Snap-on Franchisee Conference Draws Record Numbers
Aug. 21, 2015—The Snap-on Franchisee Conference (SFC) drew record setting attendance for its annual gathering, the company announced on Wednesday. The three-day business conference, held this year in Washington, D.C., brings together Snap-on Tool franchisees for insight, information and celebration. This year marked Snap-on’s 95th Anniversary.
“Snap-on franchisees are at the core of the sustained business success Snap-on has enjoyed throughout our 95-year history,” says Tom Kassouf, president of the Snap-on Tools Group. “They are dedicated to serving their customers who depend on Snap-on tools for critical tasks, as many of them have done for decades. Sharing time and information with our franchisees is one of the highlights of the year for all of us. And, meeting in Washington, D.C., a place recognized for its history, is fitting for a great American company like Snap-on.”
More than 8,000 attendees took part in SFC this year. Attendees were able to tour the product expo, learn directly from those who develop and produce the tools most preferred by technicians. They also attended seminars on techniques for advancing their businesses, which included hands-on demonstration experiences.
“Snap-on Tools franchisees are a dedicated group of independent entrepreneurs working toward achieving success for their customers and their own families. Our vision for SFC remains that every franchisee comes away equipped with knowledge and information about Snap-on products and programs that will support the choices they make to grow and develop their business,” says Kassouf.
