Gettacar is a digital first platform that enables customers a choice to buy, trade and finance used cars 100% online or in person. Founder and CEO, Yossi Levi built the online retailer after years of working in the car sales and financing community. He created Gettacar with the mission of creating the best car buying and ownership experience by removing the typical customer pain points.
In 2020, Gettacar achieved a 186% year over year sales growth and expects continued growth in 2021. Gettacar’s success has been fueled by the exceptional customer service it provides with upfront pricing, real-time financing options, home delivery, and an industry leading Gettacar Guarantee which provides 365 days of protection coverage and maintenance.
“I am absolutely honored to be recognized among the Entrepreneur of The Year 2021 Greater Philadelphia winners for building a successful business, and making an impact on our local community,” said Yossi Levi, Founder and CEO, Gettacar. ”Our ability to humanize the car buying experience would not be possible without Gettacar’s dedicated employees and their truly supportive families who day in and day out push us to be better leaders and better teammates.”
Levi was selected by a panel of independent judges. The award was announced during the program’s virtual awards gala on July 27, 2021, which is available to replay.
