Snap-on Tools, which has franchise owners located worldwide, held its annual Snap-on Franchisee Conference in Orlando, Florida. Snap-on Tools franchise owners, who sell tools to technicians and professionals at vehicle dealerships and repair centres and in the marine, powersports and aviation industries, attended the event to learn about the latest in product innovation and technology, in addition to gaining information on how to improve their business management.
Nearly 2,200 Snap-on Tools franchise owners attended the conference, which also celebrated the company’s 90th anniversary. Barrie Young, President of Sales and Franchising for Snap-on Tools, said: “Our three-day conference is a perfect example of Snap-on’s commitment to our franchisees, making sure they stay ahead of the curve when it comes to business skills, productivity solutions and the latest advancements in technology. This milestone conference was the single largest gathering of Snap-on franchisees in our company’s history. Snap-on has been a leader for nine decades in providing innovative vehicle repair solutions. Not many companies get to celebrate a 90th anniversary.
“Snap-on franchisees are the industry experts when it comes to tools and information to help technicians in their jobs. This year we continued with our ‘Learn More, Earn More’ theme, helping our franchisees improve their product knowledge and understanding of industry trends, while giving them the resources they need to run their businesses as efficiently as possible. We also gave them a look into the future by introducing more than 150 of our latest products and demonstrating how those Snap-on innovations will help technicians be more productive each and every day.
“This was the best conference we have ever held in regards to attendance and the enthusiasm of our franchisees. We even bought out Universal Studios Florida on Saturday evening to demonstrate our appreciation to our franchisees and their families who attended the conference.”
