VERC Enterprises wins Best of Plymouth Award for 7th consecutive year
The convenience store and Mobil/Gulf gasoline operator now in Plymouth Business Hall of Fame
The Plymouth Award Program annually identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category; these businesses are recognized for their proven ability to enhance the positive image of small business service to their customers and community.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to select the winners in each category. Award recipients were determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Plymouth Award Program and data provided by third parties.
VERC Enterprises is among a very small group of businesses to hold the distinction of winning the Best of Plymouth Award in consecutive years; to commemorate its inclusion in this elite group, an exclusive Hall of Fame Award has been bestowed.
“It is an honor to once again receive the Best of Plymouth Award in the Convenience Stores category,” said Leo Vercollone, president of VERC Enterprises. “And taking a place in the Hall of Fame makes everyone in our fine professional family proud; our commitment to the communities we serve is steadfast.”
