Big O Tires Opens Two New Franchise Locations
March 16, 2016—Big O Tires announced Wednesday the opening of two new franchise stores in Indiana, owned and operated by franchisee Joe Peil.
Peil, with 20 years of industry experience, previously operated these locations under the name Joe’s Auto Service. With the two new stores, one in Noblesville and one in Carmel, Big O Tires now has 20 locations in Indiana.
“Big O Tires was a perfect fit,” said Peil. “The breadth of product offerings, support from operations, solid and proven infrastructure, and their overall buying power as a leading franchise organization helped to make my decision an easy one and I am very confident in the decision that I have made.”
“It‘s exciting to see successful independent operators like Joe join the Big O Tires organization,” said Kevin Kormondy, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Big O Tires. “We are committed to helping each and every one of our franchisees; from the beginning stages of evaluation through facility assistance and training, we’re confident that our talented field support team can assist new franchisees to enhance the operation of their business. We’re thrilled to have Joe as part of the Big O family.”
Big O Tires now has 389 franchisee-owned stores and two company-owned stores in 19 states.
