OCALA, Fla. — For the City Electric Supply Ocala branch, the day of their 25th anniversary was no ordinary workday. With food, raffles, product demos and plenty of long-time customers, CES Ocala went all out to show their appreciation for the continued support they’ve received in their community for the last quarter of a century.
Although there were patches of rain, it did not stop anyone from celebrating and enjoying themselves. Whether it was pouring outside or not, there was a constant line at Uncle Eddie’s BBQ food truck, which was a big hit!
“We anticipated to feed 75 people, but even after 4 hours, everyone just kept lining up. It was that good! We always had between 20 and 30 people at one time, and there were more than 100 people that attended the event,” said Branch Manager Rob Ashley.
Ashley has been with the company for five years and has loved every second of being a part of the team.
“The best part of working for the company is the great group of guys I work with and building relationships with customers every day,” he said. “That’s probably one of the most rewarding parts of being branch manager.”
Other than the food and fellowship, the raffle giveaways were a big hit. The giveaways included a Bass Pro gift card, Gander Mountain gift card, Yeti Cooler, and Trager Grill.
“All of our winners are loyal customers, and we are very excited they were the selected winners,” Ashley said. “It just helped to show our appreciation that much more. They’re the people who come to us first for anything they need, and the giveaway prizes were a nice way to show how much we cared.”
In addition to the delicious food and raffle giveaways, the branch hosted several vendors to hold product demonstrations and show off new features to their customers. Representatives from Klein Tools, Milwaukee, and United Electrical Sales were in attendance to add onto an eventful day. The event was a huge success!
“Everyone had such an amazing time. Our employees and customers thought it was awesome and we cannot thank everyone enough for putting this successful celebration together!”anniversary, City Electric Supply
