The annual Toyota Best Retailer in Town Awards – known as the BRITs – were presented by comedian Dara O’Briain and Toyota GB General Manager Mark Roden at The Renaissance Hotel in St Pancras, London.
In addition to the Best Group of the Year award, Snows Toyota Southampton also won second place in the Centre of the Year category for the second year running, and second place in After Sales Business of the Year.
The BRITs recognise the top performers amongst Toyota’s 180 retailers in the UK and are based on cumulative scores across the business, from new and used vehicle sales, to marketing and customer feedback.
Snows Chief Operating Officer Alex Domone, said: “Best Group is the most coveted prize in the Toyota retailer world and this win, along with our other two awards, recognises the great strength, commitment to performance and huge amount of effort from everybody within Snows Toyota. We are all delighted with this award and it’s a magnificent win for everyone concerned. Following some much-justified celebration, we will be returning to the job in hand – winning again next year.”
Family-owned Snows operates 50 dealerships from 29 locations across southern England. The company is the AM100 2019’s 45th-placed franchise retail group by turnover – with revenues of £420m achieved in 2019.
Stephen Snow, Chairman and Chief Executive of Snows, added: “This reward is richly deserved and myself, along with everyone across the business, is immensely proud of the achievement.”
The BRITs took place on the 26th February.
