TKO’s founders, Christian and his wife Dayana Zarate bring over 25 years of industry experience to the world of heat transfers. Christian began his career at the bottom of the ladder as a sales associate and quickly worked his way up, becoming one of the most successful executives the transfer industry has seen. His success was built on one thing, relationships. Christian was inspired by all the success stories he helped facilitate and decided it was time for him to pursue his own American Dream.
With the help of his wife, Dayana, the Zarates founded TKO in 2018 on the bedrock of principles that skyrocketed Christian through the ranks of the heat transfer world. Principles such as: relationships matter and people come first, doing the right thing no matter what, and your word is your bond.
Leaning upon these principles, TKO saw immediate success within the Souvenir and Gift industry. Word quickly spread of the Zarates’ passion for their customers and TKO began shattering expectations. When the global pandemic hit, TKO was able to pivot by utilizing their relationships in manufacturing and logistics. The world needed quality Personal Protection Equipment at fair prices and TKO heeded the call. Christian and Dayana were able to quickly bring high quality masks to market at reasonable prices. Even during a time when others were price gouging, TKO held firm to one of their principles of doing the right thing no matter what. This served the company well and brought additional success. Customers knew they could trust TKO even during the most challenging of times.
Now the time has come for TKO to follow their true passion, manufacturing of Heat Transfers. The company is throwing their hat into the ring and will bring the core principles that built the foundation of TKO with them. The team Christian and Dayana has assembled is simply astounding. Each and every member of the team is committed to building the best possible relationship with EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER. The TKO corner is filled with deep industry experience and team members that are passionate about bringing the highest quality, best service and on time delivery every time.
