Over the years, Moreno would grow his business from a single dealership into an impressive collection of luxury dealerships across several states including, Mercedes-Benz (two locations), AMG, Porsche, Aston Martin, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz Vans (two locations), Rolls-Royce, INFINITI (Four locations), Volkswagen, Buick and GMC.
