Big O Tires Franchisee Tony Williams Is Honored
Big O Tires LLC franchisee Tony Williams of Phoenix, Ariz., has received the Franchisee of the Year Award from the International Franchise Association (IFA).
“The strength of the U.S. economy significantly relies on the hard work of franchisees,” says Robert Cresanti, IFA’s vice president of government relations and public policy.
“IFA is proud to recognize the outstanding efforts of Tony with the Franchisee of the Year Award and thank him for his work in the promotion of franchising as well as for his daily contributions that not only showcase how local business owners propel the economy, but also foster community ties throughout the U.S.”
Big O Tires is a subsidiary of TBC Corp. Williams was recognized for his willingness to go above and beyond for both his customers and his team, according to TBC.
Within the Big O Tires organization he is at the top for sales performance, his team’s morale, and in overall customer satisfaction and retention.
“The entire Big O Tires network is extremely proud of Tony, not only for receiving the honor of Franchisee of the Year, but also for all of the work he does throughout the year in his local community and for our Big O customers,” says Kevin Kormondy, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Big O Tires.
Williams joined the Big O Tires organization in 2006 when he purchased a store in South Phoenix, Ariz. He has since expanded to seven locations in the Phoenix area.
“The secret to my success is that I love the Big O Tires franchise. I love the system and level of support that Big O offers,” says Williams. “Fellow franchisees and the Big O Tires Operations Team make it really easy for me to enjoy what I do while experiencing success.”
