MIAMI — After two years of negotiation, Bomnin Chevrolet has acquired Grand Prize Chevrolet, the company announced today. The acquisition of the West Kendall, Fla.-based dealership is expected to expand Bomnin Chevrolet’s footprint in the Miami area, allowing the operation to service customers in more than one location.

“Grand Prize Chevrolet has truly been a model of excellence in the community and we are eager to continue to expand on the decades of good work they have done,” said Arnaldo Bomnin, owner of Bomnin Chevrolet. “We’re grateful to the South Florida community for supporting us. This opportunity will allow us to better serve the community by offering more locations and expanding our service capabilities.” 

According to the company, Bomnin Chevrolet was already the largest Chevrolet retail dealership in the southeastern United States prior to its recent acquisition. It was also the fifth largest dealership in the nation. Bomnin Chevrolet was also one of 50 Chevy dealers to receive the 2015 Chevrolet Dealer of the Year Award. Grand Prize Chevrolet was also a 2015 recipient of the award. 

"It's remarkable that both of these dealers have been recipients of GM's highest honor,” said Carlos Latuour, Chevrolet zone manager for South Florida and the Caribbean. “It's truly a story of one great dealer buying another great dealer, and we look forward to their continued success under Arnaldo's leadership.”
