"The Valenti name has been associated with the automobile business for over 90 years"

The first Valenti automobile dealership was opened in the 1920's by Bob's father, Ferdinand Valenti Sr., in Wallingford, CT. Today Valenti Auto Sales continues on at that same location. In 1973, Mystic, CT became the second dealer location when Bob opened Bob Valenti Chevrolet there. Ten years later in 1983, as business flourished, Bob Valenti Chevrolet moved to its current location on Jerry Browne Rd in Mystic. During that same year, Bob Valenti opened Village Ford on Rte 1 in Stonington, CT. A year later, Village Ford relocated to its current location next to Valenti Chevrolet and was later renamed Valenti Ford.

In 1989, Bob was awarded a Chrysler Dodge Plymouth franchise for his dealerships' outstanding commitment to customer satisfaction. This new franchise was located at Jerry Browne Rd next to Valenti Ford on the ever-expanding complex.

Then, in 1993, the Jeep Eagle brands were added to the Chrysler store creating an extremely unique, one-of-a-kind shopping destination where customers could purchase vehicles from the "Big 3" all at one location.

In 1986, carrying on the family tradition that his grandfather began 65 years before, Rob Valenti, Bob's son, joined the business. In good Valenti fashion, Rob helped to further grow the business when he and his cousins purchased a Volkswagen dealership in Groton, CT. Then in 2002, the Volkswagen franchise expanded to two locations; Old Saybrook on Middlesex Turnpike and Mystic at the Bob Valenti Auto Mall. The Valenti Auto Mall now offered customers the opportunity to shop for Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, and Volkswagen vehicles all at one location.

Always looking for opportunities to improve the service and selection offered its customers, Bob Valenti purchased Valenti Toyota in 1998 and located the franchise at Dunn's Corners in Westerly, RI. Now, the Valenti family could offer its exceptional service to both Connecticut and Rhode Island residents. In 2008, Rob Valenti added Valenti Subaru to the Valenti Family of Dealerships, locating it next to Valenti Toyota in Westerly, RI. This brought the total of Valenti family dealerships to 9 manufacturers in three locations.

Keeping the small town family feel to all of his dealerships was easy for Bob as he kept his family involved in the business with his son, Rob, and daughters, Cheryl, Beth, and Jean, all taking active rolls throughout the dealerships. Now, the next generation is continuing the family tradition with five of Ferdinand's great-grandsons now serving as managers in the Valenti group.

With all the years and all the growth, one thing has remained a constant, the Valenti commitment to customer satisfaction.

After 90 years of providing customers with the Valenti value, honesty, integrity, and enjoyable experience, the Valenti family is grateful for your patronage and looks forward to working with you in the future.
