After recording $4 million in sales in their first year of ownership of a Big O Tires store, the husband-wife team of Steve and Cody Gray have acquired a second store and converted the former Point S location to the Big O Tires banner.
They converted the store in Pleasant Grove, Utah on July 1, 2021, exactly two years after they took over ownership of their original store in Provo, Utah. Steve Gray worked for Big O Tires for more than 25 years, eventually managing the store before he purchased it in July 2019.
He works the front end of the business, while his wife Cody manages the bookkeeping and accounting. Their son Weston is eager to join the family business.
“We have remained open while making renovations and installing new equipment to let customers know we are here to help and, in an effort, to show our dedication and commitment to the community,” said Steve Gray. “We have big dreams, but our goal, at both locations, is and will continue to be to exceed the expectations of our customers, building lasting relationships by providing high-quality products at a great value and performing honest and worry-free tire and auto service.”
Cody Gray added, “The community has embraced us with open arms and many customers have even made it a point to mention how excited they are to see Big O Tires come to Pleasant Grove.”
The store is located at 945 South State Road.
Since 1962 Big O Tires has grown into a franchise of nearly 460 Big O Tires locations in North America.
“The Grays truly exemplify the Big O Tires franchise spirit through their passion and devotion to establishing brand recognition by building trust and delivering exceptional customer service,” said Jim Bull, vice president and general manager of Big O Tires. “We are very proud of Steve, Cody and Weston and have no doubt their drive paired with their ability to adapt and grow will translate to continued success at both of their locations.”
