Sonny Ali - Owner
Sonny is the founder and owner of 1st Choice Autos, LLC. Since coming to this country and becoming a citizen, Sonny has been a vital part of the community in Salisbury. He has managed several convenience stores, and in 2010 he opened a convenience store, Friendly Food Mart, in an underserved part of the community. In 2015, Sonny started 1st Choice Autos, LLC, next to Friendly Food Mart. When asked why he chose to start a car dealership, Sonny, said: "Salisbury has been a great community to live in. I am so grateful for all the opportunities that this community has given to me. It has been a wonderful place to start a family, and I am excited as I watch my daughters grow and take advantage of the many things that Salisbury has to offer. I knew that I wanted to give back to the community, and starting a used car dealership that offers quality, affordable cars is one way to do that."
Sonny is well known as a long-distance runner in our area. He has completed 7 marathons. The last marathon was the New York Marathon in 2019 before the pandemic. He has also trained other runners in the area. When asked what running has to do with car sales, Sonny says: "Well, as a runner I had to work hard, train every day, give 100% effort all the time, and always do my best. It's the same with selling cars. It takes a lot of work, and you always have to give your best to serving the needs of your customers."
