O.K. Tire Stores adds franchise representative

Feb. 5, 2002

O.K. Tire Stores Inc. has appointed Roger Jennings franchise representative for Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.

Jennings has extensive experience in the tire industry, the company notes. His most recent position was territory manager for Western Canada for Pirelli Tire. He will continue to reside in Abbotsford, B.C.

"The expansion of the O.K. Tire Stores franchise network is one of our major goals," says Wayne Barnes, regional sales manager, sales and franchising, Western Canada. "However, this position is positive to the support and development of our existing O.K. Tire Stores in Alberta and British Columbia. As an organization, we need to ensure that we do not miss any opportunities to expand our store base, but most importantly to support our dealers across Canada."

O.K. Tire Stores Inc. has 215 independent tire and auto service locations across Canada with annual sales in excess of $250 million.
