Beasley Tire to add retail services in San Antonio
Beasley Tire Service Inc. is on track to move into a new location in San Antonio, Texas. Construction of a 21,500-square-foot commercial-and-retail store will be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
The Houston-based company has provided commercial tire services to the San Antonio market from a smaller leased facility since June 2011. Half of the new building will be devoted to retail business, according to Bob Davidson, director of dealer development.
The new store will have six retail service bays and three drive-through truck bays. Beasley Tire is buying two service trucks, including a boom truck for servicing earthmover tires, for the new store. The company will have a total of nine service trucks in San Antonio. There currently are 17 employees at the San Antonio store. The company expects to hire five more by the time the new facility opens. The store's opening day is expected to be April 1, 2015.
In addition to its Houston and San Antonio stores, Beasley also provides commercial services from a location in Kenedy, Texas. The company was founded in 1968.
“We’re noted for the way we service all customers, especially on the commercial side,” says Davidson. “Our Houston store has 16 service trucks and Kenedy has another four. We have differentiated ourselves from our competitors because customers know they are going to get the best service.”
In three years, Beasley Tire’s commercial operations in San Antonio have generated $7 million in sales. Davidson says the company projects next year’s sales for the new store to be $10.5 million due to growth in its earthmover and commercial businesses and the addition of retail services.
