Yellow Cab is Hotel Association Supplier of the Year

Yellow Cab is Hotel Association Supplier of the Year

Yellow-Cab-Sacramento-SHA-Supplier-of-Year-300x198At the Sacramento Hotel Association’s annual Hospitality Gala last month, I had the great honor of accepting on behalf of Yellow Cab Company of Sacramento the association’s 2013 Supplier of the Year Award. The event was very well done, featuring a delicious Farm-to-Fork dinner at The Citizen Hotel, Hospitality Employee of the Year Awards from each member hotel, and the awarding of $1,000 tuition scholarships to three deserving local students. For a list of the Hospitality Employees of the Year and scholarship winners, and a slide show of photos from the gala, visit http://www.sacramentohotelassociation.com.

I have participated with the association for many years and have appreciated its work as a cheerleader for our Sacramento region and its efforts to make Sacramento a visitor-friendly, welcoming community. Those efforts are good for the hospitality industry, of course, as they are for the taxicab industry.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve have been especially appreciative of the Hotel Association’s hard work, along with the Downtown Partnership, the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Metro Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Sacramento, in drafting the city’s proposed new taxicab ordinance. All of these folks understand that a taxi ride from airport to hotel or from hotel to meeting location may be that critically important first impression a visitor receives of our community. If we want Sacramento to be a destination for visitors, a popular location for conventions and meetings, a magnet for new businesses, we must put our best foot forward. We at Yellow Cab Sacramento are proud of the professionalism, courtesy and strong safety record of our drivers and staff. A city ordinance upholding those industry best practices gives everyone in our business a benchmark to ensure we’re providing the best service possible to our customers and to our city. That’s why, in accepting the Supplier of the Year Award for Yellow Cab, I expressed my thanks to the Sacramento Hotel Association for its leadership and community service.
