Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling Receives Nominations for Five Different Categories for this year’s Readers’ Choice Best of 2018 Award
Tucson, AZ.: Every year, the Arizona Daily Star and Tucson.com hold a contest where readers in the community can nominate and vote for their favorite businesses in a variety of different categories. Since the contest started in 2015, over 430,000 votes have been cast for Tucsonans favorite businesses. Last year, Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling was proud to be the recipient of the Readers’ Choice 2017 Award for Best Plumber. This year, the company is up for four categories: Best Plumber, Best Air Conditioning/Heating Service, Most Innovative Workplace, and Best Workplace Culture. In addition, Kevin Cummings, Owner of Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling, is up for Best Boss. In each category, Cummings joins only two other finalists for the award; which will be announced at the annual awards ceremony on August 29th, 2018.
“I need a minute…” said Kevin Cummings. “When we got the news of the initial nominations, I was already deeply touched and moved. Now, I am humbled and grateful beyond words. Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling has been in our family for six generations. Every day, I wonder if I’m doing the right things and making the right decisions for both the company and my employees. In addition to that, I wonder if the things I’m doing would meet the approval of those who preceded me. With this news, I know that my dad is looking down on me and that he’s beaming with pride and excitement. He was my biggest fan and he was everything to me. My dad left me this company; his legacy. I’m glad that I can make him proud. I am deeply moved when I think about how far we’ve come as a business and of all of our accomplishments. This, of course, would not have happened without the hard work, dedication, and loyalty of all of my employees. They are the ones who make things happen on a daily basis. Then, there’s all of our customers and Tucson. Without them, we wouldn’t be in business. So to everyone, I sincerely want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“I can’t believe it,” said Elaine Lee, Office Manager of Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling. “I knew that we were up for three categories but I didn’t realize that we’d become finalists for five. That completely took us by surprise. We’ve worked so hard on our brand and image over the last year; to show everyone who we truly are and the kind of company we are. We are focusing on giving back to the community and have made a commitment to education. This tells me that our hard work and efforts are paying off. I’ve known the Cummings family for a very long time and I know that the entire family is just beaming with joy and excitement right now. I also know that they are extremely touched. Tucson, thank you for your commitment and loyalty to us. We love it here and are glad to be a part of such a great community.”
