BOISE, ID – BOB, a leading manufacturer of specialty jogging strollers and stroller accessories has been named USA BABY Vendor of the Year – a prestigious award based on votes by franchisees of USA BABY, America's leading specialty retailer of infant and children's furniture and accessories.

USA BABY gives out five Vendor of the Year Awards annually, with each corresponding to a specific materials category. BOB was announced as the winner of the USA BABY Vendor of the Year Award in the “Metals” category on Saturday, September 8.

To determine the award recipient, USA BABY asked all of their franchisees – totaling more than 55 – to submit their votes based on the company's quality of merchandise, customer service, USA BABY loyalty, shipping, communication and profit margin.

“Our customers love BOB strollers and our salespeople love to sell BOB strollers. I love what they do for the bottom line, “ said Dawn Elig, who cast her vote for BOB and is the sole owner and president of USA BABY in San Juan Capistrano, CA. “They are the best in quality and always offer on-time shipping. We make more money on BOB strollers than any of the other stroller lines we feature.”

BOB has become a market leader in the jogging stroller industry since its first introduction, the Sport Utility Stroller, in 1998. The Boise, ID-based company now boasts several specialty models that are specifically designed to meet the needs of consumers looking for a product that offers a high level of performance and quality. Value-added features such as state-of-the-art suspension systems, extended seat recline capabilities and adjustable tracking systems are married with high-quality materials and innovative and performance-enhancing design elements to create strollers with longevity.

“We've sold so much BOB product,” said Jim Ruess, a USA BABY franchise owner in Salt Lake City, UT, who also voted for BOB. “It's a top–notch product – one of the highest quality, smoothest pushing strollers currently on the market.”

USA BABY has stores throughout the United States and Mexico and is continually growing and moving toward its goal of becoming the premier retailer of infant and children's furniture and accessories. With annual gross sales of over 70 million dollars, the company is consistently among the Top 100 Furniture Retailers in America and is considered by many as a Top 50 Franchise Organization.

“We are a specialty chain store, so the quality level of the BOB products are a perfect fit,” said Tom Gierlak, vice president of franchise operations for USA BABY. “From great service to resourceful employees, BOB offers a higher standard than most – both as a company and as a manufacturer.”

Look for BOB Strollers and accessories in baby stores and sporting goods stores nationwide. BOB formed in 1994 as one of the first manufacturers of single-wheeled bicycle cargo trailers. As the founders of the company became fathers, they designed and developed the first Sport Utility Stroller in 1998. For more information, visit the website at www.bobgear.com.
