Subaru dealership breaks ground at Fremont Auto Mall
Expressing enthusiasm for the future of its new dealership and the economic climate in Fremont, Premiere Automotive co-owners Troy Duhon and Philip Leone, along with chamber members, civic leaders and Steve Drew of Subaru of America gathered for a symbolic groundbreaking ceremony on a vacant lot next to PremiereÕs existing Kia and Nissan dealerships on August 28, 2014.
Duhan described SubaruÕs sales success as a Òbrand on fire,Ó and the new dealership as a Ògreat complement to what we have at the Auto Mall.Ó Leone, now a Fremont resident, commented on the diverse immigrant fabric of the area, calling his new hometown, Òone of the most exciting cities in the country.Ó
Drew noted that Subaru is selective about locating its dealerships and is excited about the possibilities for the new dealership. He said that in addition to 40 new jobs, the dealership will create an additional $400,000-$600,000 of sales tax revenue for the county. Mayor Bill Harrison spoke about the economic impact of new businesses in Fremont, saying, ÒItÕs about putting people to work.Ó
