A groundbreaking ceremony was held in August 2017 by Erdman Automotive Group, on the 35 acre site west of I-95 off State Road 520 in Cocoa, which will be the new home of Mike Erdman Nissan, Mike Erdman Toyota, and Erdman Pre-Owned.  District 3 Councilman, Don Boisvert, Assistant City Manager, Matt Fuhrer, and Economic Development Manager, Larry Lallo were in attendance for this ceremonial event.  

The expansion to the new location includes 160,000 SF of buildings and an investment of nearly $30 million in new construction, machinery, and equipment.  It is also expected to create over 100 new jobs in the Cocoa community. The new facility is expected to open very soon with the Nissan dealership being completed first and then an opening of the Toyota dealership and the Pre-Owned dealership.  

On July 4, 2018, Mike Erdman Nissan & Toyota held a Flag Raising Ceremony at their new Cocoa location, which the Mayor and Members of Council were able to attend and help welcome the organization to Cocoa. The new facilities will be state-of-the-art with new enhanced computer systems, equipment, machinery, and other amenities to enhance the customer experience.  The equipment and software will facilitate and enhance the tracking of customer flow through the service lanes and other shops. 

Other efficiencies will include the diagnostic aspect of the vehicles, the monitoring of the sales process and time it takes to purchase a vehicle.  In addition, the on-site computer systems will be upgraded and enhanced and will utilize cloud technology for both technicians, staff, and customers.  These upgrades will allow a more efficient handling of the customers from the sale of the vehicle to the service of the vehicle.  

We are excited to welcome Erdman Automotive to Cocoa!
