Our Story | Ken Mills Sunshine Coast
The Ken Mills Toyota Story
Twenty years, around 100 wonderful staff, two state-of-the-art workshops and countless awards - the Ken Mills Toyota story keeps growing and evolving.
Yes, Toyota may be in the Mills’ family DNA, but the Ken Mills Toyota story is not just about us. Our “About Us” is about the whole Ken Mills Toyota family, and they don’t all have the Mills surname. It’s about Jess Freeman, our Cheif Financial Officer who has been with Ken Mills Toyota for over 14 years. It's about Tony Hunter who has been with the company since before the Mills Family took over the dealership in 2002 and Taylah, one of our Service Advisors who saw so many friends lose jobs during the 2020 downturn but felt secure because Ken Mills Toyota is her “other family.” We’ve been a part of the Sunshine Coast business community for decades, and that’s our story – and the reason our customers keep coming back.
The Ken Mills Toyota Vision and Values.
When you think of Toyota, our goal is to be top of mind, that Ken Mills Toyota is the obvious choice. Everything we do is with the vision to be the most recommended dealer on the Sunshine Coast.
At Ken Mills Toyota, we strive to:
- Deliver excellent value and service to Sunshine Coast locals
- Build a sustainable and engaging workplace where employees feel valued
- Engage in community philanthropy that will leave a legacy for the Sunshine Coast region, especially in the area of child health and wellbeing.
Ken Mills Toyota Sunshine Coast
Ken Mills Toyota has two dealerships here on the Sunshine Coast, making it the biggest Toyota dealership in the region. Since 2002, the Maroochydore and Nambour sites have been home to hundreds of local staff and thousands of wonderful customers.
Brett Mills (aka Millsy)
Brett Mills was born into the Toyota family. He and wife Caroline are Sunshine Coast locals and own and operate the family business – Brett himself is in the dealership every day. Toyota is in Brett’s blood. Like his dad before him, Brett and Caroline believe that the very best local business is always where the staff feel like part of the family and customers know that they can always rely on “Ken Mills Toyota” for a good, honest deal.
Business Can Change Communities!
Being the biggest Toyota dealership in the region comes with the opportunity to make a big impact on local communities - and it’s a responsibility that Brett and Caroline take very seriously. Committed to making the Sunshine Coast an even better place to live for all locals, they actively participate in charitable activities and events to empower Sunny Coast locals to pursue dreams and live well.
You can learn more about Ken Mills Toyota’s community partners here but locals all know about ‘Millsy’s Pop-Up Restaurant’ which has raised in excess of $250,000 in the last five years for Sunshine Coast children’s charities - SunnyKids & Give Me 5 for Kids.
With over $150,000 donated annually, and our Netball partnership program, we’re very proud of the impact we are making on the Sunshine Coast community.
In 2018, the Ken Mills Toyota Ambassador Program launched with six Professional netballers partnering with the business - an association of which we are very proud.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Ken Mills Toyota to be the #1 Choice for Locals. From Maleny to Woombye, Bli Bli to Palmwoods, Ken Mills Toyota is the #1 Choice on the Sunshine Coast.
