Elburnâ€”Cub Cadet announced that RF Houtz and Son in Elburn was its Retailer of the Year for 2009.
For the past 75 years, RF Houtz and Son have stayed true to their promise of delivering a premium product with personalized service to each and every customer. Their dedication to customer service and the Cub Cadet brand have kept the dealership successful for the past 75 years.
â€œTo honor their 75 years of dedicated service to Cub Cadet, we are happy to present Rob, Laura and Erika of RF Houtz and Son with the 2009 Retailer of the Year Award,â€ said Tom Rossman, Cub Cadet director of sales. â€œIn this day and age, itâ€™s tough to keep a business up-and-running for 10 years, let alone 75, but thatâ€™s exactly what the folks of RF Houtz and Son have done. They continue to show immense dedication, not only to their customers, but also the Cub Cadet brand by finding innovative and progressive ways to help their customers. Congratulations on 75 great years of dedicated service from everyone at Cub Cadet.â€
RF Houtz and Son first started business in 1934, under the realization that a premium product and friendly, reliable service would always bring in customers. The dealership first took on the Cub Cadet brand in 1961, and has remained an exclusive Cub Cadet dealership ever since. Although the early store only offered Cub Cadet riding mowers, RF Houtz and Son has expanded to offer users the full line of innovative products. In its 75 years, the company has continued to grow and now operates in a new location with additional floor space, an expanded warehouse and an outdoor display area. RF Houtz and Son has continually proven that it can stand the test of time by offering innovative products alongside high quality service.
Cub Cadetâ€™s Retailer of the Year award is given out once a year to the top dealer in the country. Dealers are selected based on their sales numbers as well as their ability to exemplify Cub Cadetâ€™s brand attributes of innovative thinking, a progressive attitude, high performance and premium quality.
