Westerville, OH – The employees at Blendon Drive Thru know a positive attitude goes a long way. At 5377 Westerville Road, Miqdad (Mike) Daas owns the business and his brother Eyad (Eddie) manages it. The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize Blendon Drive Thru as this week’s Retailer-of-the-Week.
Maintaining a positive attitude and a big smile ensures repeat business and a strong return customer base, says Eddie. But Blendon Drive Thru also promotes the Lottery through winner awareness, current point-of- sales postings and Ohio lottery logos are everywhere. The focal point of the drive thru is the big Lottery window. The Drive Thru has a dual jackpot signs, street swings signs and banner Lottery wraps in the window.
The drive thru is located on Westerville Road and is referred to as $30 row because of the high $30 instant ticket sales in the area says Lottery sales representative Scott Pollick. Eddie says that they are blessed to have such a loyal customer base and it has gotten even bigger since they sold a $200 million Powerball ticket on November 13, 2015. He adds that they were able to see the impact of winning personally. Blendon Drive thru carries 48 instant tickets and has a weekly sales average of $13, 887 for instant and online games.
“Keep a good selection of tickets, pay all winning tickets and you can always wear a big smile. It keeps them coming back,” says Eddie.
Each week, the Ohio Lottery recognizes one outstanding retail partner who offers courteous service and sales enthusiasm. Retailer-of-the-Week is chosen based on recommendations from the store’s sales representative and regional sales office. Blendon Drive Thru Mart will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on February 20, 2016.
