The Cahall brothers of Brown County, Ohio were honored earlier this week with the Peter Drucker Award Distinction for the Cahall Brothers John Deere dealership that's been run by their family since 1953, according to a published report.
Roland and Kyle were honored January 31 at the Brown County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast, according to the News Democrat of Georgetown. Their father, Calvin, started the business with his brother Perry. Kyle's sons Toby and Cory run two additional Deere dealerships bearing the family name.
"This isn't an Emmy award, it's much better than that," Kyle Cahall said at the breakfast. "This comes from the people in the community who we have been serving all this time. It's an honor to receive this award, but we've never done what we do in the hopes of receiving awards."
After completing high school, Roland and Kyle started working at the store and ultimately assumed ownership. Kuyle's sons run the stores in Amelia and Flemingsburg, which were opened in 2006 and 2009, respectively.
"It's a joy to go to work and to have employees who enjoy coming to work every day," Roland Cahall said.
