[Bradenton, Florida] – With a day full of smiles and friendly conversation, City Electric Supply Bradenton celebrated their 25th anniversary with many customers and vendors.

Throughout the sunny day, customers were able to learn about products, enter the giveaway for several prizes, and interact with the team outside of work.

“The turnout was great! It was our biggest turnout for an event, and it was amazing seeing customers show up,” stated Branch Manager Joe Garcia.

Garcia has been with CES for nearly 20 years and has enjoyed building relationships on a daily basis.

“My favorite part of waking up every day is knowing I get to go into work to see my customers and work with my team,” said Garcia. “Building new relationships every day and working alongside a group of guys who work hard and want to help the branch grow and succeed is one of the best parts.”

Not only did the branch get to know their customers better in a relaxed, casual environment, but they also celebrated with a handful of giveaways and delicious food.

“The giveaways were a huge hit and the Grand Prize Traeger Grill really drew people in,” said Garcia.

In addition to the fun, the branch hosted several vendors to hold product demonstrations and show off new features. Representatives from Klein Tools, Milwaukee, TAMCO, Generac, and several other vendors attended the eventful celebration.

“Customers enjoyed having so many different vendors there at one time and being able to chat with the representatives about their new products.”

Garcia couldn’t see the event running any smoother, praising the 25th anniversary of the Bradenton branch as one of the most important moments of his career.

“Although it was mainly intended as a customer appreciation event, the branch staff really appreciated the get together the evening before. I believe that set the tone for the next day’s event. We had a larger attendance of customers & vendors than we typically do at these events which was great,” exclaimed District Manager Rick Rockafellow.
