Wilson Premier Hyundai — the latest addition to metro Jackson’s “auto-row” on Interstate-55 North – celebrates its Madison County location with a grand opening at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Situated on Interstate 55 North in Ridgeland, Premier Hyundai is joining 12 other dealerships along 4.8-mile stretch between Jaguar of Jackson to the south to Patty Peck Honda to the north, said Doug Wilson, CEO of Wilson Auto Group.
The arrival of Wilson Premier Hyundai gives the auto group representation on “Mississippi’s busiest and best demographic strip of Interstate,” Wilson said.
The 5.5-acre location across from Renaissance will be Wilson’s second Hyundai dealership in metro Jackson, joining Wilson Hyundai at 4202 Lakeland Drive in Flowood.
The Interstate dealership is housed in a newly remodeled building that Wilson labeled the latest Hyundai “Image Facility.”
Wilson created the new dealership from the purchase of Herb Nelson Hyundai in Canton and the relocation of the Hyundai franchise and assets to the Ridgeland location.
“We initially are employing 30 Mississippians and plan to increase to 50 by mid-summer,” he said.
