“It’s always fun to get started on another Power 50 year,” editor in chief Dave McMahon said. “The Power 50 program has grown in each of its first three years thanks to industry support, and we expect that trend to continue in 2016. We’ve seen firsthand in our travels some of the amazing retail experiences that dealerships are providing, and dealers would be smart to promote their stores and their staff by applying to become a Power 50 dealer. ”

What does it take?

Managing a powersports dealership to high levels of customer service, sales and, yes, profits, is no easy task, especially in today’s market. Simultaneously creating an atmosphere that exceeds high consumer expectations can be even more difficult. For the most professional of dealerships, however, these tasks have not only become second nature, they are firmly integrated in the business’ day-to-day operations.

If your company:

  • Displays a consistent and clear understanding that the profitability of the organization is directly related to the extent that it focuses on customer satisfaction;
  • Provides customers with an experience worth returning for and recommending to others;
  • And prepares for future success with sound planning, marketing and training initiatives;

Then you need to apply to be recognized as one of the top dealers in North America.

Some important things for you to know as the program embarks on its fourth year:

We will select 50 dealerships for the list, and will rank the top group of 5 dealerships, recognizing them for their elite status in the industry. The top ranked dealer will be recognized as the “No. 1 Powersports Dealer in North America.”
