Pirtek USA’s annual two-day conference recognizes top performers, features business sessions, exhibit hall, and visit from Pirtek Team Murray and IndyCar 

March 18, 2016 // Franchising.com // Rockledge, FL, USA – Pirtek Rockville in Rockville, Md., has earned top honors as the Pirtek USA’s National Franchise of the Year for 2015. The company presented the award during its annual conference to business owner David Entwistle for his franchise’s outstanding performance, operational excellence, commitment and enthusiasm for the brand.

“To be chosen for this award out of all the great Pirtek franchises around the country says a lot,” Entwistle said. “Our team has worked so hard to make our location function at peak efficiency and quality. This is a nice recognition of all that effort, and we appreciate it.”

Pirtek is the leader in fluid transfer solutions. The company’s annual conference brings together the nearly 60 owners from across the United States to network, enhance their business development opportunities, and discuss and share strategies. Family members also attend, as the event features fun and lively entertainment options. This year’s conference was at the Renaissance Orlando at Sea World in Orlando, Fla.  

Several other franchisees were honored during the event, including Ken Adair who received Pirtek USA’s National Top Sales Award for 2015 on behalf of Pirtek O’Hare in Elk Grove Village, Ill. – one of three company franchises he owns. His Pirtek McKinley Park in Chicago won the Midwest Regional Franchise of the Year. 

Other owners who earned recognition for high performance in their geographic regions included the Southeast top performer, Jennifer Prendergast at Pirtek Space Coast in Rockledge, Fla. Spousal team Jim and Laure Phillips of Pirtek Jersey Village in Houston earned the Southwest award, and Paul Martin of Pirtek Long Beach in Signal Hill, Calif., was named the West Coast top performer. 

Also in attendance during the annual conference was IndyCar driver Matt Brabham, a member of Pirtek Team Murray, along with the IndyCar he’ll drive for the 100th race of the Indianapolis 500 in May. Conference attendees had an opportunity to see the high performance racing machine up close.  

“It’s an exciting time for all of us at Pirtek as we continue this wave of expansion across the United States,” said Glenn Duncan, Executive Director of Pirtek International. “All the new Service & Supply Centers, the enhanced product lines and the release of new Pirtek-branded products - we’re experiencing significant growth. Best of all, we have a wealth of highly motivated and talented business owners successfully leading their franchises.”
