Minneapolis recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Honda Rapids–the Sutton Auto Team’s first dealership in the Minneapolis market.

A host of well-wishers welcomed Nate Sutton, Dealer Principal and Honda Officials to the Minneapolis community and expressed excitement about the positive economic impact the dealership will bring to the city.

Sutton expressed his commitment to Honda and the city of Minneapolis by advising that the dealership will employ over 100 people at the all-new $10 million facility. Set to open in the Spring of 2019 the facility will have 61,000 square feet of interior space and just over 800 parking spots. He notes that his team will bring new Honda products and customer service to Anoka County like never before.

Executives and well-wishers helped celebrate Rapids Honda’s groundbreaking at their recent ceremony.

Roy Lacey, General Manager of the store said, “I am thrilled that we are expanding our Chicago roots further into the Midwest. Our formula for success ensures that we will take good care of our employees and our customers while representing our Honda products and services at the highest levels.”

“We have plans to make Honda Rapids one of the top dealerships in Minneapolis, if not Minnesota, by taking incredibly good care of each customer on each sales visit and each service visit,” Lacey said.

The customer experience will be highlighted via free wi-fi throughout the facility and will include advanced digital integrations. Honda Rapids will keep employees and customers up to speed via social media on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. Given his history of success, Sutton promises to keep his team connected to the Minneapolis community.

The Sutton Auto Team proudly confirmed that they will open their first Minneapolis based dealership. After successfully working with the Ford, Lincoln and Honda brands in suburban Chicago and in Kenosha, Wisconsin the fast-growing dealer group will now sell and service Hondas in the Minneapolis suburb of Coon Rapids.

Nate Sutton, Dealer Principal, will establish a Honda open point on the rapidly developing north side of town near Gateway Commerce Center at Highway 10 and Hanson Boulevard.

Sutton won the open point over dozens of candidates from a large field of dealer applicants from the Minneapolis metro area and Midwest.

“I was honored to be considered and ecstatic to be selected,” Sutton said. “I give all the credit to our outstanding group of current employees and our growing list of satisfied customers. Those positive shared experiences and our commitment to Honda will be the standard we bring to every working day in the Minneapolis community.”

Current plans call for more than 100 employees and an all-new $10 million facility—just west of the McDonald’s restaurant on Harrison Boulevard. The facility will open in early 2019 and will include a 61,000 square foot building with more than 800 vehicle parking spaces.

The new dealership will be called Rapids Honda.
