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

Sanner: “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 (4 franchises), hence the JTM name.”

Ken Voelker, President and CEO of Mighty, commented, “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 Steve 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.”
