UniFirst: NGCOA Arizona Member Program

unifirst-logo

 

NGCOA Arizona has reached an agreement with Annual Sponsor, UniFirst Corporation.

UniFirst is a nationwide uniform and service provider and has put together a very competitively priced program for our member courses.

How do members win with Unifirst?

  • 25%-40% savings for uniforms and facility services (paper products, soap, mats, mops, towels).
  • Garment prep charges (name emblems, company emblems, bar coding) are waived for the first 30 days (standard sizes only) and discounted for employees added after that period (approximately 60% savings).
  • Uniform pressing, repairs, size exchanges and automatic garment replacements are included in the weekly pricing.
  • New employees will receive their garments within 1 week of the request for standard garments in normal size ranges.
  • UniFirst will inspect all garments during the cleaning process. All repairs needed due to normal wear and tear will be done at no cost to the Customer.
  • UniFirst will automatically replace garments before they become so worn as to impact either appearance or function. This replacement will be done at no charge to the Customer, though the emblem and garment preparation charges will apply at a discounted rate (approximately 60% savings).
  • The service charge (AKA “DEFE”- Delivery, Energy, Fuel, Environmental) is discounted to $6.50/week (normally this is around $15/week depending on the location).
  • Outstanding service

We encourage you to review the UniFirst program before signing or renewing a contract with another uniform provider. We are aware of instances in which the savings was nearly $7,000 in the first year with the UniFirst program.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Reach key stakeholders in the Arizona golf business by partnering with us.

Through sponsorships, advertising, networking events and more, NGCOA Arizona offers numerous ways to establish credibility and maintain exposure of your brand among those that matter most.

Why Partner?

It’s simple. No other state golf association is dedicated to serving the industry’s core decision-makers – golf course owners and operators. In doing so programs, events, content and other opportunities are created which, in turn, creates unique and exclusive opportunities for a limited number of golf course suppliers and distributors to target these key individuals.

Whether through sponsorship of initiatives and events, networking and speaking opportunities, or simply relationship building, the NGCOA Arizona can ensure your sales goals are met by connecting you with your most promising prospects in Arizona golf.
