About Village Toyota
Operating since: 1985
There’s a lot to be said about history. It gives you something to look back on, and something to look forward to. The Dimmitt family’s history in Tampa Bay is a rich one, built on vision, perseverance, and most of all, legacy.
It all started in Savannah Georgia in the 1900s when the late Larry Dimmitt Sr. joined the automobile business selling and servicing the Peerless car. As part of the “Klondike Gold Rush” before the turn of the century, he became a Buick distributor, supplying 16 dealers in the area. Dimmitt settled in Clearwater Florida in 1924, and the Dimmitt organization continued to grow. In 1952, Larry Dimmitt, Jr. took over the operations from his father. An additional dealership was added for Cadillac in 1965, while Chevrolet sales prospered at the original location. Keeping with tradition, Richard Roth Dimmitt purchased the Cadillac franchise from his father, entering the 3rd generation of dealerships.
The family acquired a Toyota dealership in 1985. Originally located in Inverness, the county seat of Citrus County, Florida, the dealership relocated to an all new facility in Homosassa a few years later along with the addition of a Cadillac franchise.
