November 01, 2012 // Franchising.com // Juno Beach, FLA. – Big O Tires, LLC (Big O) today announced that it will continue its commitment to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces through its Vet Fran Program. The program waives the $30,000 franchise fee for qualified veterans when they open their initial Big O Tires franchise.
“We understand that veterans face many challenges returning to civilian life, especially in workforce development,” said Kevin Kormondy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Big O Tires. “It is our goal to help lessen that burden by providing them with the opportunity to be their own boss and run a successful, well-supported business.”
Currently listed as number 101 in “Franchise Times” Top 200 Franchise Chains by Worldwide Sales, and fifth in its Top Automotive category, the Big O Tires franchise continues to strengthen its position in the marketplace while increasing its market share.
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the success of Big O lies in its proven business model, exceptional franchise support system, and strong franchisee base.
In addition to waiving the $30,000 franchise fee for veterans, Big O assists new franchisees with everything from site selection and financing to build-out and grand opening. Additionally, the franchise offers protected market areas as well as exceptional on-going support with product and service selection, national marketing support, and training just to name a few.
