Lee’s Summit Mazda on Oldham Parkway is now called Eddy’s Mazda of Lee’s Summit. On June 25, Brandon Steven of Wichita, KS closed a deal to purchase the car dealership to add to his eight existing auto dealerships in the Wichita area.

He and his family have had a tremendous impact in the Wichita area due to his eight auto dealerships and the non-profit charity organization to help youth in Wichita with athletic scholarships to help build character and self-esteem.

Steven explains, “My family and I are incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities the community of Wichita and its people have given us. We will continue to reinvest in Wichita, philanthropically and economically. But, it is also time for us to spread our wings and let reach its full potential. We are excited to venture into Kansas City and explore how we can positively impact the community.”

Steven and his team have immediate plans for a million dollar renovation at Eddy’s Mazda that will feature an expanded lot and display area that will hold at least twice the inventory from which to shop.

On July 5, Brandon used a golden shovel to metaphorically and literally break ground on his expansion of dealerships into the Kansas City market.

Let’s welcome Brandon and his team as they expand into Lee’s Summit and look forward to experiencing their people-first approach in the auto sales industry!
