If You’re Going to San Francisco

A look inside the San Francisco Region and the unique challenges it faces with its dealers

August 28, 2018

In a world moving toward SUVs and trucks, with nary a thought of gas-mileage, San Francisco Toyota is different.
The dealership, helmed by Dealer Principal Doug Donnellan, may be more defined by its hybrid sales than any other dealership in the country.
Donnellan runs two dealerships surrounded city life, with its dearth of parking spots and eye-opening gas prices. So it makes sense that, to San Francisco, Toyota, the Prius is just as hot as a RAV4.
Key to their success is their relationship with the San Francisco Region, stretching from Fresno all the way to the Oregon border. And General Manager Shawn Domeracki admits that his dealers are playing on a different field than everyone else.
