April 26, 2016 // Franchising.com // Palm Beach Gardens, FL – Big O Tires ®, one of North America's largest retail tire and automotive service franchisors with 389 franchisee-owned and 2 company-operated locations in 19 states, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest location in Winnemucca, Nevada. The store is owned and operated by Dawneen and Blake Lambert.
For the past 17 years, the Lamberts have operated this location independently as part of the Tire Factory® cooperative. After evaluation of the industry, they have converted their retail location and are the newest members of the Big O Tires franchisee family.
“In my opinion, Big O is the best in product, best in warranty from one side of the ocean to the other,” said Blake Lambert. “I have never been around a more professional and supportive team.”
This location marks the twentieth Big O Tires location in Nevada. It opened March 30, 2016 and a grand opening celebration is scheduled for the beginning of May. The store will offer passenger, light truck, tractor, farm, and mining tires as well as automotive services.
Mr. Lambert went on to state that, “As a Big O Tires location, I am able to offer the same exceptional quality of service that my community has come to expect from me, but I can now offer what I believe to be better products, better prices and better warranties.”
“It’s exciting to see successful independent operators like Dawneen and Blake join the Big O Tires organization,” said Kevin Kormondy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Big O Tires. “We are committed to helping each and every one of our franchisees; from the beginning stages of evaluation through facility assistance and training, we’re confident that our talented field support team can assist new franchisees to enhance the operation of their business. We’re thrilled to have Dawneen and Blake as part of the Big O family.”
The store is located at 580 Hanson Street, Winnemucca, NV 89445; phone number is (775) 623-4089.
