Larry Sutton, founder and president of Rent-n-Roll Custom Wheels and Tires, has rolled up agreements with franchisees in 13 states and has more pending in at least 19 states. That makes 29 Rent-n-Roll stores now open and 147 already under contract to open within the next five years, he said. While he's growing his business, the owners of a similar rent-to-own program, Tire Time Rentals Inc. in Texas, told Tire Business the company is scaling back the operation-to nine stores from 27-and has ended franchise accords in California and New Mexico. Tire Time is now concentrating only on its home state. For a story on Rent-n-Roll, turn to page 14.
Larry's still on a roll
