Krumland Auto Group celebrated the grand opening of its Nissan dealership Thursday with music, food and fireworks.
This is the first Nissan dealership in Roswell in at least a decade. The project was built from the ground up, took seven months to construct and cost more than $5 million to complete, said Toby Gross, managing partner of TNT Construction.
The company designed and built the state-of-the-art facility, which features a lounge for customers, free wi-fi, a putting green and a charging station for electric cars.
Tommy Krumland, general manager of Roswell Nissan, said the facility has the largest Nissan inventory in the southern part of the state.
It’s the latest addition to the Krumland Auto Group, which owns five other car dealerships in the area.
“The deals and the commitment to our community is as preset here as at any of our other dealerships,” Krumland said.
The event was well attended by members of the Roswell community, as well as Nissan representatives from out of state.
Mayor Del Jurney thanked Thomas and Linda Krumland for investing in the community, providing economic opportunities and options for local consumers.
“What they do for this community … is what makes them such a benefit to this community,” he said.
Krumland and Joe Reiser, operations manager at Krumland Auto Group, said their successes had more to do with the team behind them and the customers they serve.
“It’s all about people and that’s what we’ve worked hard at,” Reiser said.
