Mark Miller Toyota - New & Used Toyota Car Dealership in Salt Lake City - Serving Provo and Grantsville, Utah
Our business began in 1953 as a Pontiac/Cadillac dealership located at 4919 South State Street in Murray. Started by Laury Miller, the dealership later added GMC trucks and eventually Rambler. The company remained at that location until the fall of 1967, when it moved into its current facility at 3535 South State Street.
In 1971, the dealership took on Subaru, a small company which was importing a new front-wheel drive car from Japan. Also in 1971, Laury's son Mark joined the company on a full time basis. Having worked in the auto repair and service, auto parts, and used car departments, he had just completed his first year as a salesperson and in January, 1971 started his duties as the dealership's Accounting Manager.
In July of 1975, Laury and Mark signed a buy-sell agreement which was completed in November of 1976. On December 1st of 1976, Mark was awarded the Pontiac and Subaru franchises and became one of the youngest General Motors dealers in the country.
In 1985, the decision was made to separate into its own corporation and facility, and in May of that year, Mark Miller Subaru opened at its location at 3734 South State Street. At that time, Glen Krinke, who had been the General Sales Manager at the main dealership, was promoted to General Manager and took over the day-to-day operations of the Subaru Dealership. In December of 1985, Steve McIntyre was promoted to General Manager of Mark Miller Pontiac.
In April of 1990, Mark purchased a Toyota car dealership in Salt Lake City. Mark Miller Toyota opened on April 13th, 1990.
Mark Miller Toyota is successfully led today by General Manager Bill Niemann.
