Wesley Chapel Honda and Wesley Chapel Toyota are going to get quite a bit bigger.
The owner of the dealerships along State Road 54, Williams Automotive Group, announced this week that it will add a pre-owned sales center to its existing facility. It will use a little more than 1 acre of land it purchased last May for $1.35 million, according to county property records. Williams Automotive will host a groundbreaking for the project on July 1 at 10:30 a.m., on the corner of State Road 54 and Old Pasco Road, where the new sales center will be built.
“Because of the growth that both Wesley Chapel Toyota and Wesley Chapel Honda have experienced in the Wesley Chapel community, the group is expanding to bring the first used car-buying center to the area,” the company said in a release. “They will provide a first-class buying experience, and a tremendous amount of quality pre-owned inventory to choose from.”
The latest expansion is part of an overall effort being made by the company this year, which also purchased the former Tampa Honda Land at 11000 N. Florida Ave., in Tampa, last March, shortening the name to simply Tampa Honda.
Williams Automotive was founded as Southeast Automotive Group in 2000, and once owned several dealerships in Georgia, selling Toyota, Kia, Mitsubishi and Hyundai, according to the company’s website.
Wesley Chapel Toyota is located at 5300 Eagleston Blvd., and Wesley Chapel Honda is at 27750 Wesley Chapel Blvd.
