Alex Rodriguez Mercedes-Benz is an example of the type of business deals A-ROD CORP pursues: smart partnerships, exclusive brands and great returns. In 2004, Alex Rodriguez was awarded one of the first new, minority-owned Mercedes-Benz franchises in Texas. A-ROD CORP brought the project to life from the ground up, from site selection, land purchase, and building design, to the complete construction of the dealership.

The business was located just outside of Houston. Following nearly a decade of success with the venture, the dealership was sold in 2014 to a publicly traded company.
