Christmas was a time to celebrate family and friends and to remember the things that bring us together. At Rodeo we celebrated with our family and our employees and our friends. We celebrated twenty years in Business, too. This celebration started last January when 2018 marked our 20th anniversary. We gained many new customers during this year and we strengthened relationships with old customers. Now is a time to reflect on what we’ve learned over the past twenty years, what we learned over the last year, and what we hope to learn in the coming year.
At Rodeo we like to keep things simple. While it can be tempting to compete with others and it’s important to remain competitive in terms of pricing, there’s no point in trying to be something that we aren’t. We thought a lot this year about growth and about the future and we considered where we might go carefully. We considered the success of our operation in Medicine Hat and the continued, reliable success of our Calgary location. But, we are a family business at heart, and while that doesn’t mean small it does mean we want to maintain our focus. We are customer driven. We have made it to where we are by satisfying a reliable core of customers and we hope to continue to do that in the future.
So, looking forward to the New Year, to a successful 2019, we hope to expand carefully without losing focus on our customers. We’re not eager to become greedy and lose sight of the people that brought us here over the last twenty years. We’re eager to establish the relationships that will define the next twenty years.
Happy New Year to you all.
