Customer Spotlight: Johnny Motors in Biddeford, ME

“We’ve been in business for two years now as of January, but I’ve been in the dealership world for my whole career. When an opportunity to open a business came about, I decided to go for it.

My dad was a mechanic by trade, and growing up he taught me a lot. That’s how I got into it, and it’s been my career ever since — and the rest is history.

I have extensive experience in European manufactured vehicles. It’s a primary part of my business and there aren’t a lot of shops that will take on the stuff that I do.

I love working in Biddeford because a lot of our local clientele grew up in Biddeford and Saco, so a lot of our customers know us personally. I like to think people find me to be fair and honest, and that people are happy with the work I do.

The market has been so volatile and the sales side of things is still relatively new to us. So much stuff is happening that it can be difficult at first for beginners to get into this market. But we learn something new every day and work hard to keep our customers happy. 

Our shop is located right off of Alfred Street on Clarks Court, so it’s within walking distance to a lot of local shops and restaurants. It’s a nice perk for both us and our customers. It’s fun to be near the happenings of downtown. There are a lot of little niche spots in this area that people can enjoy, and it’s rewarding to be a part of that community.”
