In August of 1962 Jerry Rollins and Karen Rogers were getting married and looking for a new place to live. Jerry and his father Raymon (nicknamed "Guinea") went to a Nashua home factory in Macon, Georgia where they decided to buy a new mobile home.
That same day the salesman convinced Guinea to buy four additional homes, and Bowdon Mobile Home Sales was created.
As the business grew over the years, many changes were made at Bowdon Mobile Homes. It was moved from its original location to its current home on the edge of Bowdon. The business also went through a name change, incorporating and becoming the current Five Star Manufactured Homes, Inc. When Raymon Rollins passed away in 1994, the business was continued on by his son, Jerry, and his daughter, Patty Akin. Today they head up the day to day operations of Five Star, and are the driving force behind the business.
Five Star has sold over 7000 homes valued at over $85 million. Although most of the customers have been from the West Georgia and East Alabama areas, some homes have been delivered as far north as Toledo, Ohio, and as far south as Miami, Florida. Five Star has always stressed a high level of service with their home sales, and has been able to maintain that standard with an experienced set-up crew and knowledgeable service and repair crews.
As a way to further commit to a standard of continued service, Five Star Manufactured Homes became a distributor for Stylecrest in 2005. Stylecrest is one of the largest distributors of Manufactured Homes parts and supplies, with a catalog spanning plumbing, heating and air, exterior accessories, doors, windows, and much more.
Five Star also carries inventory from Tri State Distributors, Prime Supply and Posey Supply, giving them one of the most comprehensive parts inventories available.
