From an empty building to the 32nd Tire Choice

The transformation is complete. Hennelly Tire & Auto Inc. has taken an empty store in Largo, Fla., and turned it into its 32nd retail store.

Hennelly Tire does business solely in Florida as The Tire Choice & Total Car Care. The store opened on Saturday, March 5.

The location is great, according to Chairman and CEO Dan Hennelly. "That store would make a better Starbucks than tire store."

Hennelly Tire has jumped to 33rd place on the MTD 100 list in just  under seven years. Next up: building a store from the ground up in Carrollwood, a suburb of Tampa. The eight-bay store is scheduled to open in June or July of this year 

Modern Tire Dealer had the chance to visit the Largo store, located at the corner of Ulmerton Rd. and Seminole Blvd., last November. To see what the store looked like when it was gutted, check out MTD's January issue, which features the grand opening of Hennelly Tire's 30th Tire Choice outlet.
