Mr. Stokes and his wife strived to operate a faith-based business delivering honesty and integrity to every customer. That’s why they call them the Friendly Folks at Stokes.
Not long after Stokes Honda moved into their new dealership, just next door on Robert Smalls Parkway, Stokes Mitsubishi retained the former facilities and took off. Mitsubishi was an extremely successful dealership acquiring the Diamond Chapter of Excellence award from Mitsubishi Motors.
Not long after the Chrysler store was closed, Stokes Toyota opened its doors to the public as Japanese automakers continued to thrive in the United States. Many years passed as the Toyota store began its climb to becoming the #1 Automaker in the United States. Archie Brown, a native of Charleston as well, became General Manager of Stokes Toyota in the mid 90’s. Mr. Brown and the Stokes family partnered up and in the late 90’s, when the Toyota dealership became Stokes Toyota Scion on Trask Parkway in Beaufort, SC. With their professional track record and exceptional Customer Satisfaction scores, Toyota offered the Stokes family the opportunity to expand their operations by adding a second Toyota dealership in Bluffton, SC on highway 278.
