Groundbreaking Held, Construction Begins on Audi Dealership

High Tech Facility to Open in Wesley Chapel in the Fall of 2017

Dimmitt Automotive group recently broke ground on a brand new Audi dealership that is slated to open this November in Wesley Chapel. The ground breaking ceremony took place on Monday, May 22, 2017 and was attended by company Presidents Richard Dimmitt, Jr., Peter Dimmitt, and Dimmitt CEO Scott Larguier. Also in attendance were Pasco County Commission Chair Mike Moore, JD and Bill Porter from Wiregrass Ranch, Locust Branch COO Scott Sheridan, Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce Chair Hope Allen and others.

Speaking on the warm and breezy morning in a canopied area protecting guests from the Florida sunshine, Larguier talked about the multi-generational Porter and Dimmitt family businesses. He addressed the importance of being good members of the community and how the new dealership will employ some 50 associates.

The event took place at the site of the future dealership at 2500 LaJuana Blvd. in Wesley Chapel. When completed, it will be a 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, customer-centric facility. The building was designed by architect Richard Bekesh, President of Spring Engineering. The structure, when complete, will have an almost art museum type quality.

The project is being referred to as Audi Terminal, and as Larguier explained “The entire facility is designed with the customer experience at its core.” The goal of the dealership is to provide Audi’s most innovative retail experience yet. Once inside, customers will not only be able to view the full line up of Audi vehicles, works of art in their own right, but will also be greeted with luxury lounges with leather club chairs and iPads. What customers will not see is the traditional array of sales desks and telephones. The dealerships goal is to provide a combination of elegant interaction and advanced technology.

Dimmitt Automotive Group already features Cadillac, Land Rover, Jaguar, Toyota, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and McLaren dealerships. Audi, representing the finest in German engineering will now be a part of the group’s growing lineup of fine quality vehicles.

Larguier reminded those in attendance of the Dimmitt mission statement:  “Our mission is to improve the quality of life for our associates, our guests, and the community through service, excellence and innovation.” That commitment will be on display this Fall with the opening of Dimmitt Automotive Group’s new Audi dealership in Wesley Chapel.
