There was compelling news for residents and lovers of precision engineered automobiles recently on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Dimmitt Automotive Group broke ground on their brand new Audi dealership in Wesley Chapel. The ceremony, which took place on Monday, May 22, 2017, was attended by a group of community dignitaries along with those representing the families involved in this exciting new venture. The dealership is yet another demonstration of the commitment the Dimmitt family has to the automotive heritage in this region of Florida.


The groundbreaking ceremony was hosted by Dimmitt CEO Scott Larguier. He recognized company presidents Richard Dimmitt Jr. and Peter Dimmitt, along with acknowledging those in attendance including Pasco County Commission Chair Mike Moore, Locust Branch COO Scott Sheridan, and Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce Chair Hope Allen. Special recognition was given to JD and Bill Porter from Wiregrass Ranch, who were so instrumental in working towards an agreement on the property that would be mutually comfortable for all involved.


Hot and breezy conditions were at least somewhat tempered by canopies that protected guests from the Florida sun. Larguier opened the ceremonies by discussing the importance of the multi-generational links the Porter and Dimmitt family businesses have in common in the area. He also mentioned the significance of being good stewards of the communities of which they serve. He added the news that, along with a beautiful new facility, the Audi dealership would employ some 50 associates when it is expected to open in November of 2017.


The ground breaking ceremony took place at the future site of the dealership at 2500 LaJuana Blvd. in Wesley Chapel. When completed, the 40,000 square foot facility is expected to have an art museum quality to it. The design is created by architect Richard Bekesh, President of Spring Engineering. Everything about the facility will be customer-centric. The entire project is being referred to as a Audi Terminal. It is yet another step in the Dimmitt Automotive Group's efforts to elevate the car buying experience.


"The entire facility is designed with the customer experience at its core." Larguier explained. "The goal of the dealership is to provide Audi's most innovative retail experience yet." As customers enter they will be greeted by the full line of Audi vehicles, displayed as works of art in their own right. Customers will be welcomed with luxury lounges with leather club chairs and iPads. What visitors to the Wesley Chapel facility will not see is the trappings of a routine, standard car dealership. There will be no array of sales desks or telephones. The goal of the new Audi dealership is to combine elegant interaction with these fine automobiles along with advanced technology. It is a combination the Dimmitt Automotive Group hopes the entire region will appreciate and enjoy.


At the ground breaking ceremony Larguier also reminded those attending of the mission statement of the Dimmitt Group saying "Our mission is to improve the quality of life for our associates, our guests, and the community through service, excellence and innovation."


The Dimmitt Automotive Group has been a part of the Central Gulf Coast community for generations. They now offer quality automotive products from Cadillac, Land Rover, Jaguar, Toyota, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and McLaren. This latest addition, Audi, with the finest in German engineering, is now a part of the family's legacy in the region.
