Already under construction and going vertical in Wesley Chapel’s Wiregrass Ranch area is a new Audi dealership, adding to the already vast selection for automobile shoppers in Wesley Chapel.
Over the last few years, Wesley Chapel has seen Alfa Romeo and Mercedes enter the market, and Chevrolet has added a new building to its existing lot. Lexus of Wesley Chapel is under construction at the southeast corner of S.R. 54 and I-75, and Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce CEO Hope Allen says the new auto dealerships are definitely a coup for the area.
Allen says Lexus, for example, has only given out two franchises in the past 10 years, and one was to Wesley Chapel. As for Audi, Allen says it is another boost for the local economy.
“Any luxury brand is a very good catch, because these car sales generates sales taxes for the county,’’ Allen says. “I think it says something that our area and community are able to sustain not one, not two, but now three true luxury auto dealerships.”
