New partnership with the Hop-In shuttle provides free shuttle service for local community to ‘make life easier’

Greenville, S.C. – September 16, 2019 – The Spinx Company, the Greenville S.C.-based fuel and convenience retail company is excited to ‘make life easier’ through a partnership with Hop In, a free downtown low-speed vehicle ride and shuttle service. In advance of the busy fall season featuring Euphoria and Fall for Greenville, Spinx has begun providing complimentary shuttle rides for the local community looking to travel anywhere from Flour Field to the top of Main street (and back).

The Spinx wrapped Hop In will be driving up and down Main Street during the hours of 10:30 a.m. – dusk., seven days a week.  The shuttle can accommodate up to five guests per vehicle and will ultimately aid in the reduction of downtown traffic, as well as help support a growing need for transportation from one end of Main St. to the other.

“We are so excited to partner with Hop In and provide the local community with a complimentary and safe transportation shuttle service,” stated Stewart Spinks. “We are truly making life easier! Sponsoring a vehicle will hopefully bring more aid for those walking around downtown as well as something unique for the community to enjoy while downtown.”

The community is encouraged to simply wave down the Hop In shuttle for a complimentary ride or for $5.00, can call the on-demand number at (650) 670-0076 to request a pick-up at a specific time and location. On occasion, Spinx coupons and gift cards can be found within the Spinx wrapped shuttle for the community to enjoy.

Spinx Company recently honored at awards ceremony in Columbia

Greenville, S.C. – September 9, 2019 – The Spinx Company, the Greenville S.C.-based fuel and convenience retail company with more than 82 locations, 45 car washes, and 1,400 associates statewide, was recently recognized at a reception in Columbia as the 12th Best Place to Work in South Carolina, within the ‘large company’ category. The 14th annual program was created by SC Biz News in partnership with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.

Spinx was honored as one of 75 companies and experienced a record-breaking 96% percent response rate from its teammates for the survey-based awards program. This survey-and-awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state of South Carolina, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

“I am absolutely thrilled that we have been recognized within the top 15 places to work in South Carolina,” stated Stewart Spinks, founder, and chair of the board for The Spinx Company. “With such an incredible response rate of 96%, I am honored that our teammates and the local community took the time to share their sentiments about the incredible work culture we’ve been building in recent years. It is a true testament to the outstanding people we have here at Spinx and we look forward to continuing the momentum into the future.”

Spinx President, Stan Storti added, “Although I’m pleasantly surprised by the response rate, I’m not surprised by the outcome.  I’ve witnessed an incredible cultural change over my 14 years with Spinx and especially in the last 5 years as we’ve put culture building processes around our core values.  Spinx is an incredible place to work and we want our friends and neighbors to know, so that’s why we participated in this year’s program.”

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • be a publicly or privately held business;
  • have a facility in the state of South Carolina;
  • have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of South Carolina; and
  • be in business a minimum of 1 year

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
