KEENE, N.H.-Andrew and Diana Provencher, who own a Meineke Discount Muffler franchise in Plattsburgh, N.Y., have decided to enter the tire business via a Tire Warehouse Central Inc. ``Alternative No. 2'' franchise. The Alternative No. 2 franchise will allow the Provenchers to use the Tire Warehouse name and business system, while remaining independent in other aspects of their business.
Under the Tire Warehouse program, the Provenchers will add new, used and retreaded tires, custom wheels and an auto parts inventory to a business that already offers exhaust, brake and shock work, as well as alignments.
The Plattsburgh outlet will be Tire Warehouse Central's 19th franchise location. The Keene-based dealership also operates 25 company-owned tire stores.
