RVBusiness Magazine recently released the list of its 2019 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America Awards recipients, including local dealer Sicard RV located at 7526 Regional Road 20 in Smithville, Ontario, who was also selected as one of its five special Blue Ribbon honorees.
"We are truly honored to be named an RVB Top 50 Dealership and also to have earned a Blue Ribbon award. We know the value of a well-informed and satisfied customer, that is why we have developed many programs to increase their knowledge and understanding of the RV industry. Over the last few years we have grown to over 100 employees and recognize the importance of a strong team. We focus on developing and growing our employees to ensure they can provide our customers with the best service in the industry. We are successful because we are continuously looking for ways to improve our business and grow with the industry; keeping customers satisfied is our priority." - Blair Sicard, Owner.
Dealers across the United States and Canada are first nominated by RV manufacturers who believe they're outstanding in their field before even being invited to fill out the comprehensive application covering practices pertaining to consumers, staff, marketing, charitable endeavors and overall business procedures. An independent panel of industry experts then reviews the applications during an intensive two-day, closed-door session at the RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum in Elkhart, Ind., known as the "RV capital of the world."
RVB Top 50 Administrators BJ Thompson said the selection process was exceptionally intense this year. "Our panel of judges was about as intently engaged as we've ever seen in completing their evaluations and final selections. There were some dynamic debates among the judges regarding the dealer finalists, and rightfully so," Thompson reported. "We saw evidence of dealers placing additional emphasis on service technician training and pressing for even higher levels of customer satisfaction. The judges clearly had difficulty getting the list down to just 50, so those who made the grade even further to receive Blue Ribbon designation this year should be particularly proud."
"Sicard RV, has been family owned and operated for over 50 years; a business of which started with only 2 people, has grown to over 100 employees. We strive to maintain the same sense of family since day one. Sicard RV carries one of Canada's largest RV inventories with over 700 units onsite every day for customers to explore. The breadth of our inventory allows our demographic offerings through an entire lifecycle of the RV lifestyle, from a young family to retirement. Allowing us to build that lifelong relationship with our customers. We are a one-stop shop for everything RV; from service, to sales, to parts."
The RVB Top 50 Awards honorees will be publicly recognized on stage Nov. 13 at an all-industry reception held during the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association International Convention/Expo at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, thanks to the support from program sponsors Airxcel, Brown & Brown, Cummins Power Generation, Dometic Corp., Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp., Lippert Components Inc., Northpoint Commercial Finance, NTP-STAG, Protective Asset Protection and Wells Fargo CDF.
"We are grateful of the support we received from members of the industry and our customers. We would like to thank RVBusiness for recognizing us at a Top 50 Dealer and awarding us with the Blue RIbbon award, it is a true honor to sit among the Top 5 elite dealers in North America," Blair Sicard, Owner.
"Just when you thought you'd seen it all, that the dealer applicants had pretty much played out their hands with regard to innovative, thought-provoking approaches to RV retailing, this year's applicants took things to a new level in terms of creative business practices, new-age marketing, charitable outreach, tech training and bar-raising approaches to consumer care," said RVBusiness Publisher Sherman Goldenberg. "We have an outstanding group for 2019."
