O.P. Jenkins celebrates its big win
SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-The retail winners of the GuildMaster Amazing Race are Terry and Meg Troutman from O.P. Jenkins in Knoxville, Tenn.
The world tour contest, GuildMaster's third, offered winners a choice of either $10,000 or a trip around the world. For every $1,000 in GuildMaster product purchased by a retailer or sold by a sales representative, one entry was earned. More than 520 companies and 97 percent of GuildMaster's sales reps took part in the competition with more than 2,600 entries.
The winning sales rep, Christie Blevins from Ft. Worth, Texas, was announced last week. Blevins plans to travel to Italy with her husband and two sons.
"Sometimes, the competition was intense. We were pleased with the response," Crowder said. "We were encouraged by the excitement that the race generated over the past several months among both our retailers and sales reps . . . Now, we're working to come up with our next fun, innovative idea. GuildMaster is known for setting the bar high and doing things a little differently. Brainstorming about the next great GuildMaster on Tour adventure has already begun."
