FORT MYERS, Fla. — The owners of Bonita Springs Mitsubishi have acquired a second store in the area, Fort Myers Mitsubishi, the company announced today. With this purchase, owners Jeff Johnson and Bill Doraty hope the success of their Bonita Springs store.
The Bonita Springs store, which has been in operation for less than four months, has already cracked the Top 25 sales list for all Mitsubishi dealerships nationwide.
“We believe we have tapped into a very good market for our type of automobiles,” said Johnson. “Mitsubishi is a hot brand right now in the car business. Nissan just acquired a major stake in the company. They believe in their cars and so do we — or we wouldn’t have made the decision to make the investment into a second dealership.”
That decision to purchase the Fort Myers dealership, the announcement noted, is expected to strengthen the dealers’ presence in Southwest Florida and enlarge their footprint throughout Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Naples, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, Estero, Immokalee, Marco Island and Punta Gorda.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
