PORTLAND, Ore. — GoMobile Tires USA is expanding its mobile tire-installation franchise service with the addition of 50 mobile service vans that it's building at a new facility in Jacksonville, Fla.
GoMobile serves markets in Kansas City, Mo.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Austin and McKinney, Texas; Las Vegas; Indianapolis; Vancouver, Wash.; and southern California.
Since the brand launch in 2019, the company said it has seen double-digit growth and is starting a multi-phase strategic plan to expand. The Portland-based firm did not disclose how many vans are in operation or how many franchisees it has.
"GoMobile Tires is focused on revolutionizing the tire-buying and installation process. There is no need to go to a tire shop when we can bring the tire shop to your doorstep," GoMobile Tires CEO Derek Naidoo said.
"This expansion is just the beginning of the technologically advanced operational system we are implementing for our current and future franchisees and customers. Our continued growth, technology development and exceptional service delivery to both our retail and fleet customers will guarantee our market success and produce excellent returns to our shareholders."
Phase One of the expansion program is the deployment of 50 additional GoMobile Tire vans out of a newly developed 20,000-sq.-ft. vehicle outfitting facility in Jacksonville. The company offers Mercedes Benz Sprinter or Ford Transit vans.
The company said the new facility includes a national training center for all GoMobile Tires franchisees and tire technicians.
"Our focus of energy savings and 'green' technology development has allowed us to eliminate gas-powered generators and utilize solar panels and batteries to produce the highest quality and most efficient mobile tire vehicles in the industry," the company said.
Phase Two of the expansion includes a national call center to manage all calls and appointments around the country.
"With the launch of this facility, technicians can focus on job one: outstanding customer experience and precision tire installation," the company said.
