If employees have an event and they ask us to sponsor it, we do it on their behalf.
Another element that sets us apart as a company is doing the right thing, whether that is in regard to customer service or taking care of our employees. We’re not going to compromise our core values for anything.
It’s how we do business, treat our employees and customers, support the community and provide resources such as technology and tools. We attribute those things to our success..
Q: As avid community supporters, what is your motivation?
A: That’s at the heart of everything we do at Herb’s Paint & Body. The other thing my grandfather was very passionate about is that if a community was going to do business with him and pay him for his services, he felt he needed to provide back to that community for doing so. As a result, we’ve always been very passionate about that.
The majority of our marketing efforts and what we do is very much at a local store level, whether it’s a nonprofit, high school or another community organization. We support a wide range of local organizations such as the Child Advocacy Center of Collin County, the Dallas Zoo and the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas. We also sponsor high school booster clubs and sports teams and award community scholarships, for example, at the State Fair of Texas.
We look for all possibilities to give back to the communities we serve. It has always been part of the fabric of how we do business, and we plan to always continue to do so through financial and time commitments. We feel that the greatest impact we could have is to reinvest in the areas we serve and make the communities we serve and live in better. We have that ability to do that, so we do.
By working together as a team with hard-working, highly trained employees and an attitude of charity, we will accomplish our goal to have a long-term, successful family-owned business.
