Vehicle Pick of the Week: If you're in the retail business, this minicoach will be a great asset to your fleet.
RANDOLPH, Mass. -- Throughout history buses have served a specific purpose. Sometimes they were used to make a social statement (Ken Kesey’s “Psychedelic Bus”), or to market pop culture (TV’s “Partridge Family” bus), or to educate our children (“The Magic School Bus”). But every now and then a bus comes along for one simple purpose, to have FUN!
As big and in-your-face as the man who inspired it, THE GRONK BUS debuted several months ago, inviting party-goers to partake of this 25-passenger party-on-wheels. Customized inside and out by the Gronkowski Family, passengers have enjoyed such amenities as two flat screen TVs (43 & 24 inches), ceiling LED lighting depicting a football field, a lighted party wall showing a football scoreboard and the final results of the 2015 Super Bowl, Gronk memorabilia, a bar, restroom, and even a dancer pole. And now the next step in The Gronk Bus evolution has taken place.
To make The Gronk Bus as accessible as pushing an app on a phone, the Gronkowski Family has entered into a partnership with ETS International, a Boston-based ground transportation company. ETS International will use its advanced technology and 30 years of limousine experience to not only use its base of award-winning chauffeurs, but also implement its state-of-the-art customer service technology into making The Gronk Bus’ reservation process as easy and customer friendly as possible.
In making the announcement, Dan Gronkowski said on behalf of the family, “Our goal was always to make The Gronk Bus not only accessible to as many people as possible, but also make that access just a simple app away. With ETS we found the perfect partner, a company with strong Boston roots who not only knows the ground transportation game but a company that has at its fingertips the latest technology our customers need and expect.”
With close to 100 chauffeurs and a fleet of 50 vehicles, ETS International has won numerous industry awards, including the LCT Operator of the Award in 2014 and 2010. ETS President Johnny Greene said this relationship is another feather in the company’s cap.
“Next to maybe Tom Brady, there’s no bigger personality on the New England football scene than Rob Gronkowski,” Greene said. “We think allowing people to ‘party like Gronk’ is a tremendous idea and we are excited about the role we will be playing in helping to bring the party to the people.”
Adds Rob Gronkowski, “I enjoy surrounding myself with winning players, and ETS International has shown over the years that they know how to do it right!”
