PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — TBC Corp.'s Big O Tires unit is targeting 10 Big O-branded store openings in the first quarter, as it progresses with plans to take the franchise program nationwide.
"We are excited to continue to adapt, improve, grow and attract new franchisees," Big O President and COO Brian Maciak said.
"It's through the entrepreneurial spirit of our franchisees that we are able to push new boundaries, expand our footprint and remain true to our commitment of being 'The Team You Trust.'"
The new franchised stores will open in Arizona, Iowa, North Dakota, Tennessee and Washington.
Big O did not say how many franchisees are involved in the new store openings nor did it identify the franchisees.
The TBC business unit also identifies on its website two additional store locations in Payson, Utah, and Colorado Springs, Colo., that are scheduled to open in late summer.
There are over 470 franchised Big O stores in operation in 25 states.
