In 2012, the Fornaca family commemorated 100 years as one of San Diego's oldest continuously operated family businesses. It's a story of hard work, perseverance and caring for the community. In 1912, after arriving from Italy, Mario Fornaca opened the doors to his bakery in San Diego with the aroma of fresh baked bread. His sons Frank and Felice grew the Fornaca bakery from humble beginnings to the largest in San Diego.

 In 1965, the Fornaca family expanded their business by opening Frank Lincoln Mercury and shortly thereafter, Frank Toyota. Through the years they added Hyundai, Subaru, Frank Used Car Center, Frank Auto Service and Mighty Auto Parts San Diego. The business has been passed on to the next generations with son Ron Fornaca and son-in-law Gary Fenelli running the dealerships. Today, up to seven family members work on a daily basis at the Frank Motors Group with the same commitment to customer care as Mario Fornaca established 100 years ago. The Fornaca family is proud to support the community and thanks all of you for your business over the years.
