Partners with our Community

Partners with our Community

At Kenosha Toyota our overarching vision is, “To be so effective that we are able to be helpful to others,” and we carry that vision over to the community where we live and work. We believe it is both our gift and our responsibility to be good neighbors and partners with the communities which provide us our success. We are excited to engage with the Kenosha community.


Our History

Kenosha Toyota is excited to open our doors to the community in early September 2021.  We are on a mission to do things differently than other automotive dealers by focusing our efforts on providing unmatched quality automotive products and service and implementing the ‘Best Price Philosophy’. We strive to provide a more relaxed, honest and enjoyable car buying experience. We aim to exceed our customers’ and employees’ expectations, maintaining their loyalty for a lifetime. We recognize the greatest resource we have is our employees and we never take that for granted. We strive to fill open positions within our ranks first, creating career paths for many of our employees regardless of where they start in our company.

We are very proud of our culture which largely comes from being a part of the Rydell Auto Group. The Rydell Auto Group was founded in 1954 and has grown into a group of 85 stores in 17 states! Our Founder, Leonard Rydell, had many strongly held business and personal philosophies that served him well. These philosophies, known as “Leonardism’s”, help guide us through our daily business and personal decisions. Some of our favorite “Leonardism’s” are…

“Never take advantage of a customer, even if you can.”
“Put yourself in a position to take care of as many people as possible.”
“Seek excellence, and the rest will follow.”

Customer Enthusiasm
Employee Satisfaction
Financial Performance
Market Effectiveness
Ongoing Improvement

Our philosophy holds that each area is of equal importance and we continually strive to reach a level of excellence in each area. However, in any planning or decision-making process, or in any situation of seeming conflict or contradiction among the five critical areas, Customer Enthusiasm will always carry the most weight.

I started my career in the dealership industry during the early 90’s and have worked my way up through various general office positions. Now, after nearly 30 years of dealership experience, I am excited to bring my extensive knowledge to the team here at Kenosha Toyota.

Steve Brandon

General Manager

I started my dealership career in the fall of 2003 at a Buick Pontiac GMC store in the Twin Cities. For the next 13 years of my career, I worked at various stores in the dealer group, always chasing opportunities as a Finance Manager, Finance Director, and Sales Manager. In the fall of 2016, I had the opportunity to work at a Toyota store in northern Minnesota. I spent almost 5 years there as both the Used Car Manager and the New Car Manager and then ultimately made the decision to come to work for Kenosha Toyota and take on an all-new challenge as our General Sales Manager.

Bryan Lovas

General Manager

My career with The Rydell Company started in 2001 as a Service Manager at Gilleland Chevrolet in St. Cloud, MN and then I was excited to learn a whole other part of the dealership when I moved into the role of Used Car Manager. I then had an amazing opportunity to learn the Finance side of the business as Finance Director at Saturn of St. Paul, another Rydell dealership. I then returned to my roots as Service and Parts Director in North Dakota before I brought all my skills together to assume the role of General Manager at Rochester Toyota in 2016. I am grateful for my journey since it has brought me to where I am today … the General Manager at Kenosha Toyota! I’m excited to continue my career here and to build an amazing team of people who are as excited about learning, growing, and developing as I am.

I believe in our culture and that we have nothing of greater value than our people. I believe that by respecting the uniqueness of every individual, we’ll build an amazing team of confident, creative members possessing a high degree of initiative, self-respect and self discipline.
