The J&P Cycles Service Difference: We Call It The “IT” Factor

People often ask me how J&P Cycles consistently exceeds customer expectations. It’s a good question, but a bit difficult to answer. It goes without saying that we’ve got the dedication, tools and the resources to provide world-class customer service, but so do others. We have a mission statement with our customers as our No.1 priority, but again, so do the other guys.

The answer came to me during our recent Open House. Three simple words: “We get it.” And the “it” that I’m talking about is the deep-seated understanding of our customers by everyone at J&P — from the top of the organization on down.

When J&P founder John Parham … Continue Reading

Bike Week 2010 — J&P Dispatch No. I

Wow, what a crazy first few days! My role this year is making sure people who visit J&P’s Ormond Beach Superstore — officially called the Destination Daytona Superstore — find what they need and can quickly make their way through checkout. I haven’t reached Wal-Mart greeter status yet but already I’ve met a lot of incredible people from all walks of life.

If there’s one thing everyone visiting our Bike Week location has in common, it’s a tremendous passion for motorcycles. As a result, I’ve been able to steal time away from my assigned duties (shh, don’t tell Zach) long enough to talk with several shoppers. Here’s what … Continue Reading
