The Landers family opened its first car dealership in Benton, Arkansas, in 1972. A father-and-son team, Bob Landers and son Steve grew the business from a single used car lot to the #1 Chrysler dealer in the world by the 1990s. Over the years, Landers partnered with other automotive giants to expand the business across the region and country. Continuing the father-and-son tradition, Landers brought his sons Steve Jr. and Scott into the car business to continue the family legacy.
Watching and learning from his dad, Scott Landers grew the Landers Auto Group of today to seven dealerships in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Scott Landers passed away tragically in 2020, but his team continues the family-first, customer-focused tradition the Landers name will always stand for. Landers dealerships are continually recognized for their high performance in sales, customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and operations.

Employees of Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram think of Laura Mullinax as the mom of the dealership. She’s the customer relations manager, but she does more than making sure customers are loving their vehicles and helping resolve any problems that may arise. Mullinax does a little bit of everything and is an essential resource for everybody there.
"I do a lot of support for the staff," she said. "I’m kind of like an operations manager because I make sure things run smoothly at the store."
"I worked on cars a lot growing up and it kept my interest because no two are the same, even though they’re mass produced," Jones said. "They’re going to have different problems."
Jones has been here at Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for seven years and has been the service manager for the last year and a half. He also worked at Landers Toyota, and ran the use vehicle shop when Big Steve owned the Landers dealerships in Benton.
Clifford Glover loves classic Toyota vehicles.
"My favorite thing is dealing with old vehicles," Glover said "I love old school Toyotas and the old school Land Cruiser is a cool one. I love the 1990 Previa because it looked like a school bus. It’s awesome."
Glover is a parts and accessories advisor at Landers Toyota and he works on the retail side of the department, mainly dealing with customers. He’s been at the dealership since Aug. 13, 2012, when he was 18-years-old. He started as a delivery driver and moved to parts two years ago.
