Courtesy Toyota of Brandon, an Asbury Automotive Group company, recently held a grand reopening of its new facility at 9210 E. Adamo Dr., next door to its old location.
Housing the dealership is a 91,000 sq. ft. building which its general manager, Michael Schepise, is very proud of.
"Our new Courtesy Toyota of Brandon location is not only aesthetically impressive, but it also represents a thoughtful approach to enhancing the work environment for our team members," said Schepise. "The parts department is centrally located for our technicians to easily access, the locker rooms are comparable to what you would see in a spa or fitness gym, and the break rooms are equipped with large televisions and a micro market. We wanted to make this facility a place where our employees felt comfortable."
The new facility also features 63 state-of-the-art technician bays, and a space to accommodate approximately 1,300 vehicles. Courtesy Toyota of Brandon is also proud to mention that they are also providing comfortable locker rooms to their employees. Furthermore, it also offers a modern guest waiting area that has large screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, a mother’s room, a children’s play area, and a fully-stocked café offering different varieties of teas and coffees which customers can definitely enjoy.
Adding to the whole new level of customer experience is its Asbury platform called Push Start, which is being piloted at Courtesy Toyota of Brandon. The platform allows car shoppers to check new and used vehicles, negotiate payments, get approved, electronically sign their purchase with DocuSign, and cars delivered to their doorstep.
"Courtesy Toyota is thrilled to continue to be a part of the Tampa community, and our reinvestment to the local economy was an easy decision," said Asbury CEO and president David Hult. "Courtesy Toyota has a history of success, and since Asbury purchased the business in 1998, the store has been the sales and service provider of choice for millions of Toyota customers in this community. We're excited to see what the future holds and how we will be able to grow the business in the Tampa market."
