Lamborghini’s concept is luxurious in its mayor expression. It dedicates to allow franchises from home company to different parts of the world. It dedicates to gastronomy (its own coffee, olive oil, vinegar, pastes, wines, clothing, watches, golf, shoes, perfumes, bags, etc.).

As independent entrepreneur, I acquired the franchise rights for Puerto Rico, USA and Caribbean islands. This franchise dedicated the furniture with the Miura car design from the inside part only. This concept included Tonino Lamborghini design similar to Starbuck’s Coffee store. The restaurant Tonino Lamborghini was similar to Macaroni and Grill restaurant. The Lounge looked as European bar concept. All this was under the Tonino Lamborghini’s franchise. I did a promotion of this company for Puerto Rico, for the first time. I made a publicity campaign to promote the brand name. It started with the initial campaign at Ritz Carlton Hotel in which Mr. Lamborghini came in person to promote the concept, which had great acceptance in the Puerto Rico market but expectations were not achieved due to the fact that the product was too expensive for the clients held at the time and the luxury of the products in question.
