May 2022 Penz Newsletter

Company Newsletter May 2022

Dear Penz Community,

As summer rolls in let’s remember what it’s all about, helping our guests love what they drive, whether that is on the sales, service, parts, or collision center side of the business.

Check out all the great work we did in April and what you can look forward to the rest of May and June!


Todd Penz

“Love What You Drive”

We have a history of doing things a bit different in the car industry, from our lifetime powertrain warranty to making our own rap videos including Santa Drives a SubaruCar Biz Blues, and the notorious, Cause a Stir.

Todd strives to be unique so when he had the idea to create another original song, he met with the marketing team to see how to make that happen. The team went to work writing and telling the story of the Penz Auto Group.

Professional musicians were called in and a date set to record our new hit single at Carpet Booth Studios.

April Sponsorships and Upcoming Events

Share the Love & Penz Holiday Giving

To wrap up our biggest sponsorships of the year we presented MN Adult & Teen Challenge with checks from the Subaru Share the Love Event and Penz Holiday Giving.
