Winston-Salem Used Car Business Named To Top 100 List


RALEIGH, N.C. – Business Leader Media is proud to recognize Frank Myers Auto Maxx of Winston-Salem, North Carolina as one of the Top 100 small businesses in the entire state for the second year in a row. The hugely successful and wildly popular pre-owned auto dealerships, owned by Certified Master Dealer Tracy Myers, realized an astonishing 5 year growth of a whopping 141%. What makes these numbers so stunning is that the automotive industry as a whole is in a downward spiral, with no immediate recovery in site.

"The honor of being named one of the top 100 small businesses in North Carolina is simply a testament to my father's belief that if you surround yourself with good people, they'll push you to the top," said Tracy Myers. "If anyone deserves the credit for this recognition, it is my incredible staff because they continue to push me to the top. Of course, I am also grateful to the community for their unwavering support."

The 2009 winners were ranked based on high customer satisfaction scores, business achievement, community involvement and company growth. They were the only auto dealership chosen from thousands of entries and 367 finalists. The rankings and profiles of the companies will appear in an upcoming issue of Triad Business Leader magazine. In 2008, Frank Myers Auto Maxx placed #22.
