'American dream': Cuban immigrant owner of top-selling Chevy dealership expands to Manassas

WASHINGTON — Florida-based Bomnin Chevrolet, founded by a Cuban immigrant in 2010, opened its third location April 11 in Manassas, Virginia, across from the Westgate Plaza, and says it is committed to creating career opportunities for Hispanics.

Bomnin Chevrolet Dadeland was the top Chevy dealer by sales volume in March, according to General Motors. Both Bomnin Chevy Dadeland and its second dealership, Bomnin Chevrolet West Kendall are among the top 10 Chevrolet dealerships in the country. The two locations sold 1,430 new and used vehicles in March.

Arnaldo Bomnin came to Miami after escaping Cuba in 1996, and initially sold seafood out of a truck near a row of dealerships on weekends, landscaped during the day and attended English classes at night.

The general manager of a Miami car dealership offered Bomnin a job selling cars.

After working his way up to general manager at a Chevy dealership, Bomnin acquired Kendall Chevrolet in Miami, his first dealership.

“We are excited to open our doors to the Washington, D.C. area and are ready to become an asset to the community,” Bomnin said. I myself am a product of the American dream. To bring our unparalleled work ethic, customer care and success to the capital is an amazing opportunity.”

Bomnin says his Manassas dealership will tap into the large Hispanic community to make its management and staff as diverse as possible.

Bomnin Chevrolet Manassas is located at 8000 Sudley Road.
