Last week, in the stunning setting of Harrogate’s Rudding Park, MKM held it’s annual awards celebration, rewarding branches for their hard work throughout 2018.
Along with existing awards for ‘Branch of the Year’ and ‘Most Improved Branch’ this year saw the introduction of a new award – ‘Best New Branch’ to celebrate the branches that have joined the network over the past couple of years.
And the winners are…
Branch of the Year
Congratulations to MKM Kings Lynn who picked up the coveted award of ‘MKM Branch of the Year’.
With over 19 branches having record years, it was a tough category, but Kings Lynn came out on top for their outstanding customer service, building strong customer relationships resulting in both new and returning customers and a 28% sales increase.
Most Improved Branch
In a category with no shortage of entries, it was MKM Southport that scooped the title, recording significant increases since last year. The branch also celebrated it’s 10th birthday this month, so it was a special occasion for Branch Directors Rob and Matt!
Best New Branch
A new award for 2018, it was a close competition between two branches but the winner was announced as MKM Sharston, South Manchester. Opening in December 2016 as the 46th MKM branch, Sharston has continued to shine thanks to its extensive onsite kitchen and bathroom showroom and its highly experienced team, resulting in the branch already recording profit above the group average.
Branch Directors from three branches; Durham, Norwich and Macclesfield were also rewarded with a luxury watch and Champagne for reaching key milestones this year.
Congratulations to all winners and we look forward to another successful year in 2019!
