Fifteen years ago, Steve Okenfuss opened a motorcycle shop in a dilapidated building near 135th Street and Holmes Road in Martin City, Missouri. Today, Reno’s Powersports is growing so fast that Okenfuss said he needs to expand the facility for the third time.
“When we built our first warehouse in 2008, we anticipated the need for a second one within 10 years,” said Okenfuss. “We are on track to make that happen and look forward to the extra space.”
The new warehouse will be 10,800 square feet, a mirror image of the existing one. It will be dedicated to storage and inspection of inventory, while the existing warehouse will be converted into a second showroom.
“The expansion will give us a consolidated space for our inventory and double our showroom space for customers,” said Okenfuss.
Reno’s has expanded several times over the years. Okenfuss immediately renovated the original building in 2001 when he first moved in. In 2005, he expanded the facility by adding a parts and service department. He then constructed the existing warehouse in 2008 to provide storage for inventory.
Okenfuss is currently working with the city of Kansas City, MO, to get a building permit, which he hopes to have soon. Syler Construction is the general contractor on the project, and construction will take about four months once the permit is obtained.
Reno’s continues to prove that they are one of the strongest dealerships in the United States, repeatedly winning top performance titles with motorsports manufacturers. They are one of the leading motorsports dealerships in Kansas City, featuring Yamaha, Can-Am, Sea-Doo, Wave Runner, Spyder, Ducati, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Vespa, Piaggio, EBR (Eric Buell Racing) and Ural.
They are also a Pro Yamaha, Can Am Platinum Level, Wave Runner High Output CSI, Ducati Sales Specialist store with a 5 Star Certified Service Department.
Reno’s Powersports is a huge asset to the Martin City business community and we are excited to see them expanding once again!
