In 1978, Michael Grieco Sr. ventured into the automotive industry when he opened his first dealership. He then acquired Metro Honda in 1995. As the years passed and with the acquisitions of more franchises, Metro Motor Group was formed to handle the company's growing automotive business.
In the years following, Michael Grieco, Sr. began transferring the reins and leadership role of the day-to-day operations to his son, Michael Grieco Jr. It was at Metro Honda that Michael Grieco Jr. learned the nuances of running a successful dealership.
Working his way up from a salesman to currently holding an executive position, Michael Grieco Jr. is now one of the youngest automotive CEO's in the country. Over the years, Michael Grieco Jr. has added three Kia and two Mazda franchises as well as Ford, Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram, FIAT, Land Rover, Jaguar, BMW Toyota, Scion, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati franchises. The company also operates two 100% Green, Eco Friendly Collision Centers in Rhode Island and South Florida.
Our South Florida Region has operated under the Grieco name since 2012. Just recently, the Metro Dealerships in New England have also taken on the Grieco family name. With the entire group now operating under the Grieco brand, we will continue to maintain a solid reputation for excellence. Also, in an effort to deliver an outstanding customer experience, Grieco Automotive Group has created the "Grieco Difference", an outstanding dealership program designed to exceed customer expectations and deliver top notch customer service.
Grieco Automotive now boasts eight dealerships in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and five dealerships in Florida. They've been named the #2 Mazda dealership in the country, #1 Jeep dealership in volume sales, #1 in sales of Ford F-Series trucks, #1 Honda dealership in volume sales for Rhode Island, and #1 Kia dealership in volume sales for Rhode Island. Many of the Grieco franchises have won numerous Manufacturer Awards including those for Customer Satisfaction as well as President's Awards.
Over the past few years, Michael Grieco Sr.'s primary focus is running his commercial real estate and development company. He also oversees Grieco Collision Center, Rhode Island's only "green," eco-friendly collision center in the state. Michael's brothers, Domenic and Robert, are involved in running the Rhode Island and Massachusetts dealerships. Domenic is the General Manager of Grieco Ford and Grieco Kia MA and Robert is the Corporate Pre-owned Manager. They also serve as members on the Board of Directors and are involved in the future developments of Grieco Automotive.
The family's philanthropic efforts are headed by wife and mother, Cathy Grieco. Cathy served as president of the Rhode Island chapter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's charitable organization for several years and has helped raise over $1 million towards research. Her altruistic contributions also extend to organizations like the Special Olympics, Humane Society, Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island, Hasbro Children's Hospital and other local, Southern New England charities.
Grieco Automotive has always been a family business that cares about delivering the best possible purchase and service experience to our customers.Our Group has built its brand on "Saving You Thousands!"
