Nicholson graduated high school in Burke, Va., near Washington, D.C. He attended college at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Fla., and during his sophomore year he started working as a tire technician at Allied Tire Sales.

While attending the University of Central Florida he was offered a full-time job as an auto technician for a NTW (National Tire Warehouse) franchisee. Approximately 18 months later, Nicholson was promoted to manager of that location.

Other store manager jobs followed before Nicholson was offered a job with TBC Corp. teaching sales and store management for Tire Kingdom Service Centers.
