purchased the power sports side of the farm from Marcus’s family in 2012. They renamed it Maddie’s Motorsports in honor of their daughter Madeline. They then also relocated the dealership to a 16,000 square foot facility in Danville, New York. Maddie only worked at the dealership part-time until her father retired from the restaurant business. After she sold the restaurant, she began working at the dealership full-time alongside her husband.
Maddie’s Motor Sports kept the Cub Cadet Brand on the lawn and garden side of the dealership, as well as Dixie Chopper and Scag Power Equipment. On the power sports side of the business, they began to carry ATVs, side-by-sides, motorcycles, and snowmobiles. With the addition of such a variety of motorsports vehicles, Maddie’s Motorsports has become a successful dealership year-round and among a wide range of enthusiasts. While the former farm business was profitable mostly only during spring and summer, Maddie’s is able to sell to consumers throughout fall and winter as well.
Growing the Company
The motorcycle brands featured at Maddie’s are Polaris, Slingshot, Victory, Can-Am, KTM, and finally Indian. Once they became an official dealer for Indian motorcycles, they began proudly toting the fact that they are now home to the Mad Max Indian Motorcycle. The inclusion of motorcycles has allowed Maddie’s Motor Sports to attract avid motorcyclists. While bike sales account for only 8% of the deanship’s sales, that portion of the business is growing by leaps and bounds. The company’s current biggest percentages of sales are from ATVs and side-by-sides.
With regard to the Polaris brand, Maddie’s Motorsports is the largest volume side-by-side dealer in New York, as well as a top 10 side-by-side dealer in the Northwest Region. They are a top 5 Ranger dealer in the Northeast and one of the top 15 overall dealerships in the same region. They have won several awards and honors, including a VIP Award from Polaris and a Viper Award. The service department has a gold certification for Polaris ATVs and snowmobiles, Victory, and Ranger. They also have silver certification for Slingshot. They were named a Powersports Business Power 50 dealer in 2016 for the first time.
To make room for their ever-expanding product line, Maddie’s Motorsports is expanding. They have added around 8,000 square feet onto the dealership, the majority of which for the purpose of pure showroom space. The merchandise on display in the showroom will rotate out based upon season and which vehicles are popular during certain times of the year. The showroom will allow Maddie’s to not only display vehicles but also parts, accessories, and whole goods.
The company recently purchased O’Neill Sales, Inc. in Farmington, New York to use as their second location. Like Maddie’s Motorsports, O’Neill was a family owned and operated local business, and Maddie’s plans to keep all of O’Neill’s employees. Having two dealerships in the area will expand Maddie’s presence, allowing it an even greater opportunity to become a household name among locals.
The company has also increased the number of service technicians on staff. This will allow Maddie’s Motorsports to become a more well-rounded and functioning dealership. They are now better equipped to provide customers with the best possible service experience.
Maddie’s Motorsports prides itself in selling toys to adults. They carry an array of name brand power sports “toys”, in addition to pre-owned vehicles, parts, service, and accessories. The company has recently become an official dealer for Mad Max Indian Motorcycle.
