Repair shop management software provider Fullbay is currently celebrating Repair Shop Owner Appreciation Week, an inaugural event aimed at honoring the men and women who own and operate heavy-duty repair shops, running October 5-9, 2020.
“We celebrate truck drivers and technicians, but we felt that owners deserved their time in the spotlight as well,” said Jacob Findlay, CEO and co-founder of Fullbay. “Repair Shop Owner Appreciation Week is a small way of giving back to the amazing people creating jobs and keeping vital equipment up and running.”
Fullbay is recognizing a different shop owner each day during the week. The winner’s entire shop will receive a catered lunch, as well as a special present for the owner. Members of the repair community are encouraged to participate by nominating an exceptional shop owner before October 9, 2020, at 8 a.m. PT.
The new annual event is part of Fullbay Cares, a program that gives back to the heavy-duty repair community. Since May 2020, Fullbay Cares has donated more than $15,000 to charities supporting the heavy-duty industry and released a free repair shop coloring book for families.
