RIVIERA MAYA, Mexico (April 11, 2014) — Flynn’s Tire Wholesale recently hosted 65 dealer couples, several key suppliers and employees for its fourth annual Gold Standard Travel Incentive Program trip to the resort area at Riviera Maya.
Flynn’s said the number of dealers who qualify for the incentive has grown every year.
“Each year we celebrate with our best dealers in the spirit of friendship and appreciation of their dedication by hosting these unique and memorable trips. Everyone works hard all year long and coming together on these trips for some rest and relaxation is something that our loyal dealers look forward to,” said Shaun Fitzgerald, general manager of Flynn’s Tire Wholesale.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating our 50th year in business on this trip with our loyal customers,” said Flynn’s President Joe Flynn III.
“The tire business is extremely competitive and to maintain the competitive edge we strive to put forth every effort we can to ensure outstanding customer service for our customers and show them how much we truly appreciate their choice of Flynn’s.
“It’s great to be able to provide the annual Gold Standard trip for our dealers and associates, not only to show our appreciation but also to provide them with a fun and entertaining escape.”
Next year’s dealer trip will be held April 13-17 at the Westin Playa Bonita in Panama City, Panama. Previous Gold Standard incentive trips have included Dublin, Ireland in 2013, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in 2012 and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2011.
Flynn's Tire Co. operates four warehouses and distributes most major tire brands to tire retailers, service stations and auto dealers in the Western Pennsylvania and East/Central Ohio region. Flynn’s also has 19 retail tire and auto service locations and four commercial tire outlets.
