Introducing Our Newest Frames: Franklin Bobby

 

Men's Designer Glasses

Every hardworking employee deserves recognition, and here at Stanton Optical, we do just that. Every year the hardest working store General Manager is rewarded for their hard work and dedication to the company and their employees. This reward comes in the form of having them design the newest line of frames.
This year we are celebrating our West Palm Beach store General Manager: Francisco Pineiro and his team.

Francisco has been working for Stanton Optical since 2013 and his favorite part about working for Stanton Optical is “meeting new faces everyday, and the family environment my store has.”

This isn’t Francisco’s first rodeo in sales and managing. He has been in sales for 16 years and 13 of those he’s spent managing. Some might attribute his success to his experience, but Francisco attributes his success to his team.

“It’s not a one man show. I don’t ask my team members to do something I wouldn’t do. I was always taught that a great leader isn’t someone that is standing behind, it’s someone manning the front lines with your staff.”

One of Francisco’s team members that attributed to their success and participated in the Franklin Bobby design is Roberto Garzon.

Roberto has been working with Stanton Optical since 2013 and is the current General Manager at our Palm Springs, FL  location.  Roberto states that the best part about working for Stanton Optical is “working with people from all walks of life and knowing that I have made a positive impact on their quality of life by helping them achieve better vision.”

Roberto attributes his success and the success of the store to Francisco’s exceptional coaching. Their secret to success was creating a strong relationship with their team. They believe that success does not come from just individual, but rather the entire team. Furthermore, Roberto states that they couldn’t have achieved their goal without the customers.

“Success could not have come without our patients, delivering them quality products and providing superior customer service.”

It is no surprise that this dynamic duo’s relationship has developed into a lasting friendship that goes beyond glasses. When asked what he liked most about working for Francisco, Roberto stated “Francisco taught me everything I know about being a successful manager. I learned a lot from him and his incredible work ethic. He is a great boss and an even better friend.”

It is also no surprise that Francisco asked Roberto to assist him in designing and developing Stanton Optical’s newest line of frames, Franklin Bobby.

The Franklin Bobby line focuses on bold, high-end designs that provide a sophisticated and modern look. It is perfect for the young professional that walks the line between work and play. Its offers them the perfect balance between Hollywood – worthy and wearable fashion. The Franklin Bobby frames feature brushed metals, sharp edges, and anonymous glamour. These frames are the antithesis to factory-produced frames slapped with luxury fashion labels. There are a total of six frame designs, that pulled inspiration from Oakley, featuring sports-performance eyewear designs for today’s modern trailblazers. This exclusive Franklin Bobby collection will be priced between $139 – $179. Hurry into one of our Stanton Optical locations to get your pair of Franklin Bobby glasses before they run out. They are the perfect pair for back to school and the fall fashion trend setter!
