Strategy includes opening 10 new stores in the first quarter of 2023 with locations in North Dakota, Washington, Iowa, Arizona and Tennessee
Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.—Big O Tires, LLC, a subsidiary of TBC Corporation, has announced plans to continue its growth strategy by opening 10 new stores in the first quarter of 2023 with locations in North Dakota, Washington, Iowa, Arizona and Tennessee. In 2022, Big O opened 11 new stores in Missouri, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Nevada, California, Indiana and Utah and intends to open an additional 15 to 20 in 2023.
“One reason Big O has been so successful growing is because the company gives its franchisees the ability and freedom to think independently while enjoying the advantages of being part of a bigger collaboration,” says Bruce Cherry, who owns five Big O locations in Northern California. “Big O partners with and listens to its franchisees, and provides guidance to help each of them grow, whether the goal is to expand an existing location or add more stores.”
Big O has expanded its footprint and increased same-store sales growth, year after year, for the last six years. As such, Big O was recently recognized as one of the top 500 franchises in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking #157 overall and #1 in the Wheels & Tires category. This award illustrates outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
