CUMMING, Ga. — Anyone looking to buy a new Toyota will soon not have to go farther than Forsyth County.
Ground was broken May 11 at 1875 Buford Highway for the new location of Beaver Toyota.
Partners Mike Beaver and Matt Calavan were offered the opportunity to open a new Toyota store in Cumming from Southeast Toyota. This new family owned, state-of-the-art 130,000-square-foot facility is expected to open in the spring of 2017, which will mark the first new Toyota dealership built in the Southeast in more than five years.
In addition to the full-service center, there will be an outdoor area where customers can hang out or events can take place.
“We are so excited about that,” Beaver said. “There will be two fire pits, big-screen TVs and a big bar.”
The Beaver and Calavan families are committed to the local communities and, to prove that, they donated $100,000 to Forsyth County Schools for the Education Foundation before they even broke ground.
“We have been loving and supporting teachers and schools for a very long time and we will continue to promote and advocate them,” Katie Calavan said. “Not only do we feel a sense of responsibility, but our hearts pour out to the community and we are proud to be able to provide assistance to them.”
As the group is comprised of many family members, they say they take that aspect to work with them.
“We treat everyone like family,” Beaver said. “We have great teams that truly love what they do.”
