Northwest Tire Factory LLC continues to ramp up new store growth year after year. The $100 million organization added 28 stores last year.

This year, Tire Factory has grown 8.2% to date. It added 17 member stores, which increased the number of stores to 224. Many of the new dealers in 2013 came from the Denver, Colo., area and other surrounding states.

"Our model of giving members direct buy prices in small quantities via our regional distribution centers is helping Tire Factory independent dealers grow profitably," says CEO John Kreidel. "We aim to exceed our new member store goal for 2013 by adding at least 25 new stores in the west this year.”

“The Tire Factory family of independent tire dealers is continuing its rapid growth," says Chairman Eric Gill. “That’s why we are expanding to handle even more growth in the Colorado geographic area. We are boosting our footprint to over 40,000 square feet in the new regional distribution center in Denver.”
