“Bradley Tire has seen growth year after year, and we're excited to join United Tire to grow even more,” Mr. Fidler said.
United Tire & Service, which bills itself as a “business partnership program” offering the services and benefits of a franchise without the associated revenue costs, launched in April of 2014. The business model is designed in a way to assist dealers in their daily operations, while also providing a flexible succession plan.
Since its launch, the program has grown to 22 retail outlets in the northeastern Mid-Atlantic U.S.
“Our continued success in the tire industry will have to come through innovation, synergies realized in our growing business partnerships program's and exceptional service and value that today's customers deserve and want. Bradley Tire is a great addition to our family of independent dealers,” said Greg Mynaugh, president of United Tire.
The company said it is continuing to add new locations across the Greater Philadelphia area throughout the remainder of 2015.
