Sheila Samuel and her brother Jeff Samuel have been named the 2017 CARSTAR Franchisee of the Year. Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes is proud to congratulate the owners of CARSTAR Ideal and CARSTAR Arvada, both located near Denver.
“We are honored to receive this award because we’ve worked extremely hard to become better operators,” says Sheila Samuel. “We’ve taken advantage of the systems and processes that CARSTAR offers to help us better serve customers and build our culture.”
Samuel says CARSTAR’s EDGE™ performance program has been particularly beneficial for efficient shop operation.
“EDGE is one of the best programs there is to help people learn how to run a body shop from a numbers perspective. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of running a shop. EDGE teaches the operator how to take a step back and drill into details.”
As a six-year Sherwin-Williams customer, Samuel says the brand’s upcoming EcoLean™ deployment will be the next step in a relationship that has grown considerably over the years.
“Sherwin-Williams has done a great job reaching out and helping us succeed,” says Samuel. “The fact that they have taken the time and energy to come into our shop with EcoLean is really appreciated.”
The Franchisee of the Year Award is the latest of many accolades Sheila and Jeff Samuel have earned. According to press announcement by CARSTAR:
“They are a leader in the market on systems and processes and an integral part of the Denver business group. They have one of the most beautiful facilities in our system, they have embraced a scheduling program, engaged in the advanced EDGE process and are getting ready for EcoLean. They have created a great shop culture with long-term employees, and are always a leader in the market on charitable donations.”
