Kelley Automotive Group will begin selling and servicing MINI.
The automotive group announced Thursday it would soon offer MINI sales and service at its current BMW of Fort Wayne dealership at 929 Avenue of Autos. Jim Kelley, executive vice president of Kelley Automotive Group, said the new MINI of Fort Wayne will include a separate MINI showroom adjacent to the company’s new BMW showroom and service lanes, to be built in the Kelley Automall off I-69 Exit 305 next to Menard’s.
MINI’s current models, including the two- and four-door Hardtop, Countryman, Clubman, Convertible, John Cooper Works, plug-in hybrid and special editions, will be offered.
““This is an excellent opportunity for Kelley Automotive to add MINI brand to our lineup,” said Jim Kelley, executive vice president of Kelley Automotive Group. “We have a great team in place and are looking forward to bringing MINI to northeast Indiana.”
Previously, the closest MINI dealer to Fort Wayne was in Indianapolis. Fort Wayne’s location will be the second MINI dealership in Indiana.
Kelley said the addition of MINI to the automotive group would result in “several” new employees.
