According to How2Media, the producers of "World's Greatest!…", UniFirst was selected for the show based on its leadership position in the industry and the company's adept ability to fiscally perform despite downturns in the economy.
This is the second time the company has appeared on national television, having previously been featured on the hit CBS-TV reality series "Undercover Boss." In the episode, UniFirst President and CEO, Ron Croatti, went undercover to work side by side with his staff and discover possible ways to improve business operations and customer services at the company's hundreds of locations coast to coast.
The UniFirst episode of "World's Greatest!…" featured the company's Whippany, N.J., service facility, just outside the Newark area. This operation is one of UniFirst's 240 facilities located throughout the United States and Canada. "We're honored that our company was recognized by the "World's Greatest!…" program," said David Katz, senior vice president of sales and marketing, who was also featured on the show. "The television segment did a great job showcasing our customer service-oriented ‘family' culture, as well as our technologically advanced operations that help us provide the highest levels of customer satisfaction in our industry."
"UniFirst has achieved annual company growth every year since its founding in 1936, due in no small part to an understanding of the need for continuous improvement and continual innovation in servicing its customers," said Gordon Freeman, executive producer of the television show. "We got the story behind the story with this great and growing 80-year-old company, and show viewers why UniFirst was selected as the best in its category and, therefore, featured on the show."
