Aug. 19, 2016—Snap-on recently held the 2016 Snap-on Franchisee Conference (SFC) in Orlando, Fla., at the 144,000-square-foot Product Expo with more than 8,700 attendees.
The conference highlighted the latest Snap-on product innovations, business seminars and programs to increase Snap-on franchise success. Franchisees could learn from five different business seminars, ranging from diagnostics to a panel on best practices. Snap-on also reserved the Universal Studios Florida theme park for franchisees and their guests and gave away a customer 1969 Camaro pool table in Snap-on red with working lights, real chrome, stainless steel bumpers, steel rims and a professional slate playing surface. The Saturday night event included a performance by Thompson Square.
“Snap-on Tools annual SFC is our most extensive opportunity to demonstrate the depth of support for our franchisees and their success,” says Tom Kassouf, president of the Snap-on Tools Group. “More than 1,000 associates and suppliers were on hand, meeting with franchisees face-to-face to demonstrate new products, teach new methods and expose franchisees to the latest in technology to run their businesses. Our SFC goal is for every franchisee to refresh their knowledge of the many initiatives in support of the profitable growth of their franchise business; to experience the exceptional range of products available to their customers; and to share experiences with thousands of their fellow franchisees.”
