(3/10/09) Racing Limos, Inc. has announced the Franchisee of the Year winner for 2008-2009. Gary and Karen Davis owners of Racing Limos of Tri Cities, based in Richland, Washington have received the highest honor from this Franchisor.
They were competing with over 125 different locations across the nation. In January of 2008, the couple were granted a franchise and purchased a Dodge Charger. "We have only been in business for less than 12 months so it was exciting to learn that we were being recognized for our accomplishments and efforts so soon," said Gary Davis. Being involved in charities was one of the reasons the judge selected Racing Limos of Tri-Cities. Some of those organizations include the March of Dimes, the Lewis and Clark PTA, the local Humane Society, Forever Homes (which assists abused, abandoned and neglected children) and the Hsinchu Municipal Pei-Ying Junior High School (Taiwan).
Another factor in the selection process is "striving for the benefit of other franchisees." Mr. Davis is active in the on-line monthly chats of the franchisees, and was recently selected to the Racing Limos Franchisee Advisory Committee. Their abilities are being noticed beyond the Racing Limos community. Limousine Chauffeur Transportation Magazine featured an article in the November 2008 issue which was written by Mr. Davis.
For their efforts, the couple will receive the recognition of their peers, a pair of decals for their Racing Limo announcing the award, the traveling trophy which will be provided from the previous year's winner, and a prize package that includes tickets to the 2009 NASCAR Championship race in Homestead, Florida, ground transportation, welcome dinner and hotel accommodations.
"We have certainly had lots of help learning how to run a successful business. Being a part of the Tri Cities and Prosser Chamber of Commerce as well as the Tri Cites Visitor and Convention Bureau has helped integrate us into the business community" said Gary Davis.
"Gary and Karen hit the ground running and haven't stopped," said Racing Limos President Bryan Pease. "We can't wait to see the progress in 2009."
