Priority Toyota Chesapeake Wins Prestigious National 'Best in Town' Award

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Priority Toyota Chesapeake has been named Toyota Motor Corporation's prestigious 'Best in Town' award winner for 2019.

The award, established in 2014 by Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda, is presented to just one United States Toyota dealership each year. Priority Toyota Chesapeake received the award during Toyota's National Dealer Meeting for a unique and groundbreaking program that trains non-violent Norfolk City Jail inmates as automotive technicians.

"To be the only Toyota dealership in the nation selected to receive this award is truly a great honor," said Priority Automotive Owner and President Dennis Ellmer. "Our company is proud of these men, and proud of this program's ability to help them make a difference in their lives. This award is a win for them, too, along with our entire community."

Launched in 2018 in partnership with the Norfolk Sheriff's Department and Tidewater Community College, the Priority Inmate Technician Training Program trains non-violent Norfolk City Jail inmates as auto technicians while they are still incarcerated. After completing the rigorous 2-year program, the trainees are hired as full-time Priority technicians with full benefits. Officials believe that by helping the inmates re-enter society with tangible trade skills, they can help reduce chronic jail recidivism while helping Priority meet a critical need for highly trained automotive technicians.

"I want to emphasize that this was a total team effort by many people including Governor Ralph Northam, Norfolk Mayor Kenny Alexander, Sheriff Joe Baron and the incredible staff at Tidewater Community College," Ellmer said.  "This was not just a Priority Toyota program but a community wide effort."

Of the program's initial 15 trainees, 14 completed the program and graduated from Tidewater Community College in May. They are now all working as full-time Priority employees, while a new class of inmates begins the program.

Along with other nominees, Priority Toyota Chesapeake submitted a special video about the program, which was played during last week's National Dealer Meeting.

Although Company President Toyoda created the Best in Town award, he insists on leaving it up to local dealerships -- people who work with local customers every day -- to decide the award's annual recipient.

"Everyone says Toyota is the best company in the world," Akio Toyoda has said, "but the customer doesn't care about the world. They care if we are the best in town or not. That's what I want to be."
