ARLINGTON, Texas -- National convenience store broker TNT Marketing has teamed with Fort Walton Beach, Fla.-based TLM Industries, a manufacturer of corporate-image-enhancing uniforms with embroidered logos.

Uniforms are something a little different for TNT Marketing, said TNT's Kennith Fries. However, with the trend in c-stores becoming that of a more clean, professional and branded look, I am confident that this will be a successful program. Also, representing TLM gives TNT Marketing the opportunity to delve more deeply into each account because we [image-nocss] will visit other departments such as human resources.

With such notable customers in the convenience store industry as Ports Petroleum, Spectrum, SSP/Circle K and Tesoro, TLM also makes uniforms for other industry clients such as Pizza Hut, IGA and Whataburger.
