On Sunday, about 160 Jiffy Lube of Indiana managers and their guests gathered for our annual Manager Awards Banquet. Thanks to our partnership with the Pacers, the banquet was held at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse for the second year in a row and included an incredible spread that would impress just about anyone!
In addition to recognizing our outstanding managerial staff, the banquet is also a cherished tradition to strengthen the bonds between employees that are usually focused primarily on their individual stores.
“As we’ve grown the business over the years, it’s become more difficult to get every leader in the company together at the same time. I love watching our key people meet each other or renew old friendships. It adds so much family spirit to be able to celebrate another successful year together,” said Steve Sanner, Owner.
Lonnie Hinkle, COO and Partner, seconded the sentiment, “The banquet is a time to celebrate the great people we have in the Jiffy Lube family and recognize many of them for their hard work and dedication. It’s a time to enjoy in fellowship as well.”
It was an honor to see so many hard working leaders get recognized for the contributions they make every day to serving our guests. “This year, the two most powerful moments were the Larry “Big Block” Baker Award going to Rodney Brown, one of Larry’s best friends, and having Rick Bartlett’s paralyzed 16 year old daughter present her father with the Manager of the Year Award,” said Sanner.
Congratulations to all of the managers for another successful year of providing the best vehicle preventative maintenance services available. The hard work and dedication it takes to make us the best at what we do is what brings us all together.
