"Every one of our franchisees play an integral role in the success of Fiesta Auto Insurance," said John Rost, Founder and President of Fiesta Auto Insurance, which began franchising in 2006 and now boasts more than 105 locations throughout the United States. "It was great having our franchise owners together, sharing best practices that help make Fiesta Auto Insurance the success it is today. With everyone together, this was a great opportunity for us to recognize the efforts of our franchisees this past year, while looking forward to continued growth of the brand."
Celebrating the success of its franchise system at the conference, Fiesta Auto Insurance presented its top franchisees in the system with Bronze, Silver, Platinum and Diamond Awards. Franchise owners Javier Garcia and Frank Magana were awarded with the highest honor, receiving the Diamond Award for reaching more than $2.5 million in sales in less than five years. In addition, the company raffled off three free franchises to three lucky franchisees. This was also the first year that awards were presented for the tax side of the business.
"The strong leadership of each franchise owner and their drive to provide customers with the best in both insurance and tax preparation is a true testament to the strength and success of our franchise system," added Rost.
