Mazda Canada Announces Top Performing Dealerships With The 2017 Dealer of Distinction Awards

RICHMOND HILL, ON, April 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Owning and managing a successful automotive dealership is not an easy task. Increasingly knowledgeable customers who expect nothing but the finest experience, be it throughout their purchase of a vehicle or performing maintenance on their current vehicle, are constantly challenging dealerships to go above and beyond their expectations. To that end, ensuring favourable long term relationships with their staff, customers and suppliers, is a necessity in today's highly competitive business environment.

Since 1993, Mazda Canada's annual Dealer of Distinction awards program has been in place to measure the effectiveness of all areas of operation at every Mazda Dealership. The evaluation process used in the determination of this prestigious award serves to identify and enhance optimal Dealer operating efficiency according to Mazda Canada's strict guidelines. Quantifiable data from all aspects of a Dealer's operations such as sales, service, administration and facilities are thoroughly evaluated. The criteria required for a dealership hoping to earn the award is a continually moving target in order to challenge dealerships even after receiving the Dealer of Distinction designation.

The Dealer of Distinction program recognizes those dealers who have excelled in all facets of their dealership's operations and for 2017 Mazda Canada is pleased to present the award to the following Dealers:
