Big O Tires Expands in Indiana
TBC Corp.’s Big O Tires LLC subsidiary has added two stores in Indiana. Located in Noblesville and Carmel, the stores are owned and operated by franchisee Joe Peil.
These are Peil’s first stores as a Big O Tires franchisee.
Prior to converting his stores to Big O Tires locations, Joe operated these locations independently under the name Joe’s Auto Service, Inc.
“Big O Tires was a perfect fit,” says Peil, a 20-year industry veteran. “The breadth of product offerings, support from operations, solid and proven infrastructure, and their overall buying power as a leading franchise organization helped to make my decision an easy one and I am very confident in the decision that I have made.”
These two locations are the nineteenth and twentieth Big O Tires locations in the state of Indiana.
TBC says both locations opened on March 9, 2016, and are equipped to provide customers a full array of high quality tires and automotive services.
“It‘s exciting to see successful independent operators like Joe join the Big O Tires organization,” says Kevin Kormondy, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Big O Tires.
“We are committed to helping each and every one of our franchisees; from the beginning stages of evaluation through facility assistance and training," says Kormandy. "We’re confident that our talented field support team can assist new franchisees to enhance the operation of their business. We’re thrilled to have Joe as part of the Big O family.”
The addresses and phone numbers of the new Big O Tire stores are:
* 9240 East 146th Street, Noblesville, IN (317-770-8100); ;and
