Company History

Lewis Automotive Group was formed by Jim Lewis on January 1, 2006 but its foundation dates back to 1968 when Jim’s father purchased a small car lot in Topeka, Kansas. Having grown up around his father’s dealership, Jim was a natural in the auto industry, so when Toyota showed tremendous growth in the 1970’s he moved to Dodge City in 1977 to operate a Toyota dealership of his own. The move eventually led Jim and his brother Rod Lewis, to multiple dealership acquisitions in the 1990’s. Then, in January 2006, Jim Lewis became sole owner of the western Kansas dealerships and formed Lewis Automotive Group, which consists of the following legally separate, individual companies:

·         L & L Enterprises (Management Office) is a partnership between Jim Lewis and wife, Tonya Lewis. L & L Enterprises was originally formed in 1990 as a management company that served the multiple dealerships acquired in that decade. Today, L & L Enterprises remains the management company for Lewis Automotive Group with a staff of three full-time employees.

·         Lewis Toyota of Dodge City was purchased in September 1977 with a staff of 10 employees. Located at 907 South 2nd Street, Lewis Toyota of Dodge City has now grown to over 30 employees and is a multi-recipient of Toyota’s prestigious “President’s Award” for outstanding customer satisfaction.

·         Lewis Toyota Ford Lincoln Mercury of Hays was purchased in September 1990 and was originally located at South Vine & Hwy 40 Bypass with a staff of 28 employees. Their growth over the years led to them moving to a new location in North Hays and then in August 2003 a new dealership was built at 4450 N. Vine. They now have a staff of 47 employees. Honors include being a multi-recipient of Toyota’s “President’s Award” and Ford’s “North American Customer Excellence” award.

Lewis Automotive Group of Kearney opened in Kearney, Nebraska in July 2008 as a used car division of Lewis Toyota Ford Lincoln Mercury.

·         Lewis Chevrolet Cadillac Nissan of Garden City was originally purchased in 1992 (known as Garden City Auto Plaza, then Lewis Motors). Lewis Chevrolet currently employs 30 employees and is a multi-franchise dealer located at 1903 East Highway 50.

·         Lewis Chrysler Dodge Jeep of Hays was purchased from Great Plains Motors in 1996 with a staff of 12 employees. In 2007, a new dealership was built and they moved to their new location at 4440 N. Vine. Lewis Chrysler has grown into a staff of 26 employees and is a Five-Star Certified Dealer, Chrysler’s highest recognition earned by dealerships that have made the commitment to provide excellence in customer service.
