CANdemonium Is Back!

April 8th, 2020 by

What an unbelievable spring it has been. Our dealerships have faced the challenge of keeping their doors open to offer essential services, all while keeping our employees healthy and trying to organize a meal drive that will help feed our neighbors in need. And what a gift it has been to see our teammates assemble these meals with thankful hearts and lots of creativity.

Once again, we received many impressive entries for the CANdemonium competition. For those new to the competition, it was created to share one-of-a-kind ideas of how our employees engage their fellow teammates throughout the meal drive. Whether it was how the dealership displayed their meal drive items or how they encouraged others to creatively give back given the threat of Covid-19, we were blown away by the participation and innovation.


We are excited to announce that the first place winner of the 2020 Spring Meal Drive CANdemonium competition is Gwinnett Place Honda! The dealership built an entire football stadium out of their collected items, including using canned goods as their athletes.

Guess you could say this submission was quite the touchdown!


The second place finisher for the 2020 Spring Meal Drive CANdemonium competition is Hendrick Honda of Charleston. They built a pineapple fountain out of their meal drive goods, and even had customers throwing in good luck pennies.

Now that is one fine-apple!


Here are the other entries from this spring’s CANdemonium competition.
