Thomasville Cabinetry Named Most Recommended Brand by Women

Company recognized with the Women’s Choice Award® for Kitchen Cabinetry

Hollywood, FL - [JUNE 2, 2014] - As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified Inc. is delighted to honor Thomasville Cabinetry with the 2014 Women’s Choice Award® seal. This award designation is based on a national survey of thousands of women across America who were asked to select the brands they would most highly recommend to others.

“The Women’s Choice Award program works to raise awareness among consumers about which brands are most recommended by women and to honor those brands,” said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. “By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, companies like Thomasville signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices.”

According to a 2012 Fleishman Hillard Study, today’s U.S. female consumer values the opinion of others and over half of all women consider one of their roles to be that of a broadcaster, responsible for helping others make smart choices. It is not surprising that major brands, like Thomasville Cabinetry, now focus on delivering a customer experience women will love. The Women’s Choice Award has set the standard for helping women make smarter choices by identifying the brands most recommended and trusted by women, along with those that deliver a recommendation-worthy customer experience.

92% of Americans will seek out the recommendation of others before making a major decision (Nielsen Research 2012)

Nine out of 10 women would ‘definitely’ trust a brand more if it carried the Women’s Choice Award (Medelia Monitor 2013)

Women are earning, spending, and influencing spending at a greater rate than ever before, accounting for $7 trillion in consumer and business spending in the U.S. (Steven Parker Jr., 2014)

Ms. Passi says it’s important to note that the award doesn’t just signify that Thomasville has women’s favor – it signifies that women are willing to recommend it to others. “When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the No. 1 consumer – women,” she says.

"We are honored to be chosen by American women as a brand they trust and recommend," said Cindy Hahn, executive vice president of marketing, MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc. "It is our goal as a company to provide product excellence. We make it a priority to offer exceptional quality, fashionable design and competitive prices for homeowners."

“We are pleased to salute Thomasville Cabinetry for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide,” Passi says.
