advocates. The family-owned enterprise serves Florida’s Treasure
Coast and its surrounding areas.
“It’s been an amazing 25 years, and our entire organization
is looking forward to the next 25 and beyond,” said Nick Smith,
president and CEO of Bev Smith Toyota. “Thanks to the Treasure
Coast communities, Southeast Toyota Distributors and all of our great
employees for making this all happen. We are greatly appreciative.”
A celebratory luncheon took place May 18 at the dealership, which

the past 25 years.
