The network of Tire Pros dealers grew in 2020, with 20 new locations in 13 states.

“2020 has been an interesting year for everyone from dynamic shifts in the preferred form of travel and new pressures for the trucking industry,” said Greg Bell, president at Tire Pros. “These changes in the American culture created opportunities for current Tire Pros franchisees to prosper, as well as a great opportunity to grow our family.”

The expansion includes stores in Alabama, California, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.

For Josh Baughman, 2020 was a year that presented opportunities to expand mid-year, adding his seventh and eight h locations around the Akron, Ohio market.

“Pandemic or not, when I saw an opportunity to expand, I went for it,” said Baughman. “My business has grown thanks to a bold approach, aggressive online presence and responsive customer service, as well as having Tire Pros as a true partner.”
