Rich & Gardner’s Renovation of Burdick Lexus

Customers at Burdick Lexus may have recently noticed a sleek new look at the Cicero, NY store. 

The brand-new renovation, completed in December of 2021 by Rich and Gardner, may not have changed the world-class customer service always provided at the new and pre-owned Lexus dealership, but community feedback on the refreshed building has been extremely positive — and the ownership and sales team members love it, too. 

Like many of the best Rich and Gardner construction, renovation, design/build, or general contracting projects, the renovation of Burdick Lexus was more than just another job. It also represented the chance to partner with a family business with history, dedication, and company values that reflect those of Rich and Gardner. 

Both Burdick Lexus and Rich and Gardner had humble beginnings, both originating with small but passionate teams whose hard work and expertise helped both companies grow and prosper over the years. Furthermore, both companies prioritize being attentive to the value of each team member and patron.

Renovation, Transformation…and What Stays the Same

During the renovation of Burdick Lexus, project manager and President of Rich and Gardner Rob Swietoniowski upheld our uncompromising commitment to responding to the needs and concerns of our clients. 

That means that during every step of the project, from start to finish, Swietoniowski was not only keeping the project running smoothly, on time, and within budget — he also maintained consistent communication with the team at Burdick Lexus, to keep everyone on the same page and ensure that every detail was attended to in accordance with the client’s original vision. 

For every member of the Rich and Gardner team, keeping the needs of our clients at the forefront of everything we do is a routine part of how we approach any project, no matter the scale. 

In this way, the values we bring to our work at Rich and Gardner align perfectly with those of Burdick Lexus. Many things change during a renovation (not to mention during decades in business). However, with a good company, run by an experienced and committed group of experts, the important things always stay the same.

In the case of Burdick Lexus, recognizing the importance of each employee and customer has always made the difference…and no renovation will change that. 

More About Burdick Lexus

The story of Burdick Lexus begins in 1937 when Grant and Glenn Burdick opened a gas station in North Syracuse and named it “Grant A. Burdick and Sons.” Thus began the Burdick family business, now in its fourth generation. 

By 1943, the company was buying and selling cars; after World War II, one of the Burdick sons suggested moving the sales business to a separate site. Within a few short years, the sales business had expanded to include additional automobile models and multiple locations. 

These days, David and Kevin Burdick’s dealerships have grown to more than 100 employees, and the franchises now include Toyota, Scion, BMW, Lexus, and Ford. 

In fact, Rich and Gardner have partnered with the Burdick family in the past; we have also previously been proud to renovate their BMW franchise dealership

The Burdick Lexus facility, located at 5947 East Circle Drive in Cicero, is known in the area for providing a vast selection of new and pre-owned vehicles, exceptional car care, and a friendly and knowledgeable sales staff. The showroom is well-stocked with cars, trucks, and SUVs in inventory, and Burdick dealerships always offer competitive prices on every pre-owned model for sale on the lot. 

Add in a beautiful new renovation from Rich and Gardner, and it’s easy to see why customers love to visit the dealership.
