Olympic Hot Tub Wins Highest Award from Hot Spring Spas~for the 3rd Time
Olympic Hot Tub has won 2014 the Locksin Thompson Hot Spring Dealer of the Year Award from Hot Spring Spas, the top award among the manufacturer’s 700 dealers around the world. Olympic, which won the inaugural Locksin Thompson award in 1992 and again in 2005, is the only three-time recipient. Hot Spring is the industry leader-the #1 selling brand globally.
“This retailer is well respected in their region and across the industry, and they are always willing to share ideas and even coach other dealers to help them succeed,” said Ryan Sessler, Hot Springs’ vice president of sales who presented the award to Olympic president Blair Osborn and team members Don Riling, Patty Fitzgerald-Taylor, and Rob Anderson at Hot Spring’s dealer meeting in Newport Beach, Calif. The prize is named for pioneer hot tub dealer Locksin Thompson, who installed a redwood tub in his back yard in 1975.
Olympic Hot Tub has enjoyed double-digit year-over-year sales increases in almost every category, which Sessler said demonstrates “innovative products, world-class operating systems, progressive marketing initiatives, and superior customer care, all driven by an entrepreneurial spirit.”
“We believe our long term association with Hot Spring Spas is a big factor in our success,” Osborn said. “The quality of their products and customer support has meant repeat business, customer loyalty and staff that is proud to be associated with the No. 1 selling brand.”
“Their quality & support have no equal in the industry,” agreed co-owner Alice Cunningham. “This is a win for our staff and acknowledges how super they really are – we are truly grateful to each of them for all they do to support our customers day in and day out. The award also gives Olympic Hot Tub a huge competitive advantage. It gives prospective customers peace of mind to know they’re dealing with the best retailer in the industry. We are thrilled to be 3 time winners. A big thank you goes to Hot Spring for honoring us.”
