“Our expansion plans in the Florida panhandle began about four years ago and we’re excited about the opportunity to continue serving the great people of Panama City in our newest location,” says Bill Shull, division vice president for TBC Corp., the parent company to Tire Kingdom.

“At all of our locations, including our nearly 190 Tire Kingdom locations throughout the state of Florida, we strive to make a difference,” says Erik Olsen, CEO and president of TBC Corp. “We’re excited about the opportunity to be an active member of the community in Panama City both at our new location exceeding customer locations and through philanthropic initiatives aimed at giving back.”

Tire Kingdom is among the TBC retail brands offering a daily military discount. Consumers must present valid U.S. military identification at the counter. The discount on products and services is extended to all active duty and Reserves members.

“At Tire Kingdom, and within all TBC operating entities, we strive to implement programs that provide us the opportunity to give back to the community and make a lasting impact,” continued Olsen. “Through our Military Discount Program, we have the opportunity to offer modified pricing, each and every day, to members of the military who give so much to our country.”
