Big O Tires has opened a new franchise location in Winnemucca, Nev., bringing its total Nevada store count to 20.
The new location will be owned and operated by Dawneen and Blake Lambert who operated as a Tire Factory cooperative for 17 years before joining Big O. The location will offer automotive services and passenger, light truck, tractor, farm, and mining tires.
“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.”
The location opened March 30 and a grand opening celebration will be hosted in early May.
Big O also opened two new Indiana locations in March.
