Full Throttle 2020 Winner

Full Throttle Performance Products congratulates John Grzegorzewski, manager at the Speedy Lube of Maywood in Maywood, New Jersey, for winning the 2020 Full Throttle Tech U Training & Rewards contest. He was awarded the $10,000 first prize check in a ceremony held at his store on March 4.

Having completed its fifth year, the competition was developed and introduced by ITW Professional Automotive Products in 2016. It recognizes top service advisors and technicians involved in the quick lube business who complete the Tech U training program and become certified service advisors to help customers improve their automobile’s performance.

“We are very pleased with the response we continue to receive for our national Tech U Training & Rewards employee program,” noted Joe Farr, the director of sales – warehouse distribution/DIFM channels for ITW Professional Automotive Products. “The number of automobile professionals participating keeps increasing every year. I think people realize the true value this free program offers and how it translates to providing better service for their customers.”

Grzegorzewski said the benefits of the Tech U program have helped him manage his shop, located about 20 miles west of New York City.

“I became aware of it when I was shopping around for a new fuel system cleaning product with Service Champ. Then one day I received an email mentioning the Tech U training program and rewards, so on a rainy day, I completed the online courses and started the rewards. There was a lot of good content that I was able to share with all my technicians and customers,” said Grzegorzewski. He started in the business in 2002 and credits a longtime friend and a boss – both named Dan – for being in the position he is in today.

“Between the training program and my prior education and experience in the field, it made it easier to tell customers why they need the Full Throttle Fuel System cleaning service to help maintain their vehicle’s performance, good fuel economy, and keep their emissions system running clean. Our POS system ISI also connects to Carfax so we are able to check their service records from other locations that submit those records and compare it to our data. That’s another tool to help recommend the fuel system cleaning.”

The national Tech U Training and Rewards program is free and consists of six courses: Fuel System, Oil System, Transmission, Cooling System, Power Steering System, and Wiper Blades. The 2021 Tech-U Training & Rewards contest is now underway. When an employee sells a Full Throttle service, they can redeem points towards cash and compete for the grand prize of $10,000 or 40 secondary prizes.
