Big O Tires, LLC, subsidiary of TBC Corporation announced it plans to continue its growth strategy by opening 10 new stores in the first quarter of 2023 with locations in North Dakota, Washington, Iowa, Arizona and Tennessee. In 2022, Big O says it opened 11 new stores in Missouri, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Nevada, California, Indiana and
Utah, and intends to open an additional 15 to 20 in 2023.
“One reason Big O has been so successful growing is because the company gives its
franchisees the ability and freedom to think independently while enjoying the advantages of
being part of a bigger collaboration,” says Bruce Cherry, who owns five Big O locations in
Northern California. “Big O partners with and listens to its franchisees, and provides guidance to
help each of them grow, whether the goal is to expand an existing location or add more stores.”
Big O says it has expanded its footprint and increased same-store sales growth, year after year, for the
last six years. As such, Big O was recently recognized as one of the top 500 franchises in
Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking #157 overall and #1 in the Wheels & Tires
category. “This award illustrates outstanding performance in areas including unit growth,
financial strength and stability, and brand power,” the company says.
“We are excited to continue to adapt, improve, grow and attract new franchisees,” said Brian
Maciak, president & chief operating officer of Big O Tires. “It’s through the entrepreneurial
spirit of our franchisees that we are able to push new boundaries, expand our footprint and
remain true to our commitment of being The Team You Trust.”
