The story of Peppers Automotive began in 1965 when Rufus Peppers opened Peppers Imported Cars, Inc., in South Bend, Indiana.  The Peppers family acquired several franchises throughout the next 20 years and in 1986, Rufus followed his life-long love of fishing to Paris, Tennessee--and the rest is history!

The Peppers family negotiated the purchase of Bob Cole Chrysler Dodge Plymouth in Paris, and opened for business in January 1987.  Peppers opened the Chevrolet Oldsmobile Cadillac dealership in 1991, and continued to grow their family & the business.

The Peppers family entered the Toyota business by acquiring Ed Groves Toyota & building a new showroom in 1996-1997.  We have been fortunate to serve the Paris, Tennessee & surrounding area for over 30 years with new & pre-owned auto sales, certified Toyota service, and OEM Toyota parts. 

In 2014 Peppers Toyota opened our brand new facility at 2400 East Wood Street (Lake Highway 79) in Paris, Tennessee.  We are honored to be voted your Favorite New Vehicle Dealer in The Paris Post-Intelligencer Readers' Choice Award 4 years in a row!

The Peppers Automotive family continues to take an active role in supporting our community.  You'll find us involved in many great events in the region, including:

  • The Peppers Automotive Group annual Grade A+ Car Giveaway for high-achieving graduating seniors--each year a lucky graduate receives a brand new vehicle!
  • The Peppers Automotive Group annual "Trunk or Treat" Halloween party--we give away over 3500 pounds of candy each Halloween (and support the local dentists!)
  • Donations to the American Cancer Society's annual Relay for Life
  • Donations of backpacks & school supplies to prepare our children for the upcoming school year
  • Annual donations to various local athletics fundraisers, including the Henry County Quarterback Club, Murray High School soccer team, and many others
  • Charitable donations to Henry County Helping Hand, Inc.
  • Peppers Automotive Group supports the annual Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival, bringing the best in blues to the Lakes area of Western Kentucky and Northwest Tennessee, the weekend before Labor Day Weekend
