TEAM Honda Earns Prestigious President’s Award from Honda, Prepares to Open Second Location in Acadiana Region in Summer of 2019

Baton Rouge, LA (May 8, 2019) – TEAM Honda of Baton Rouge has earned the prestigious President’s Award from American Honda Motor Co., Inc. for excellence in its sales and service performance, in the sales experience it delivers to customers and in its business operations.

“We are once again pleased to honor TEAM Honda with our President’s Award which recognizes Honda dealers who achieve excellence in all aspects of their sales and service operations,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the Automobile Division for American Honda. “Nothing is more important to Honda than taking care of our customers and TEAM Honda helps set the standard for customer care.”

This is the 16th year TEAM Honda has received the Honda President’s Award, more than any other Honda dealer in the Gulf South region.

“I am extremely proud of our entire TEAM Honda family for once again receiving this honor,” said TEAM Honda General Manager Preston Q-Petersen. “This national recognition has incredible value and meaning to our entire dealership. It’s a direct reflection of our customers and the service they receive at TEAM Honda, and reflects our #1 goal every day of providing the best in customer service.”

Earlier this year, TEAM Honda was also recognized by J.D. Power as a Dealer of Excellence, an honor awarded to a select number of vehicle dealerships throughout the United States that provide exceptional customer service. The Dealer of Excellence Program assists auto buyers who are looking for an exceptional dealership where they can confidently buy a vehicle.

“This certification sets us apart, especially coming from such an authority as J.D. Power,” said Petersen. “In one way or another, everyone in this dealership contributes to making our customers happy, and every member of our team shares in this achievement.”

The excitement around TEAM Honda is all building towards the summer of 2019, when TEAM Honda will welcome the grand opening of its sister store, TEAM Honda of Acadiana, located on I-49 at the Harry Guilbeau Road exit.

“We couldn’t be happier for the opportunity for TEAM Honda to expand over into the Acadiana region,” added Petersen. “We’ve been trying to put this opportunity together for several years, and to now see the construction process well underway and getting set to open this summer is going to be an exciting time for the TEAM organization, a great thing for the Acadiana region, and we think it will be a great thing for all of the Honda owners that are in the greater Acadiana region.”

“As I have stated before, we’ve known about the growth potential of the entire area. We wanted to build a Honda location that is convenient for customers not only in Lafayette but in the entire Acadiana area, and we think we’re doing that. This location is easily accessible by a short drive from a 6-parish region throughout Central and Southwest Louisiana.”

“We are really looking forward to opening the doors to TEAM Honda of Acadiana later this year, providing our current customers from the entire area, as well as new Honda customers, with the great service, great prices and the great Honda product offered at TEAM Honda.”
