Mighty Honors Announces Its Franchise Of The Year

The award was presented at Mighty’s National Sales Meeting and Trade Show in Houston.

Mighty Distributing System of America has announced Mighty of Central Indiana as its Franchise of the Year.

The award was presented at Mighty’s National Sales Meeting and Trade Show in Houston. The Central Indiana operation is one of four Mighty franchises owned by the JTM Group. Steve Sanner and Jay Greenfield are principals and Jeff Bare is chief operating officer of the JTM Group.

Commenting on the award, Sanner said, “JTM has many different entities within each business group based on giving ownership opportunities to key people as we add new franchises. So, while we started in the Jiffy Lube business in 1985, we are now in Jiffy (48 shops), Tuffy (six shops) and Mighty (four franchises), hence the JTM name.”

Ken Voelker, president and CEO of Mighty, added, “It is gratifying to award Mighty’s Franchise of the Year recognition to a long-term, professional organization like the JTM Group. And their operation in Central Indiana knocked the ball out of the park this year! The award is extremely well-deserved.”

In accepting the Franchise of the Year Award, Sanner said, “We have raised the bar. We have maintained a professional work environment at every level. Our employees are our associates; our customers are our guests. That’s how we truly feel about each other, and that’s how we feel about the people we do business with. When you think like that, it compels you to conduct business accordingly.”
