Texas's Only Polaris Hall of Fame Dealer!
Gene and Jackie Anderson grew their modest, suburban Houston lawn & garden dealership into a Polaris Hall of Fame business with their passion for riding Polaris products, commitment to customer service, and by delivering on their slogan, "Ride Before You Buy!" Gene's became a Polaris dealer in the late 1980s and achieved tremendous sales success with Polaris watercraft and off-road vehicles. Customers got to test Polaris watercraft on the lake directly behind the dealership, and they can ride Polaris ORVs in the woods on the property - before they buy. Gene's has an experienced, engaged, and knowledgeable staff that loves to ride and goes the extra mile to ensure customers' vehicles are ready and properly accessorized for work, hunting, or mudding. Led by General Manager Brian Cummings, who started working at Gene's in 1990, the dealership maintains a wealth of sales and inventory analytics to aid in forecasting, budgeting and inventory control. Brian manages the business with his wife Jena, the Andersons' daughter who oversees dealership accounting. Long-time employee Matt Anderson, the Anderson's son, works with marine products and the dealership's exceptional service department.
