Legendary Service... Ask Your Friends - Since 1969
There’s been much speculation recently on our social networks as to the origins of Dennis Kirk (the company) and who was/is Dennis Kirk. Here’s a quick rundown to set the record straight…
Dennis (Kirk) Frandsen founded the company back in 1969. It began as “All American”, soon changing its name to Dennis Kirk to be more personable. The store began as a small shop in rural Rush City, Minnesota, selling Snowmobile parts. It quickly became an “on the way up north” stop for in and out-of-staters to get their machines ready for riding.
For the record, although he sold the company back in 1977, and is no longer associated with Dennis Kirk, Entrepreneur Dennis Frandsen is still actively involved in multiple business ventures today.
