Dealernews, the premier business information resource for North American powersports retailers, announces the winners of the 19th Annual Top 100 Awards, the industry’s largest, longest running and most prestigious retail competition.
The Dealernews Top 100 Awards is a juried competition that recognizes dealerships for their achievements in retail design and merchandising, marketing, e-commerce, customer service, community involvement and general business management.
More than 35 states from coast to coast, plus two Canadian provinces, are represented in this year’s Top 100. States with the highest number of winning dealerships are Texas (8), Missouri (7) and Virginia (6). A full list of the 2010 Top 100 Dealers follows.
The Top 100 Dealers will be honored Feb. 12 during an invitation-only awards reception in Indianapolis, where the 2010 Dealer of the Year and Merit Award winners will be revealed. The Top 100 Dealers will be showcased in a three-day gallery exhibit during the 42nd Annual Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo, held Feb. 12-15 at the Indiana Convention Center and the Marriott and Westin Hotels in downtown Indianapolis.
This year’s winners also will be commemorated in the 2010 Top 100 Yearbook, to be published in March by Dealernews. In addition, an online gallery will be available starting in March at www.dealernews.com.
