“It’s a red letter day for Fletcher Jones motor cars, Mercedes-Benz,” stated General Manager Antony Chandler. “The city of Temecula has been outstanding, working with us, wanting to see us be successful.”
“We need more sales people, we need more training, in fact we’d like the Newport Beach team to come out here to train.” Chandler said to a flurry of laughter and applause.
Under the direction of Garth Blumenthal, Co-Owner of Mercedes-Benz Temecula, the dealership is opening with about 50 staff, including General Manager Antony Chandler. “I am very impressed with Temecula and the people here,” said Chandler. “There couldn’t be a better place to open up a dealership.”
“We tell the major retailers it will be worth it, and after opening day, retailers break records.” City Officials welcomed the dealership during a recent ribbon cutting ceremony. City of Temecula Mayor Maryann Edwards said, “Fletcher Jones Mercedes-Benz Temecula delivers the utmost in quality and service, elements that Temecula residents have come to expect. We are very proud that Fletcher Jones chose Temecula to build their latest enterprise. ”
“Mercedes knows how to do the details extremely well, and Mercedes-Benz of Temecula is no different,” stated city councilman Chuck Washington.
All who spoke mentioned the challenges in the building of the new dealership, primarily with the recession heading conversation. Now on the other side, all look to the luxury automotive dealer with much anticipation for area residents.
Mercedes-Benz expects to have an inventory of 600 new and pre-owned vehicles, including large commercial vans. The dealership features 30 service bays all housed in a fully air conditioned area that can service 75-100 cars per day.
