The History of Grieco

Grieco Automotive Group is a family business that's dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction. Whether you're purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle, servicing the one you already own, or shopping for a part, we work hard to provide a world-class experience at every Grieco location.

Michael Grieco Sr. ventured into the automotive industry in 1975 when he opened his first collision center, Universal Claim Service.  This led to the opening of Vantage Motor Sales in 1979.  Then, in 1995, he acquired his first new car franchise, Metro Honda, now known as Grieco Honda. As the years passed and with the acquisitions of more franchises, Grieco Automotive Group was created to handle the company's growing automotive business.  

Michael Grieco Sr. began transferring the leadership role of the day-to-day operations to his son, Michael Grieco Jr., who is now one of the youngest automotive CEO's in the country. Over the years, Michael Grieco Jr. has added two Kia, two Chevrolet, three Ford and one Mazda franchise as well as Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram-Fiat, BMW, and Toyota franchises.  The company also operates two 100% Green, eco-friendly collision centers in Rhode Island and South Florida.  Over the last 30 years Grieco has acquired and sold more than 25 different franchises across three states.

Today, they continue to maintain a solid reputation for excellence. Also, to deliver an exceptional customer experience, Grieco Automotive Group has created the "Grieco Difference," an outstanding dealership program designed to exceed customer expectations and deliver first-class customer service. 

Grieco Automotive now boasts six dealerships in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and six dealerships in Florida. They've received multiple #1 rankings for volume sales, certified pre-owned sales and service.   Many of the Grieco franchises have also won numerous manufacturer awards including those for customer satisfaction as well as President's Awards. It's with the abundance of stores and volume that the Grieco Automotive Group can deliver incredibly low prices on their vehicles, and the reason why their tagline is "Our volume saves you thousands!"

In addition to their dealerships, Grieco Automotive Group also operates two "Green," eco-friendly collision centers, one in Johnston, Rhode Island and the other in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Not only does Grieco care about your vehicle, but the environment as well. From waterborne paint technology to stringent recycling efforts, the Grieco Collision Centers are dedicated to protecting the environment while providing you with a full-range of auto body repair needs.

Michael's brothers, Domenic and Robert, are also instrumental in the Grieco Automotive Group. As General Manager, Domenic oversees the Grieco Ford store in Raynham, Massachusetts. Because of Domenic's efforts and success, Grieco Automotive Group acquired two more Ford dealerships in Florida. Robert serves as Corporate Pre-Owned Director for the Grieco Automotive Group. Both Domenic and Robert also serve as members on the Board of Directors. 

Contributing to the success of Grieco Automotive Group; George Smith Jr., Chief Operating Officer, and Scott Olenski, Chief Financial Officer who are heavily involved in the day to day operations as well as future development plans.

The family's philanthropic efforts have been 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 Special Olympics, The Humane Society, Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island, Toys for Tots, Feeding America, Water for Cambodia, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Best Foot Forward Foundation, Hasbro Children's Hospital and other local, southern New England charities. For over two decades, Grieco Automotive Group has been giving back to the community, not only by raising millions of dollars for charities, but also by having their employees donate countless hours to community outreach programs.

Grieco Automotive cares about delivering the best possible purchase and service experience to their customers. They have built their brand on providing you with the best service and value. Grieco owners and employees alike are here for all your automotive needs.
