TBC Retail Group (TBC Retail) says that to meet the needs of motorists in emerging markets, the company is offering enhanced incentives to expand its Big O Tires, Midas, and SpeeDee Oil Change & Tune-Up (SpeeDee) brands in the U.S. and Canada.

TBC Retail is giving a $10,000 discount on its initial franchise fee and a discounted royalty for the first two years of operation. The program applies to any locations that are opened on or after Feb. 1, 2013. The franchise agreement must be signed by March 31, 2014 and the store must be opened by March 31, 2015.

"These are exciting times for our franchise system," says Bill Ketchem, vice president of franchise development, TBC Corp.

"The market is ripe for today's small business owner. Our franchises provide the freedom of being an independent operator of a highly recognized brand with the support of a multi-billion operation.

TBC Retail says it is the largest operator of tire and automotive service centers in the U.S. and Canada with six brands encompassing 1,841 franchise locations and 922 company-operated retail outlets.

In addition to the discounted franchise fee, TBC Retail is offering several financial incentives to new as well as existing franchisees.

TBC supports new franchisees with everything from site selection and financing to construction and grand opening execution. Additionally, the franchises offer protected market areas as well as ongoing support with product and service selection, national marketing support and training.

Franchises and incentives are not currently available in all states. Please contact Midas, SpeeDee or Big O representatives for details. For more information on franchise opportunities, contact Ketchem at or (561) 383-3100 ext. 4322.
