The ads are quick, often seemingly improvised on the spot, and rarely the same exact ad twice, but they’ve all got the same common threads: Billy Fuccillo, owner of Fuccillo Kia of Cape Coral, along with a cast of characters, telling you that everything is “HUGE.”
You probably even read the catchphrase in Fuccillo’s voice.
But the car dealer in charge of an expansive lot in Cape Coral, one of 30 between Florida and New York, is seeking a replacement for his right-hand woman in many of those ads.
“That’s the style I believe in,” Fuccillo said. “If you look at most dealerships and most car companies, they’ll run the same commercial for like three weeks. We want to mix them all up, we want to run 25 or 40 commercials in the span of three weeks, and we want to get the message out there on all of our ...
Billy Fuccillo, owner of Fuccillo Kia in Cape Coral, wants to make someone a TV commercial superstar.
Caroline Renfro, Fuccillo’s longtime TV commercial partner, has resigned. Although at first Fuccillo said she was moving to Roanoke, Virginia, where she would train to become a nun, the car dealer backtracked on that during an interview with The News-Press. On Thursday, Fuccillo said Renfro’s departure, an amicable one, was also a mysterious one. He had heard a number of rumors but couldn’t confirm any of them.
Renfro, an actress and Charlotte, North Carolina resident, could not be reached for comment.
“Who knows?” Fuccillo said of Renfro’s future. “She called me the ...
Fuccillo doesn’t often receive gifts, but when the Bosnian prime minister offers you a Bengal tiger as a token of gratitude, you take it. Sasha is 7 years old, and when she’s hungry, she’ll let you know about it.
“At ease Sasha,” Fuccillo mumbles. “Daddy’s home.”
Three uncooked filet mignon steaks later, and Fuccillo begins his morning preparations. He is still moving all of his belongings into the mansion he rented from Derek Jeter in Tampa, Florida, so his palace looks more like a Minecraft map with boxes scattered across the premises. This doesn’t distract Fuccillo from getting ready: Armani suit, gold Rolex and a Livestrong-style bracelet engraved with a four-letter word that rhymes with luge.
At the airport, he pulls into his normal spot in the hangar and heads to the Fuccillo Jet, fully equipped with ...
Billy Fuccillo beckoned.
“Come and check out mine,” Fuccillo said of his white Kia Soul, similar to the 96 new ones available on his lot. His car featured an upgraded, 201 horsepower engine, leather seats, a navigation system and a panoramic sunroof.
“Of all the manufacturers I’ve represented in more than 30 years, the Soul is the only car that appeals to 18- and 19-year-olds and 78- and 80-year olds,” Fuccillo said. “People who are 52 like the Soul. People who are 32. People who are 18. People who are 80.”
Prior to Fuccillo Kia opening in December, 2010 at 404 NE Pine Island Road, in Cape Coral, no Kia-branded cars made the top 10 list of new, registered cars in the combined areas of Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties.
Every year since 2011, at least three and sometimes four ...
According to the Daily Gazette, Fuccillo will be in the area to film commercials. McCarthy told the Gazette the auto dealer is being recognized for his work with a handful of nonprofit organizations. Fuccillo has supported groups that help domestic violence victims, veterans, hunger relief, disability services and more.
Fuccillo owns Fuccillo Automotive Group which has dealerships in Florida and upstate New York, including Syracuse, Watertown, Buffalo, Rochester and the Capital Region.
His famous line in car commercials typically ends with: "It's huge!"
Or, more accurately, "IT'S HUUUUGE-GA!!!"
But did you know that's also what Fuccillo calls his official corporation in paperwork filed with New York State? It's Huge Inc., has its own state ID: 3138034 and date of filing: Dec. 15, ...
Fuccillo, the ubiquitous owner of Fuccillo Automotive Group and star of TV commercials, was at the Rivers Casino & Resort to film new spots — and receive the key to the city from Mayor Gary McCarthy.
In accepting the honor, Fuccillo compared Schenectady's progress in recent years with the progress of the car brand Kia.
He recalled Kia franchises going from "really bad" 20 years ago to now "No. 1 in initial quality over all franchises" over the last two years.
"It reminded me a lot of Schenectady when I came through Schenectady today," Billy Fuccillo said, adding his trademark phrase. "You're making a HUGE comeback."
McCarthy handed Billy Fuccillo the key to the city in a brief ceremony, citing Fuccillo's employment and charity work. (The plaque included a large, ceremonial key, not, say, ...
Or, more accurately, "IT'S HUUUUGE-GA!!!"
But did you know that's also what Fuccillo calls his official corporation in paperwork filed with New York State?
It's Huge Inc., has it's own state ID: 3138034 and date of filing: Dec. 15, 2004. That's according to Department of State corporation records.
The chief executive officer is "William B. Fuccillo" and it's registered on U.S. Route 11 in Adams -- the home of Fuccillo's first dealership.
It's Huge Inc is not the only company Fuccillo's auto empire has spawned, or even the first. In fact, the state filing shows its sister company has a much more bland title: Fuccillo Automotive Group. And Fuccillo has been selling cars for three decades, long before forming It's Huge Inc.
All told, there are 30 separate businesses now registered in New York State with the ...
You know him for his "huge" car sales, but Fuccillo Automotive Group owner Billy Fuccillo is known to one Florida war veteran as something of a savior.
Gordon Page, an 85-year-old Korean War Veteran, made news last week when his home where he and his wife care for three other vets was flooded, WIVB-TVreported.
Fuccillo saw the story, felt a connection to Page, and decided to help by pledging to pay for almost all of the repairs required.
"My dad's 92 now, so I know a little about what went on way back, especially with war veterans," Fuccillo told WFLA-TV in Florida, where he owns several dealerships.
In total, Fuccillo wrote a check for $30,000. $25,000 of that came out of his own pocket, and $5,000 came from donations by Fuccillo employees.
"Before you put your head on the pillow at night, it's always good to make sure you do the right thing for people," Fuccillo said. "The Lord has blessed me. I say ...
Let's talk about his charity work:
Billy has "Huge" heart for needy people. In 2015 Billy Fuccillo has announced that his dealership has donated $100,000 to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Harry Chapin Food Bank provides food to more than 30,000 people through a network of 150 partner agencies every month. Last fiscal year, the food bank distributed 18.4 million pounds of food and ...
