JM Lexus Celebrates 30 Years in South Florida

MARGATE, Fla.--()--It was 1989 when JM Family Enterprises broke ground on what would become one of the first dealerships to sell the then unknown luxury brand Lexus. Fast forward 30 years and JM Lexus continues to lead and innovate, following its recent adoption of the Lexus Plus sales process.

In 2017, JM Lexus celebrated 25 consecutive years as the No. 1 volume Lexus dealer in the nation. Knowing there is always an opportunity to do it better, JM Lexus decided to pave new roads to its future, becoming the first Lexus Plus dealership in the southeastern U.S. This simplified sales process reflects true luxury by offering customers a stress-free experience with the best upfront pricing and a single point of contact.

“For a long time, our goal was to be the No. 1 volume sales dealer, sometimes at any cost,” said Mark Hoppe, general manager, JM Lexus. “After 30 years, we’ve realized that success comes in many forms and have made providing our customers an unparalleled Lexus Plus experience our top priority. In transforming the way we do business, we showed our customers and incredible associates that their time was more important than our sales record - and that decision has proven to be a successful one.”

In fact, less than two years following the launch of Lexus Plus, JM Lexus has already grown to be the largest volume Lexus Plus dealer in the nation.

In recognition of its milestone anniversary, JM Lexus and its 350 associates celebrated 30 years of achievements, innovation and pioneering with a luncheon. In addition, JM Lexus also hosted loyal customers for a private reception to show appreciation for their participation in the dealership’s continued success. Photos from the anniversary events are available here.
