RNR Tire Express & Wheels Expansion Targets the Midwest

Posted on April 13, 2017

RNR Tire Express & Custom Wheels (RNR) is expanding its footprint in the Midwest, with an agreement to open 29 new locations in Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa.

The deal with Daniel Vail Investments LLC will bring the first RNR stores to Nebraska and Iowa, and further expand its presence in Kansas.

Business partners Geron Vail and Tim Daniel already have opened two stores in Wichita, plus locations in Hutchinson and Topeka, Kansas. Nine more Kansas stores are planned.

In all, the development includes 13 stores in Kansas, and 16 in Nebraska and Iowa.

“We look forward to bringing RNR’s affordable pay-as-you-go tires and custom wheels to the people of Nebraska and Iowa and continuing the brand's growth throughout Kansas.” says Daniel. “This agreement is a representation of the commitment our team has to providing premium tires and custom wheels to a growing market.”

RNR points to this deal with Daniel Vail Investments as another example of its organic growth with existing franchise owners "who are reinvesting in the fast-growing brand due to strong consumer demand of RNR’s unparalleled pay-as-you-go tire and wheel business model."

The company has experienced significant growth over the past year – expanding to nearly 100 locations in 22 states. In November RNR announced a 58-unit franchise agreement for stores in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Florida.

“Our unique business model, innovative training platforms, and premier service have driven RNR to become the dominant brand for affordable, convenient and quality tires and custom wheels,” says Larry Sutton, founder and president of RNR. “The ongoing trust and determination our franchise owners have committed to our brand has truly been the foundation of our explosive growth over the past year.”

The Sales Counter Moved Again: And the Sales Floor is Now on the Smartphone

The sales counter just moved. Well, it didn’t “just-move,” it’s been moving. In my early days of selling tires at retail, it all happened in a small area at the store known as the sales floor. Consumers called or visited the store where the initial details of a potential sale were discussed. Today, the initial discussion is digital. The salesperson at the store had a great deal of control because the product and pricing information resided with the salesperson at the store. Today, there’s plenty of product and pricing information available to the consumer before they call or visit.
