SIDNEY, OH – Kent, Linda and Holly Zimmerman, owners of Checkered Flag Drive Thru say their business is successful because their employees know all there is to know about lottery games. The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize Checkered Flag Drive Thru as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of February 13, 2017.
Checkered Flag Drive Thru is located at 1150 Wapakonata Avenue in Sidney. The staff takes the time to explain how games work and they double check the customers’ tickets, making sure they understand how a game works. To further promote lottery, the Drive Thru posts stickers at their point of sales; cars pulling up to the drive thru know that they can buy tickets at this location. Using their Facebook page, they post high jackpot amounts and include pictures of big wins.
Holly Zimmerman describes their place as fun, exciting and gratifying because it feels good when a customer wins. She said it makes their day too. Selling for 8 years, their success is because of their knowledgeable staff and because they will ask for the sale. Holly adds that customers come to Checkered Flag because they know employees will get their ticket and bets correct. Carrying 22 instant games, Checkered Flag Drive Thru has a weekly sales average of $5,376 for instant and online games.
