Gateway Honda in Port Richey has new name, owner


Gateway Honda has new name, new ownership

One of Pasco County's oldest auto dealerships, Gateway Honda, has changed hands. An Indiana group with a Florida corporation called NPR HON has taken the helm at Gateway Honda, which is now going by the name Honda of Port Richey. Gateway had been in Tom Wood's family for nearly 30 years. The Woods forged new territory when they opened the dealership in Port Richey, becoming the northernmost new auto dealership in the Tampa Bay area at the time. The dealership moved to its present-day digs, at the southeast corner of U.S. 19 and Ridge Road, in late 2005. Wood could not be reached for comment.
