Haas first opened its doors in 1970 and has since flourished and grown into a multi-generational family-owned and operated enterprise, with three dealerships throughout the Houston area. Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit, he purchased his first two appliance businesses at the ages of 22 and 27. At the age of 30, he sold his appliance businesses and used his savings to begin buying and selling cars. Over the last 50 years, his hard work, determination and vision have made Fred Haas a perennial leader in both sales and customer service.

The flagship store, Fred Haas Toyota World in Spring, TX, has been the No. 1 volume Toyota dealership in Texas for 17 years and the No. 1 volume Tundra dealership in the world for 14 years. In 2002, the company added its second Toyota store, Fred Haas Toyota Country to better serve the northwest side of the city. These two Toyota stores are among the most highly decorated in the country, both perennial winners of the Toyota President’s Award for outstanding sales and customer service. To add to this winning tradition, in 2008 the company expanded into Tomball with Fred Haas Nissan. The Nissan store immediately established itself as an automotive retail leader, winning many of Nissan’s top dealership honors, including the Nissan Award of Excellence and 2020 Nissan Global Award.

Haas attributes his company’s success and longevity to his family, the community and always putting the customer first. The dealer group currently employs over 700 associates. Haas said he has had the privilege of supporting numerous causes within the community, with his most cherished philanthropies including the MD Anderson Cancer Center, the University of Houston and the Fred Haas Scholarship Fund, a program designed to help deserving area high school students attend college.
