He started his venture in the automotive industry by operating an authorized service center for Volkswagen, and eventually being awarded a full dealership status and expanding to Cabanatuan City, Santiago City, Nueva Viscaya and Tuguegarao. Over the years, these dealerships would evolve with the political and economic conditions of the times from Volkswagen to Ford and later to Nissan.
Reaping success from its business operations in Luzon, with the economy having stabilized, Mr. San Juan shifted and focused his business interest in Metro Manila. Thus, Sunny Motor Sales, Inc. was established in 1987 along Quezon Avenue, where dealerships of Fiat, Mazda, Daihatsu, and later Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Subaru, Kia and Hyundai would be housed.
The years 1994, 1995 and 1996 were the best years the automotive industry has ever had in its history. This prompted The ESJAY Auto Group to establish what would be their landmark dealership in Metro Manila. Then considered as the largest dealership not only in the Philippines, but in Asia, Nissan Commonwealth, Inc. inaugurated its facilities on August 5, 1996.
