There’s nothing more fun than watching some good ole’ fashioned Tee-Ball. The Busam Subaru sponsored Sharonville Shooting Stars were in action last night against Sharonville Ameristop.

One of many close plays during a great game!

The co-ed league is made up of 5 and 6 year olds playing their hearts out. These kids love it, and are passionate just like 5 or 6 year old should be. On one particular play a Shooting Star was called. As she walked off the field I could see her eyes swelling up, she walked over to her mom and started balling… her mom gave her a big hug and said, “it’s ok, everybody gets out sooner or later!”

These parents are the kind you want coaching your child’s team. Coaches Brian Williams and Kelly Meyer are awesome with the kids. Everything always positive, encouraging, and ensuring everyone is having a great time!

The league is structured to be instructional. Teams consist of 10-11 players. Everyone bats and everyone plays the field each inning. The ball is teed up each time by a coach who stays at home base. The batting team also has 1st and 3rd base coaches. For the fielding team 3-4 coaches in the field to control the chaos.

The quote of the night goes to two parents. I heard from a distance…

Parent 1 – “No playing in the dirt”

Parent 2 – (In a little girl’s voice) “But Daddy, that’s the best part!”

Check out some action shots from the game!

Becoming a Part of the Busam Family

So excited for our first official guest blog. Tammy Coffin-Hana is a former employee at Busam, who has since moved on to pursue a career as a copywriter.  Check here out at Copy Cats, Inc.


In the wake of a bad economy and a need for a better vehicle, many are left not knowing where to turn.  Consumers do want not only a car with great gas mileage and reliability, but they want to be able to buy from someone they can trust. They can most certainly trust Busam Nissan, Subaru/Suzuki.

Busam Nissan GM says "Thumbs Up!"

Having worked for them a few years ago, I can personally attest to the effort behind the business.  The Busam family has been in this business since 1909, and is a household name in Cincinnati.  Time and again I saw repeat business coming in from friends and family of previous buyers with the Busam dealerships.  Most of all, I got the pleasure of meeting some of the buyers and finding out what they had to say.  The echoing reply was, “I have been coming here for years and I wouldn’t buy a car anywhere else.”  This is something that instilled confidence in me to want to be a part of their business.

Growing up with a dad who was in the car business, I learned a lot about how trust is everything.  Dad would always tell me, “If people don’t trust you, they don’t buy from you”, and that statement has continued to stick with me.  When I first went to work for the Busam’s in 2007, I found out that the owner had the same idea.

John Busam didn’t believe that people would just walk onto the showroom floor and just pick out a car and drive it off the lot.  He wanted people to come in to the showroom, and be greeted by staff who would make them feel at home and guide the buyer through the whole process.  Mr. Busam wants the buyer to be educated about the vehicle they are buying, and leave knowing they bought a great quality vehicle for the best value.  Mr. Busam wants his customers to know that when they have questions, they can just pick up the phone and call at anytime.

Buying a car at Busam Nissan, or Subaru/Suzuki means becoming a part of the Busam family.  At this store you won’t find any buyers who just write checks and never return.  Buyers here are buyers for life, and that is the goal for this store because the family wants this business to grow and flourish.   A business that stands the test of time for over 100 years is a business anyone would want to be a part of.  This is why the Busam dealerships is “The Dealer Closest to Your Heart”.

What We’re All About

The Busam family has been in the automotive business since 1909. Busam is a family owned business that is built on one very important value — We believe in the importance of building relationships.

Buying a car is a big decision for everyone.  It is important you  trust the sales consultant, owners, and service technicians. When this trust is established, and a relationship is built, a fully satisfied car-buying experience can be had. We have always stood behind relationship building, and because of that we have been successful through the years.

As we are all aware, the communication model is changing. Messages are no longer one-way. It is so important for businesses to take the time to learn, and listen to their community.

We Understand the Importance of Listening

The focus of this blog is to interact with you. We want to open up another line of communication with you so we can learn from each other. We want to address one central question — What do you want to learn about buying cars?

We are really excited to see where this opportunity will take us! So please comment and contact us.

Can’t wait to learn from you, and began building stronger relationships!
