Ferndale, WA (June 30, 2010) — Superfeet Worldwide Inc., leading manufacturer and global distributor of supportive premium insoles, was awarded the 2010 Fleet Feet Sports Supplier of the Year award.
Fleet Feet, Inc., one of the nation’s leading franchisor of running specialty stores, honored the outstanding contributions and accomplishments of its franchisees, employees and vendors during its annual National Franchise Conference June 20 – 24, 2010 in San Diego, CA.
The Supplier of the Year award has traditionally distinguished a footwear manufacturer for outstanding products, service and support to Fleet Feet stores nationwide; however, this year the competition was opened to all vendor categories. In order to determine the winners in this award category, Fleet Feet franchisees cast their votes in a democratic process that included input from store locations nationwide.
“It’s a great honor to receive such a prestigious award among premier companies within the running industry. I wish the entire Superfeet team could have been there to receive the trophy,” says Superfeet President Bill McLean. ”Thanks to Fleet Feet Chairman and CEO Tom Raynor, President Jeff Phillips, VP Business Development Luke Rowe, and all the franchisees around the country for their support of our vision and our mission. Our service to Fleet Feet wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of our 60+ company and independent reps throughout the US, and our dedicated team at our headquarters in Ferndale, WA. To quote Dan Mann’s leadership talk at the Fleet Feet conference, our team exudes exceptional passion, leadership and teamwork.'”
