Meet Tampa Tile Contractors: JJ&D Tile Installation and Rolando Tile, LLC

Meet Tampa Tile Contractors: Tile Outlets of America 2016 Event

Meet two Tampa tile contractors: JJ&D Tile Installation and Rolando Tile, LLC. They are customers of Tile Outlets of America and attended the annual Trade Pro Appreciation Party. They also each won one of two grand prizes: tickets to the Daytona 500 and a large screen TV.

Every year, Tile Outlets of America celebrates tile installation professionals during the annual Trade Pro event. After all, they are the ones who install the products we sell, transforming the dreams of homeowners into reality.

(For additional perspective on the tile contractor events, you can read Tile Outlets Appreciates Tile Contractors! and Celebrating Tampa Tile Contractors from the 2015 event.)

We enjoy these events because it's an opportunity to spend time getting to know our customers and their families outside of the store environment.

Up until this year, the Tampa event took place at the Tampa store. However, we've outgrown the store and celebrated this year in a space that made for great interaction and relaxing conversation as you can see in the image below.

In this article, we introduce you to two tile contractors based in the Tampa, Florida area.
