Back in 2010, our founders Len Short, Robert Vucic, Jason Knight, and Denise Chudy understood there were too many layers wedged between a dealer and a shopper. They saw a gap in the industry; No technology or platform existed to identify and solve for a dealer’s specific needs – and they believed in the importance of landing car shoppers on VDPs. So they began their journey of developing the business they knew dealers needed.

With the idea that dealers would welcome the ability to cut out the middlemen, and connect directly with people who were looking to purchase the cars they had on their lot, they created Chug.net. It was a Vehicle Display Network that enabled shoppers to easily search dealer inventory. But they realized the automotive world didn’t need another portal site. So they set out to do something that hadn’t been done before – bring the cars dealers wanted to sell directly to the people who were looking to buy them, unrestricted by channel.

Back in 2010, our founders Len Short, Robert Vucic, Jason Knight, and Denise Chudy understood there were too many layers wedged between a dealer and a shopper. They saw a gap in the industry; No technology or platform existed to identify and solve for a dealer’s specific needs – and they believed in the importance of landing car shoppers on VDPs. So they began their journey of developing the business they knew dealers needed.

With the idea that dealers would welcome the ability to cut out the middlemen, and connect directly with people who were looking to purchase the cars they had on their lot, they created Chug.net. It was a Vehicle Display Network that enabled shoppers to easily search dealer inventory. But they realized the automotive world didn’t need another portal site. So they set out to do something that hadn’t been done before – bring the cars dealers wanted to sell directly to the people who were looking to buy them, unrestricted by channel.
