Kukui CEO Aims To Visit 1,000 Shops

The plan was to hit the streets and gather feedback directly from shop owners, whether they were Kukui customers or not, and hear firsthand what made them successful and understand what else they needed to continue that success.

Kukui Corp., maker of the All-in-One Success Platform, has announced that CEO Todd Westerlund has embarked on the third leg of a year-long project to visit more than 1,000 auto repair shops to hear and see firsthand how shop owners across the country achieve success.

Kukui’s mission is to help auto repair shops be successful and grow. Last summer, Westerlund set out to visit 100 shops in 100 days. The plan was to hit the streets and gather feedback directly from shop owners, whether they were Kukui customers or not, and hear firsthand what made them successful and understand what else they needed to continue that success.

After those first few weeks, it became apparent that the scope of this project needed to grow to reach shops across the country. With the deployment of the Kukui Van, a Mercedes Sprinter wrapped in the Kukui logo, Westerlund set out to visit at least 1,000 shops in 2017.  

“I worked in the shop for over 15 years, and have used that experience to help me drive the vision of Kukui,” said Westerlund. “But, there is such a valuable wealth of expertise in the minds and hearts of our customers that I had to go out and hear it firsthand.”

Next week, Westerlund will embark on the third leg of the tour, taking the Kukui Van from North Carolina up the East coast visiting dozens of shops throughout Virginia, Maryland, DC and New York. Finally, the tour makes a final run back across the middle of the country, reaching Chicago on Sept. 24. Following the tour, the company will announce updates within its next generation All-in-One Success Platform. These most recent updates are based exclusively on feedback from this nationwide tour.

Updates on the tour can be found on Facebook.
