Burger enthusiast and entrepreneur Mark Wahlberg has purchased a Chevrolet car dealership in Avon, Ohio.

The location, formerly known as Joe Firment Chevrolet, will now be named Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet. Sounds appropriate, right?

Wahlberg already owns Chevrolet dealerships in Columbus and Worthington, and they’re also named Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet. He now has a total of five.

The dealership is located at 37995 Chester Road in Avon.

They’re hosting grand opening parties this week, and burgers from a Wahlburger’s food truck will be there for the fun.

Hey, I’m a Chevy girl, so I say go for it, Mark.
