FAIRFAX, Va.--New York City businessman and ExxonMobil On the Run dealer Harry Singh was recently honored for outstanding performance by the International Franchise Association.
Singh, an On the Run franchisee, was nominated for the award by ExxonMobil due to his outstanding performance in all aspects of the convenience store and fuels business, leadership roles on national advisory boards, active participation in promoting the growth of the On the Run brand and support of community activities like the ExxonMobil Education Alliance.
"I've always had the burning desire to have my own business," Singh said. "Ever since my first station opened its doors, I always knew that the customer and the community were the most important factors in creating a successful business."
Singh operates five On the Run convenience stores in the New York City area--two in Brooklyn and one each in Garden City, East Meadow and Middle Village. He also operates 13 Mobil-branded service stations--all in the New York City area.
"When you walk into one of his stores, you'll quickly notice that it is staffed with smiling people who want to please the customers," said Gina Malandra, network development coordinator for ExxonMobil fuels marketing. "Harry has so much passion for customer service; he can't help but pass that along to his employees."
"Harry's an innovator who thinks outside of the box," said Brett Atherton, On the Run merchandise specialist for ExxonMobil fuels marketing. "His locations always have the latest offerings. There's always promotional activity at Harry's locations. The employees are always talking about the promotions and making sure that the customer is aware of everything going on in the store."
“I'm very grateful for my team of employees and for their hard work," Singh said. "Now the challenge is to remain the best franchisee in the future."
