Congratulations to the Indy’s Best!

Our customers are awesome! Not only do they make us smile, stop by just to say hello, or bring us the occasional cookie, but they also make our rental equipment look stunning with their amazing culinary creations, design aesthetic and sheer talent. Simply put, they’re amazing. And we’re not the only ones who feel this way!

A few weeks ago Indy Weekly, the local publication of everything fun, interesting, and thought provoking, went to print with their annual “Indy’s Best” edition. After tallying the votes from thousands of Triangle residents, the Indy agreed with our conclusion – the Triangle is home to some pretty awesome and talented individuals and companies. We feel so fortunate to work with a number of the winners! Those recognized do so much for the hospitality, culinary and event industry in the Triangle that sometimes it seems we’re swimming in a sea of excellence.

We don’t mean to brag – but we like to consider ourselves one of the many facilitators of this excellence. It’s been said that we are all in the service industry; we all have customers or those that we answer to. In order to be successful, we must give of ourselves to that service. Our service at APR is much more than providing a table or chair. Our service is to make our clients’ jobs easier by providing them with the tools they need so they may provide their service, that bit of themselves, to their clients and the Triangle community. We are honored to provide rental items and service for special moments in many people’s lives, but moreover we are honored to collaborate with such fine professionals to facilitate their awesomeness!

Without any further adieu, our awesome (winning) customers, as revealed by your votes and the Indy Weekly;
