If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Last year, Asbury Automotive Group was mindful of that rule when it purchased Larry H. Miller Dealerships for $3.2 billion.
Following the acquisition, Asbury left Rick Trinkl — general manager of Larry H. Miller Hyundai Peoria in Arizona — in charge of his fast-growing dealership.
Which comes as no surprise. In 2021, the suburban Phoenix dealership sold a record 2,779 new vehicles, up from 2,005 the previous year. Last year, it also sold 993 used vehicles, up from 874 in 2020.
And now the store has topped Automotive News' annual list of the 100 Best Dealerships To Work For.
This is the third-straight year that the dealership has been recognized as the nation's best large dealership — a category that covers stores with more than 100 employees — and the first time it has been honored as the overall winner.
