When You’re Talkin’ ‘Commitment to Community Development’, You’re Talkin’ Koons

The catch-phrase of the Koons Automotive business over the last 40 some years has been used to promote the sale and service of automotive products in the Washington/Baltimore markets by ‘talkin cars and talkin’ Koons’. Along the way, the company has also built its industry-famous ‘WOW’ pricing and customer experience in its showrooms and service departments.

In their business, it certainly doesn’t stop there. A dedication to customer service has permitted the Jim Koons Automotive Companies to be recognized nationally as professional leaders in automotive sales and service. During 2009, the Company was recognized by the Washington Business Journal as being one of the ‘Best Places to Work’—over all business sectors and not just automotive.  In fact, the Company took top honors competing against all large companies with local headquarters in the region.   During the last few years, the Jim Koons Automotive group has been operating Koons Toyota in Easton, employing over 60 full-time employees. So what does a company do for encores? Among many things, how about helping to develop the youth base and local community at the YMCA of Talbot County.

“We are so blessed to have the opportunity to partner with Koons Automotive to make a difference in the lives of our local youth,” said Robbie Gill, CEO of the YMCA of Talbot County. “The YMCA currently serves one in two youth in our community through programs and membership. This past year the YMCA set out to raise funds to build a 9,200 sq ft. Teen and Family Center that would be the hub for youth development in our community. Knowing the challenges our county faces with adolescent substance abuse and the opportunity to shift this paradigm through meaningful work with kids, Koons Automotive stepped up to the plate and has helped to make this dream become a reality. We’re so thankful for their capital campaign support in this project and their commitment to the development of all of our kids”

The Jim Koons Automotive Companies, with headquarters in Tysons Corner, VA, owns 20 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. Koons is one of the 15 largest dealership organizations in the United States.

Let the ‘Wow’ continue.
