HENDERSON, Nev. (July 18, 2016) — Big O Tires franchisee Mark Rhee has opened his 12th franchised store in Nevada, a five-bay store in Henderson.
“We are fortunate and pleased to open our 12th location in the Las Vegas market to provide customers with legendary customer service in a family-like atmosphere,” Mr. Rhee said.
Mr. Rhee is a new Big O franchisee, having taken over 11 corporate-owned Big O locations in the Las Vegas metro area within the past year. The newest store, on South Boulder Highway in south-central Henderson, was an existing store as well, which is now advertised as "under new management."
This new store is the 21st Big O store in Nevada and 388th nationwide. Henderson is a city of 270,000-plus inhabitants located southeast of Las Vegas.
“Mark is a great franchise partner who truly understands the Big O Tires brand,” said Kevin Kormondy, executive vice president and COO of Big O Tires, a TBC Corp. subsidiary.
“His knowledge of the industry, execution of processes, and commitment to exceeding customer expectations is a strong representation of the foundation of Big O Tires and our success. We are very excited to have the opportunity to continue to grow with Mark.”
The store, the third Big O location in Henderson, opened on May 19.
Big O's 388 stores — including two company-owned stores — are located primarily in the Western and Midwestern U.S.
