The "Tires at 2: Successful Tire Dealers Share Their Secrets" seminar at the 2017 Global Tire Expo lived up to its name. Before a big crowd, the two tire dealers on stage were open about how they run their businesses.
CIMS Inc. has partnered with Plaza Tire Service Inc. to electronically register every tire sold by the Cape Girardeau, Mo.-based dealership’s 62 retail outlets.
Mark Rhodes and Scott Rhodes, the second generation brothers who own Plaza Tire Service Inc., are the winners of Modern Tire Dealer’s 2017 Tire Dealer of the Year Award.
The winner of our first Tire Dealer of the Year Award and the winners of the 25th prize have a lot in common. Both focus on serving each customer to the best of their abilities. They look at what can be gained from the positive, word-of-mouth publicity that follows, instead of the initial cost involved.
