Fletcher Automotive Group plans to increase its presence in Missouri by opening a Jefferson City Kia dealership on June 18.

Brent Lobanoff, Fletcher's executive vice president, said the dealership will fill a niche in Jefferson City, since the closest Kia dealer is in Columbia.

The Arkansas-based company will temporarily locate the local dealership at the old Auffenberg car lot at the corner of Jefferson Street and Stadium Boulevard.
