It was always Joey Crisostomo’s dream to open a car dealership. So when he got a job offer in 1988 to manage a large Ford and Toyota dealership he saw that as a possible stepping-stone.
The only problem is that the position was in Boise, Idaho. But after talking it over with his wife Joyce, they decided to make the move anyway. “My goal was to work in the various departments and learn, and possibly buy into a store there. I worked in different positions, I was an F&I (finance and insurance) manager, the sales manager for Toyota, the sales manager for Ford,” Crisostomo said.
