Growing to meet the needs of our communities.
From a small one-brand, family business operation, Triple J Enterprises has grown over the years to a sophisticated group of companies with subsidiaries throughout Micronesia.
Led by Robert H. Jones’ entrepreneurial astuteness, Triple J has invested in a wide variety of business interests outside the automotive field. With a reputation for business integrity and perseverance, coupled with the talents, tenacity and community dedication of the Jones family and a hardworking assembly of management and staff, it comes as no surprise that Triple J Enterprises has been consistently ranked among the top 100 companies in Micronesia.
Triple J Motors continues to be the flagship company of the group, with a stellar reputation in Guam and Saipan. Its distributorships of cars, SUVs, trucks and commercial vehicles include global brand names such as Ford, Honda, Acura, Lincoln, Mazda, Volvo, Kia, Isuzu, Mitsubishi and Hyundai, complemented by its parts and service departments staffed by highly trained and certified auto mechanics. Synergistic with its automobile dealership business is Triple J’s Commercial Tire and Battery Center which distributes top brands of tires for passenger and commercial vehicles such as BF Goodrich, Yokohama, Michelin and Kumho. Buoyed by the upswing of the tourism industry in the region in the mid-2000s, Triple J was awarded the area franchise of Hertz Rent-A-Car in Guam, Saipan and Palau. The Hertz franchise offers one of the largest fleets of rental cars for short and long-term leasing.
Food and Restaurant
Other divisions of the group have also helped to keep the Triple J brand top of mind among its trade and retail customers. In the food division, Triple J Five Star Wholesale Foods operates the wholesale food distribution business in various geographies of Micronesia. The wholesale food distribution business counts among its trade customers several of Guam’s and Saipan’s top hotels, restaurants and retail grocery stores. Triple J also has had presence in the retail grocery store business in the Marshall Islands for 27 years. Triple J Restaurant Group operates popular restaurant franchises such as Outback Steakhouse in Guam, Capricciosa and Tony Roma’s in Saipan, as well as Truong’s Vietnamese restaurants in Guam and Saipan.
Doing business with Triple J also affords its partners outstanding air, sea and overland rail and truck transport solutions through the company’s Northern California-based freight forwarding subsidiary, Mighal International Inc doing business as Triple J Merchant Services. Located in Oakland, Triple J Merchant Services serves as a distribution center for merchandise shipping to the various Triple J subsidiaries and branches in Guam, CNMI and the rest of Micronesia. The distribution services provide a way to receive goods in a timely manner and to import container loads of products directly.
Another benefit of setting up a close business alliance with Triple J is the access to the wealth of knowledge of local market conditions from its real estate consulting and brokerage subsidiary. Robert Jones had a hand in initiating the discussion that introduced and eventually brought Kmart to open on Guam in 1996. Triple J real estate division’s expertise and knowledge about U.S. federal and local government housing programs provided the company the foundation to enter the affordable residential development business. In 2010, through the U.S. Treasury’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program, Triple J collaborated with IHP Saipan to develop Sandy Beach Homes. The 60-unit beach front housing community is the first affordable housing project in Saipan for low-income families. Triple J Enterprises also began the groundwork for the 80-unit Blue Water Homes, the second affordable residential property development in Saipan in 2014. Triple J’s real estate arm is exploring other property development opportunities that will benefit the communities where the group is deeply rooted and committed to.
