Prineville Lavender hosting this week's Prineville Perk


Robberson Ford is among an elite group of Ford and Lincoln dealerships to be recognized with the 2013 President’s Award by Ford Motor Company.

The prestigious award honors dealerships that have excelled in automotive retailing in 2013, by providing exceptional customer service and satisfaction.

“Earning this award is a reflection of our entire staff’s commitment to delivering the best customer experience possible,” said Robberson Ford owner Jeff Robberson. “I couldn’t be more proud to receive this recognition, especially since it comes from the people we value most – our customers. They’re the reason we were able to achieve this award.”

The President’s Award was established in 1998. Dealers become eligible through survey responses from customers related to their sales and service satisfaction.

Robberson Ford has won the President’s Award three times in the last five years, an achievement rarely done by other dealers in the country.
