CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Jan. 14, 2016) — Tire Pros Francorp. has hit a major milestone, converting its 700th Tire Pros franchise store location with the signing of Same Day Tire and Auto Repair, a five-outlet chain operating in the greater Tulsa, Okla., market.
With Same Day Tire and Auto Repair owners Danny and Tina Smith officially joining Tire Pros in late December, the franchiser ended 2015 with a net gain of 65 stores and a final total of 702 locations representing more than 500 individual owners, according to the company.
“We are pleased with last year's store growth and expect similar growth for the foreseeable future as more and more independent dealers recognize the depth of support provided through the Tire Pros franchise,” said Tire Pros President Dan Brown.
“In 2015, 36 percent of our new location growth came from multi-store regional dealers who seek deeper operational and marketing support and broader association with like-minded tire retailers. Our five newest stores are great examples of this.”
