Our Women's Power project is growing faster every day and ensures that the perception that the profession is not gender-dependent is adopted at the social level.

We did cooperation with the best brands in their fields such as “In bakery by Divan”, “Koçtaş”, “Starbucks on the go”, “Lipton”, “Dardanel Mister No”, “Rossmann”, “Automix”, “TTec” and “Toyzz Shop”. The cleanliness and hygiene standards of our stations continue to be followed precisely as usual. With the yellow band application in the market, we act with waiting areas and directions suitable for social distance. We apply all our measures in constant communication with our dealers. As a result of all our determination and activities, we were among the 20 most valuable brands of our country in the Brandfinance 2020 Turkey Survey. According to the research results, we are the most valuable and strongest brand in our industry.

This year, Brand Finance conducted a unique market research covering 50 thousand people over the age of 18 in 29 countries for 10 different sectors. Brand Finance, which calculates the value of the brands in the ranking tables in line with the ISO 10668 standard, with the “Right Value” method, reaches the net brand value by adapting the right price to the revenue generated by the company based on the earnings to be obtained by licensing a licensor's brand in the open market. The 'Brand funnel' used in the research, which measures in terms of reputation, innovation, trust, emotional bond, advice, quality, awareness, reveals how the power of a brand turns into sales. Brand Finance calculates the strength of the brand using marketing investments, relative weight and performance metrics. For each industry, the range of rights and the rate of rights, which reflect the importance of the brand, are determined in the purchase decision. While the brand's power score is adapted to the range of rights, the share of the brand is determined within the company revenue. Taking into consideration the previous revenues, capital market analyst estimates and the growth rates of the economy, the future revenues are measured. Afterwards, the rate of entitlement is adapted to future revenue for the determination of brand revenue.
