April 9, 2013. Mercer, PA - Flynn's Tire Wholesale held another successful Gold Standard Travel Program to Dublin, Ireland in early April, hosting over 100 qualifying dealers, key suppliers, and employees, along with their guests. This marks the 3rd international travel excursion sponsored by Flynn's Tire Wholesale Division. While the previous Gold Standard incentive trips have included Punta Cana in 2012 and Puerto Vallarta in 2011, this trip holds special significance for Flynn's as it is the birth country of John J. Flynn, who founded Flynn's Tire Company nearly 50 years ago.

Shaun Fitzgerald, General Manager of Flynn's Tire Wholesale summarized the event. This trip was designed to thank our wholesale customers for their business relationship with Flynn's Tire and share some of the Irish history of Flynn's Tire Group. The group spent the week at the historic Shelbourne Hotel located in the heart of Dublin and was treated to an itinerary full of traditional food, Irish Ale, and extensive site seeing and touring. Some highlights of the trip included tours of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College, Guinness Storehouse, a Musical Pub Crawl and a grand farewell shindig at the Old Jameson Distillery.

Flynn's President Joe Flynn, III emphasized the importance of taking time to thank all those responsible for supporting the industry that his family has been a part of for 3 generations. "The tire business isn't an easy business to be successful in, it is often a daily battleā€, Flynn says. "Everyday we 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".

The 4th Annual Gold Standard Travel Program is already in the planning process and another fun and exciting destination has been chosen. To find out how you can be a guest on this 2014 trip, visit your nearest Flynn's Tire Wholesale location or contact Shaun Fitzgerald at 412-600-2973.
