Car Service City’s annual conference and glam awards ceremony took place on 16 November at one of Jozi’s hottest new addresses, The Venue, in Green Park. The Venue is perfectly perched at the highest point in Sandton, with magical 360-degree views of the Johannesburg skyline and beyond.
The Car Service City franchisees and head-office staff along with RMI Highveld Regional Manager Jeffrey Molefe enjoyed the event and eagerly awaited the announcements of the award winners.
Car Service City, having positioned itself as one of the key players in the vehicle-servicing industry in South Africa and with 44 branches nationwide and rapidly growing, followed a stringent selection process for all the nominees. Parameters included head-office compliance, customer-relationship management, increase in value and volume figures, and good representation of the brand.
“Over the past year we’ve seen so many of our branches perform exceptionally well, and narrowing them down to the top three branches was no easy task,” said Grant Brady, Car Service City CEO. “The quality and standard this year were outstanding.”
Emcee Paul Rotherham announced the first award, New Franchisee of the Year 2013, which went to Jonathan Barnard from the Constantia Kloof branch. The Best Customer Service Award was won by the Eloff Street branch and accepted by Danny Khumalo. The second-runner-up franchise of the year was the Midrand branch, owned by Stelios Kassianides, and first runner-up was the Wadeville branch, owned by Wynand Wolmarans.
The winners of the 2013 Franchise of the Year Award were Ricky and Belinda Gulle of the East London Vincent branch.
