About This Book

Must-reading for every manager, entrepreneur, corporate executive, and anyone looking to increase customer satisfaction, boost employee engagement, and significantly enhance the bottom line.

In order to build a successful company today, you must create an unbreakable bond of loyalty between your customers and employees. Few have done this better than Enterprise Holdings, owner of the Enterprise, National, and Alamo rental car brands.

While Enterprise has long been known for offering excellent customer service, it faced a huge challenge after buying National and Alamo in 2007. Among other things, it had to integrate different cultures, manage a varied workforce, and meet the needs of a much larger and highly divergent customer base.

In Driving Loyalty, you’ll get an inside look at how Enterprise began operating these three distinct brands in a way that ultimately led to rising profitability and some of the highest customer and employee satisfaction scores in the industry. You’ll also discover how other thriving companies—from JetBlue and Starbucks to Costco and even Chobani Yogurt—use similar techniques to outsmart the competition and turn customers and employees into raving fans.

Driving Loyalty provides a blueprint that businesses of all types can use to deliver exceptional customer service, create a high-performing work environment, build strong brands, instill loyalty, market effectively online and off, and, in turn, power overall performance. 

In the pages of Driving Loyalty, you'll learn:

- Specific strategies for offering exceptional service that will help to increase sales and grow your business.
- Principles for developing engaged, high-performing teams
- Why the rules of brand building differ based on your target audience
- How to effectively leverage social media to better connect with your customers and employees
- Why forming strong partnerships can take your company--and your career--to the next level
- And much more

    Praise for Making Dough "I was enchanted, intrigued, and fascinated by every page of this book. Kirk Kazanjian, Amy Joyner, and Dick Clark (yes, that Dick Clark) have done a masterful job of storytelling in Making Dough. The book is inspirational, enlightening, and just plain great reading. In fact, it's great reading with sprinkles on it. What a yummy book!" -Jay Conrad Levinson Bestselling Author, Guerrilla Marketing series of books "Krispy Kreme's success goes well beyond being a retail phenomenon. This book will show you what went on behind the scenes to build the company. Along the way, it will teach you how you can take a product that is seemingly counter-culture and turn it into an addictive brand." -Phil Lempert Author, Being the Shopper and Today show food trends editor "Words can't do justice to Krispy Kreme doughnuts-just eat one! But as a fan of the product, it's interesting to read this business success story." -Vince Gill Singer/Songwriter "You know what? You have absolutely no chance of starting the next Krispy Kreme!

Without doubt, you should pay attention to what Krispy Kreme is doing, especially if you want to prosper in today's competitive world." -From the Foreword by Dick Clark Producer, Entertainer, and Krispy Kreme Franchisee
