A Tinian resident has won a brand new 2020 Kia Soul in Joeten Enterprises Inc.’s 70th Anniversary Mega Giveaway raffle draw.

Molly Sakisat’s name was picked last Friday at the new Joeten Motor Co. Ford and Honda showroom on Beach Road.

The second major prize was a $500 shopping spree that went to Ben Duenas from Saipan.

The Mega Giveaway raffle draw was in celebration of Joeten Enterprises Inc.’s 70th anniversary and their way of thanking the community for their continued patronage of Joeten companies in the CNMI.

JC Tenorio Enterprises business development manager Roman “Bo” T. Palacios said the 70 years in the company’s history speaks of the foundation for the company’s growth in the next 70 years.

“From 1949 to the many years to come, we are wholly committed to serving the community and this would not be possible without the support of our community. From all our customers, to all our employees, business partners, bankers and people in the government, there is not one person we cannot thank enough for helping us make it all this way,” he said.

“We are looking at strengthening those relationships in the next 70 years and we are excited about it,” he added.

Aside from Joeten Motors Co, the businesses of the Tenorio family also includes Joeten Ace Hardware, Joeten Superstore Whole Sale Club Store, J.C. Enterprises which manages the supermarket and department stores, Marianas Management Corp. that deals with commercial real estate properties, the Athlete’s Foot, NAPA Auto Parts, Construction Material & Supply Inc., and Pacifica Insurance Underwriters Inc.

“The third generation of the family…are completely committed to extending the legacy that was started by our grandparents, continued by our parents and, hopefully, will continue with us,” Palacios said.

He said there are new businesses that being planned at the moment. “This family is committed and excited about it.”
