Larry H. Miller Acquires First California Dealership

Press Release

August 19, 2014

Larry H. Miller Dealerships has acquired Quality Toyota in Corona, Calif., marking the group's first dealership in the state of California.

“We've spent some time surveying the Southern California market looking for a dealership that fit with the philosophies and business strategies of our group,” said Steve Starks, executive vice president of Larry H. Miller Management Corporation.

In addition to acquiring the store, Larry H. Miller Dealerships will retain current employees of the dealership. The dealership has been renamed Larry H. Miller Toyota Corona and is located at 1700 W. 6th Street in Corona.

"Employees are vital to the success of a dealership and we consider the team at Quality Toyota part of the asset," said Dean Fitzpatrick, president of Larry H. Miller Dealerships. Seller Bud Gordon and his family will continue to run the facility and be involved in the Quality West Wing Foundation, a charitable organization founded by Gordon, which sits on the dealership property.

"I am thankful that the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, an organization with more than 30 years of experience in the automotive industry and a great commitment to community, is purchasing my store," Gordon said.
