In 1979, Frank Venegas, Jr. bought a raffle ticket at the Livingston County Builders’ Ball for a Cadillac Coupe DeVille. With a little bit of luck, he won the Cadillac, drove it for nine days and sold it for seed money to start his first business.
Fast forward 35 years and the Ideal Group has grown to include seven companies, employs over 500 people and is located on the grounds of the old Cadillac Clark Street Plant; where the Cadillac that started it all was born!
