With all of the changes that occurred in 2016, one thing that remains unchanged is the dedication and hard work of our manufacturer representatives. They’ve continued to support our business, some for more than two decades, by their outstanding achievements in sales, year after year. This year at our annual NRA reception in May, we took a moment to recognize our hard hard-working representatives who were key to making 2016 a success. Congrats to the below 2016 winners. We look forward to continued success for years to come.
The President's Award
AJ Sales Las Vegas, Nevada
Each year, Service Ideas awards one Sales Representative Group that stood out among the rest. Objectives considered include overall sales and loyalty to Service Ideas and our growth. This yearly recipient is a manufacturer rep who checks in with their Service Ideas Sales Director on a regular basis and always has the best interest of the factory in mind. In 2016, this rep group was AJ Sales in Las Vegas, Nevada. One Service Ideas' product, in particular, can attribute to AJ Sales' success in 2016: the Flame Free Thermo-Urn™. Reps Glen Turner and Patrick Simon sold over 200 urns to hotels and convention centers throughout Las Vegas. This resulted in a 56 percent growth in sales for them. Congratulations, AJ Sales, on your 2016 quota buster and overall achievement in foodservice sales with Service Ideas.
