Spokane Howard Johnson Inn's Fredrick Schoener
Named Howard Johnson International's
National Salesperson of the Year


Spokane, WA  June 10, 2005 – Howard Johnson International recently presented Fredrick Schoener of the Spokane Howard Johnson Inn with its National Salesperson of the Year award.  This is a back-to-back win’s for Mr. Schoener taking this award at 2003, 2005 conventions.  No other Director of Sales has been honored with these award’s two consecutive conventions.  This honor recognizes salespeople who consistently excel at developing relationships, promoting their hotel, and most importantly, filling rooms.
Presented by Howard Johnson International President Ken Greene, the National Advertising and Direct mail Award is presented to Fredrick Schoener “for his innovative and out of the box marketing ideas such as Cars Eat Free,” said President Ken Greene.

"Cars Eat Free" was created to increase walk--ins by offering an all inclusive tank of gas, breakfast and overnight accommodations.  Key factor of the promotion was to give the guest instant gratification, when they checked in the guest would receive the gas card immediately with no strings attached.
