Andrew and Susan Smith, owners of Aire Serv of South East Texas, received the Top Gun Award from the Aire Serv Corporation during The Dwyer Group International Conference Sept. 29th-Oct. 3rd in San Antonio.
This award goes to franchise owners who achieve sales and reach operation benchmarks. The Top Gun recipients represent the top 10 percent of Aire Serv franchise owners across North America.
“The idea of ‘Top Gun’ was established by the Navy in the 1960’s as a way to give training and credit to elite fighter pilots,” said Doyle James, president of Aire Serv. “Taking a page from the Navel Top Gun Program, each year we recognize our franchise leaders for their accomplishments and dedication to the trade. It takes dedication, hard work, expertise and commitment to reach the Top Gun goal and we are honored to have these winners on our team.”
The Top Gun designation was inspired by the 1980’s movie of the same moniker. Don Dwyer, the late founder of Aire Serv’s parent The Dwyer Group initiated the concept. He felt the top franchise owners went the extra mile and did what it took to be exemplary.
“It is an honor to receive this award,” Andrew Smith said. “It proves that working hard and providing outstanding customer service can go a long way.”
