Florida Toyota Dealership Opens 34,000-Square-Foot Facility

While the National Automobile Dealers Association is predicting that 900 of the 20,770 new-car dealers in the United States will be out of business by the end of this year, one Florida dealership is hoping to boost business through its body shop. Legacy Toyota in Tallahassee, Fla., opened a new 34,000 square-foot collision center on Dec. 3, Tallahassee newspaper the Democrat reported.

The center is more than three times the size of the dealership’s previous location, a 10,000-square-foot shop.

"I have gained throughput, which means I can get vehicles repaired more quickly," said collision center manager Tammy Albritton. "We are capable of handling a very high workload."

The shop employs 15 people and uses PPG waterborne paints, Albritton said. The facility also is fully air-conditioned.

Albritton said the large facility is “built for the future,” with room for increased repair volume and more employees.
