RNR Tire Express is planning a big expansion in Indiana, as the franchisor has signed an agreement to open 25 stores in the Hoosier State over the next five years.
The first locations will open this spring in the cities of Anderson and Muncie in East Central Indiana. After that, stores are planned for Kokomo, Marion and Fort Wayne.
There are currently three RNR Tire Express outlets in Indiana — in Clarksville, Evansville and Franklin.
The new stores will be managed by Scott Robertson, an automotive industry and franchising veteran. Robertson has 15+ years of automotive and franchising experience, which RNR Tire Express says will be pivotal as the brand expands its presence across Indiana and bring the lease-to-purchase model to communities in the area.
“Indiana’s positive economic climate and unique demographic makes it a perfect fit for RNR Tire Express,” says Robertson. “We are looking forward to giving back to the community by bringing RNR’s convenient, pay-as-you-go services and safe tires to the communities across Indianapolis."
Larry Sutton, founder and president of RNR Tire Express, says, “As a brand based in the Southeast, we are thrilled to further develop across the Midwest on our mission to make safe tires and wheels accessible to communities across the nation. We have no doubt that Scott and his team will help the brand make a positive impact on the local communities surrounding the greater Indianapolis area by offering convenient payment options and top-tier customer service.”
RNR says its corporate culture gives its franchise partners a high degree of entrepreneurial freedom —and a proven record of same-store revenue growth for three consecutive years, making it a profitable and rewarding franchise investment.
The initial franchise fee for RNR is $35,000 with the total single-unit investment ranging from $500,000 - $700,000.
The brand has 130 locations in 24 states.
