General RV Center, the nation’s premier family-owned RV dealer, is poised to broaden its presence in Florida with the inauguration of its fourth Supercenter in the state. Scheduled to open its doors in early December, the new Fort Pierce location marks the company’s 18th nationwide, signaling a significant expansion of General RV’s footprint in the Sunshine State.
Strategically situated about 20 miles north of Port St. Lucie, Florida, the upcoming Supercenter is not just a testament to General RV’s growth but also a beacon of economic promise for the region. With its substantial size and comprehensive facilities, the center is expected to play a pivotal role in serving Florida’s thriving RV community.
Loren Baidas, president of General RV, expressed enthusiasm about the expansion, “We are thrilled to continue our growth in Florida and bring our quality service and products to a new region.”
This statement underscores the company’s commitment to enhancing the RV purchasing and ownership experience in Florida, a state known for its robust RV culture, according to a press release.
The new Supercenter in Fort Pierce is not just a sales hub but a full-service facility. Spanning 25,000 square feet, it will feature between 16 to 18 service bays and provide ample space to showcase a vast array of motorhomes, fifth wheels, and travel trailers, catering to a wide range of customer needs and preferences.
In a move that reflects General RV’s dedication to community and economic development, the Fort Pierce Supercenter is set to add up to 100 jobs to the local economy. This initiative begins with a hiring event scheduled for November 7 and 8, aiming to staff the new facility with a team that can deliver the exceptional service General RV is known for.
The hiring event, which will take place at the Supercenter’s location at 3410 S US Highway 1, is not just about filling positions. It represents an opportunity for local residents to become part of a family-owned business that values customer service and community ties, offering roles across sales, service, parts, office operations, and management.
General RV’s expansion in Florida is part of a broader strategy that has seen the company grow significantly in 2023. Earlier in the year, General RV acquired a second store in Pennsylvania and broke ground on new locations in Utah and North Carolina, demonstrating the company’s nationwide commitment to the RV lifestyle.
Each new location, including the Fort Pierce Supercenter, is meticulously planned to mirror the success of existing General RV centers. The adoption of the Supercenter format across the nation ensures that customers receive a consistent and high-quality experience, whether they’re in Florida or any other state where General RV operates.
As the largest family-owned RV dealership in Florida, according to Statistical Surveys Inc., General RV Center has established a formidable reputation. The company’s expansion efforts are not just about increasing their number of locations but also about setting the bar high for service and customer satisfaction in the RV industry.
The Fort Pierce Supercenter, with its state-of-the-art facilities, is poised to become a hub for RV enthusiasts and a significant employer in the region. The center’s design as a former car dealership allows for a swift transformation into a top-tier RV sales and service location, reflecting General RV’s ability to innovate and adapt.
For those interested in the opportunities that General RV Center’s expansion brings, the company’s recruitment efforts are a clear indication of its inclusive hiring policy. With a range of positions available, from entry-level to management, and a commitment to providing paid training, General RV is opening doors for many to join the booming RV industry.
