Minnesota Truck Headquarters is a Family-Owned and Operated Dealership, with Over FIFTEEN YEARS in the Auto Business!
From Modest Beginnings
You would never guess it from the name, but Minnesota Truck Headquarters got its start as a trailers-only dealership in 2004. The Jordet family started out selling only trailers. At the time, small cargo, medium sized single car, large 3-4 car haulers, and enclosed trailers was the name of the game. In April of 2004, they opened their trailer lot in St. Cloud to the public. Business was good, yet they always knew there was something more just around the corner. They were looking for their niche!
One summer day, one of their customers was in the market for a new single car hauler. He asked if they ever took automobiles in on trade-in. The love of cars and trucks has been in the Jordet family's blood going back four generations. They had never sold an automobile on the lot before and thought “What do we have to lose?” The first investment in an automobile was a 1989 Honda CRX Hatchback. They took a shoe marker, wrote a price on the window, and sold that little Honda on the same day! St. Cloud Auto Sales was born. Eventually the lot in South St. Cloud had 15 vehicles, all $3,000 and under.
The Adventure Continues
They continued to build on that momentum and in 2006, became a wholesale dealership selling over 100 vehicles a month and retailing vehicles on the lot at wholesale prices. They stocked a little bit of everything: cars, trucks, vans and SUVs. It was then they began selling heavy duty commercial equipment on eBay as well.
As the inventory and company began to grow they soon ran out of room at the South St. Cloud location. In 2012, a second location was opened in St. Joseph, MN to house the cars, vans and SUVs leaving the trucks at the St. Cloud location. With the addition of the inventory from the St. Joseph location, they knew they had to expand their service department. When the building adjacent from the St. Cloud location became available, they jumped on the opportunity right away. Now with three locations they were able to convert the former service facility into the Custom Trucks Shop where they began customizing their trucks with lift kits, big tires, big rims, performance accessories, custom paint and much more!
In 2013, they were stocking the St. Joseph location with mostly trucks. For over a year, they were selling trucks, trucks and more trucks! They became known as the place to go when you were looking for a custom truck! They became known as the Minnesota Truck Headquarters. They had finally found their niche! They dedicated the St. Cloud location to diesel trucks, and the St. Joseph location to all gas trucks. They continued to stock over 200 trucks on both lots at all times, but were outgrowing both locations yet again.
In March of 2017 work began on the new Minnesota Truck Headquarters location on Highway 23 NE in St. Cloud, MN. One mega location with everything under one roof. The doors to the NEW Minnesota Truck Headquarters opened in August 2017. The new location holds 300 trucks and they still have the south St. Cloud lot for Commercial Trucks.
The new Minnesota Truck Headquarters dealership offers an amazing experience for everyone. The facility is of course full of trucks along with seventeen service bays for any and all service or accessory needs.
