Retail Excellence Awards: Expanding Beyond the “Audio Advisors” Name
Founded in 1982 as a traditional car stereo company, Palm Beach, Fla.-based Audio Advisors has adapted with the ever-evolving retail and consumer technology industries over the last 35 years. Today, the showroom vaguely resembles what a customer might’ve seen walking through the front door way back when, but all of the change has resulted in the company morphing into an award-winning Electronic Systems Contractor that sells, integrates and services every kind of electronic or electrical system in homes and automobiles.
What started as a car audio company has grown into a massive business with expertise in home theater, lighting design and control, motorized windows, communications systems, security, networking, outdoor LED landscaping, and more.
The singular Audio Advisors retailer outfit now exists under The Advisor Companies umbrella, as President Jeff Hoover explained. The Advisor Companies, a 2017 Dealerscope Retail Excellence Award honoree, consists of the legacy brand as well as Serious Autosport, a custom automotive company; Triple Triangle Designs, a custom embroidery shop; and the company’s custom install division that works on homes, boats, and more.
