Ziebart Franchisee Recognized

August 08, 2022

Ziebart franchisee and military veteran Nick Lambie was named among the list of 12 Franchise Rock Stars of 2022 by research firm Franchise Business Review for his achievements as a Ziebart franchise owner in Morgantown, West Virginia, Ziebart announced.

For the Franchise Rock Star Awards, Franchise Business Review reviewed over 273 nominations from franchisors in eight categories, including top performers, multi-unit owners, veteran-owned and family-owned, and then narrowed the search by selecting 60 franchisees that defined what it really means to be a Rock Star, the firm said, including leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community. Lambie earned one of the 12 spots on the list.

Lambie, who opened his Ziebart franchise in 2019 and recently signed an agreement for his second franchise location in Bridgeport, West Virginia, spent time in the military as an Air Force Weapons Director before deciding to go into franchising, Ziebart said. He credits his training as a main component of his leadership style, the company said.

“Nick exemplifies all of Ziebart’s core values of Honesty, Passion, Innovation, Teamwork and Legacy,” said Ziebart International Corporation President & Chief Executive Officer, Thomas A. Wolfe. “The leadership skills and attention to detail he learned in the military has definitely transferred over into how he runs his Ziebart business. Nick genuinely cares about his team members and is passionate about providing a seamless and enjoyable experience to all of his customers. Franchise Business Review made an excellent choice in naming him a 2022 Rock Star.”

“Each year it gets harder and harder to narrow down the list, but the franchisees recognized this year, including Nick Lambie, truly stand out as exceptional examples of achieving success within the franchise model,” Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “We are thrilled to recognize these individuals as Franchise Rock Stars.”
