Road Shields a Small Business Using Big Business to Help a Non-Business
Submitted by: Road Shields
(OPENPRESS) March 1, 2012 -- In an economy that forces dozens of local and small businesses to board up their doors and sell the farm, literally in some areas of the country, it becomes harder to find someone looking out for others. Many business owners run their business in a brutal dog fight manner, only watching out for their net worth and profit margin, forgetting that there are plenty of others out there that have a net worth of zero and refrigerator that reflects that number. Road Shields business model completely fights this thinking with their mission statement involving the idea "Quality glass by quality people."
Words only go so far, proof is only shown with action. Road Shields, a small Orange County auto glass distributor is proving that they are quality people by giving 10% of their sales from a Groupon.com sale that they are holding on February 28, 2012 to March 1, 2012 to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a disease that attacks the central nervous system and can cause numbness, blindness, and paralysis. MS is a disease with an unknown cause and cure.
Groupon.com is a multimillion dollar business that Road Shields is able to use to help a non-business, like the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. It is far too common for people to forget that others that are less fortunate are still out there. The words "fragile" go far beyond the idea of that the shipment must be handled in a certain way; it's applied to their relationship with people.
Finding a business with such high morals does not come around very often any longer. The reason for the founder and owner of Road Shields, John Frank Robinson V to use such high moral practices is because he has been in the auto glass industry for his entire life and has learned business techniques that were passed down from generation to generation starting with his grandfather. He is now converting the hospitable business practices that his father and grandfather taught him to fit this modern time. Creating deals with businesses such as Amazon and other online vendors to provide the best deal on auto glass to customers that need it the most.
