Bill and Penny Miller started Millers Auto out of their home in 1996 on SR 8 in Knox. Bill worked a full time job during the day and in the evening from 5-10 and Saturdays he would run the business. Penny was also running a tanning salon out of her home while raising 4 children at the same time. Bill was Salesman, Mechanic, Tire installer as well as whatever else needed to be done. After a year he hired a mechanic to work full time during the day and take appointments. Bill would work at night.
In 1998 Penny gave up the tanning business and joined the Miller’s Auto team full time. At this time they also started a wholesale car business in addition to retail. Later that year Bill also quit his job and joined full time. The next year they added on to their garage on SR 8 and added an alignment machine and started adding employees.
In 2000 they purchased the property on SR 35 (6500 square feet) and started running a furniture business called Miller’s Quality Furniture. In 2001 they closed the furniture business to further the Auto business. A remodel was done and they moved to their current location. They were able to increase the amount of service and tire business they could do as well as the retail and wholesale business.
In 2003 they added on to the SR 8 building to accommodate the growth also adding more employees. They were now up to 9 employees.
In 2011 they began doing financing for vehicles and began to build the retail business.
2014 they hired a full time sales person. As the retail business began to grow they expanded in into Winamac in 2016. They opened a new location in Plymouth in 2017. Miller’s is now a 16 person business.
