"I’m Lovin' It"
McDonald's #13058, Rosemont, Illinois
"When making such a big investment, you have to trust the people you buy from. Anyone can say something up front to get you to buy... I’ve had other manufacturers try to sell me displays, but I’m very happy with Daktronics."
Dennis Stabile, Owner, McDonald's
Dennis Stabile, owner of a McDonald's in Rosemont, Ill., has used Daktronics LED displays at his restaurants since 1996. When it came time to remodel his Rosemont location, there was no question he would again choose Daktronics. "I knew I wanted to upgrade to a larger, full-color video display," said Stabile. "The bigger display allows you to do so much more."
The Daktronics Solution
In the service industry himself, Stabile understands the value of good customer service. "I know that when I call Daktronics, I will get the help I need," said Stabile. "The techs are always helpful, and they even ship parts overnight so that they are here in the morning for a service call."
You also have to be able to depend on the company long term. "I've heard people say that they can get a cheaper display somewhere else, even after I recommend Daktronics," said Stabile. "One person I know saved a little money with another manufacturer, but not long after, the same manufacturer went out of business. In the long run, they lost a lot more than they had saved."
Stabile uses his display for more than just store promotions. He often runs content to promote school fundraisers, church events, and other local activities. "We donated to the Rosemont Police Department to help with a softball league they were organizing," said Stabile. "We also decided to promote their event on the display. A week later, they called and said that the phone had not stopped ringing since the message went up. They filled the tournament in less than a week."
Since installing his first display, Stabile advocates Daktronics. "When making such a big investment, you have to trust the people you buy from," said Stabile. "Anyone can say something upfront to get you to buy, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's true. I've had other manufacturers try to sell me displays, but I’m very happy with Daktronics."
Trust is also the reason Stabile chose Sure Light Sign Company when purchasing and installing the sign. "I moved to the Chicago area 23 years ago and have since worked with a lot of sign companies, but I choose to continue working with Sure Light Sign because of their professionalism," said Stabile. "I know I can trust them to do a quality job when working on my display. About 80% of 750 McDonald’s in the region use Sure Light Signs."
