Following another successful Dealership of the Year program, Farm Equipment is now accepting nominations for the 11th Annual Dealership of the Year.  

The program recognizes dealers in three categories:

  1. Large, Multi-Store Operation (over $75 million in annual sales revenues),
  2. Small-Store Operation (under $75 million in annual sales revenues),
  3. Dealers who derive the largest percentage of annual sales revenues from rural lifestyle customers.

All farm equipment dealerships in the U.S. and Canada are eligible, and encouraged, to participate. The top dealers are selected by an independent panel of judges and will receive a plaque of achievement, be publicly recognized through a local media campaign, and be featured in a cover story in Farm Equipment’s July/August 2015 issue.

Back in 2005, Farm Equipment’s Dealership of the Year program was established to “elevate farm equipment dealerships that are leading the industry in best practices, operations management and customer care.” Since then, 21 dealerships have been awarded the honor of Dealership of the Year, alongside of 40 others who have been recognized as Best-in-Class dealerships.

Manufacturers, suppliers, farmers and dealerships are invited to submit nominations and can do so by filling out the form here. All nominations are due by March 13, 2015.
