1-800-Radiator & A/C is recognizing Edgar and Joann Rodriguez of Warehouses #421 and #587. The Rodriguez family led the top performing franchise locations for the month of August. During the month of August, their warehouses experienced a combined sales growth of 15%.
Keeping inventory in-stock is a crucial part of sales growth. The franchise locations saw a 9.4% increase in in-stock lookup percentages. Out-of-stock rates were kept under 10% in all major categories. This means the warehouses had mostly all of the parts in-stock when their customers requested them.
Edgar and Joann opened their first 1-800-Radiator & A/C franchise in Pharr, Texas in 2011. After experiencing incredible success, they opened a second franchise location this year. With the addition of the second warehouse and two new FSRs, Edgar and Joann’s monthly visits have increased from an average of 300 to more than 1,100 visits per month.
According to Edgar and Joann, running successful 1-800-Radiator & A/C franchises requires three things: following the model; having the right employees; and keeping inventory in stock.
“Not adequately investing will lead you to lose out on sales,” Edgar said.
In the coming year, the Rodriguez family will continue to provide their employees with the tools they need to best perform their job and expect to continue growing in the months ahead.
