South Burlington, VT—September 20, 2010— When John Crabbe began what is today one of the most successful tent rental businesses in Vermont, he looked to a national business leader for his inspiration. One quote in particular from Lee Iacocca resonated with Crabbe, “people do business with people, not businesses.” Crabbe knew early on in his career that he had to personalize the service that he gave his customers and become a significant contributor to his community. Those two guidelines helped to shape his leadership style and earn him the recognition of his peers with the 2010 Vermont Chamber of Commerce’s Allied Member of the Year award.


The Vermont Tent Company’s success owes much to the focus on personalized service that Crabbe has maintained since the onset. Integral to that, Crabbe instituted a solid education and training program for his employees through the American Rental Association. Nearly a dozen of the Vermont Tent employees have become Certified Event Rental Professionals, which ensures the highest quality of experience and professionalism for customers. To date the Vermont Tent Company employs the largest staff of Certified Event Rental Professionals in Vermont.  


All tolled, this visionary leadership has earned the Vermont Tent Company countless honors and awards.  From community service awards to National Small Business of the Year Award, the Vermont Tent Company has been recognized both nationally and within the state of Vermont, most recently, with the 2010 Vermont Chamber of Commerce’s Allied Member of the Year award. Celebrating his strong community connection, this award is designed to honor an individual who goes above and beyond in offering a service that supports the Vermont hospitality industry.


Small wonder hundreds of events each year credit the Vermont Tent Company for bringing their experience to the table. With a 35 year history of growth, success and innovation, and the promise of more good things to come, the Vermont Tent Company is truly one of a kind.
