2021 marks Capitol Toyota’s 50th anniversary. The Salem, Oregon-based dealership started in April 1971.
Diana Davis, General Manager, Toyota Portland Region, presented the corporation’s 50th Anniversary Recognition to the Casebeer family.
Davis said, “Scott Casebeer and his sons Matthew and Alex represent the very best of the Toyota brand by demonstrating a strong commitment to their employees, customers, and community every day. We congratulate the Casebeer family and the entire team at Capitol for 50 years of Excellence with Toyota.”
The business started as Crown Toyota and was sold to Lester Green and Wayne Hadley in a closed bid process in 1971. The dealership moved to Mission Street in Salem in 1973, where they remained for 30 years. In 1986 Scott Casebeer became the dealer and owner and was the youngest Toyota dealer in the world at that time. Capitol Toyota opened at its present location on the Salem Parkway in 2011. Matthew Casebeer became the dealer in 2020.
