This is LWG’s 17th U.S. state with franchise aftermarket automotive repair locations and third Big O Tires state specifically. The six-store acquisition marks LWG’s 14th new Big O Tires location added into the LWG portfolio within the last 80 days.
With the addition of the New Mexico market, this increases LWG’s Big O Tires store holdings to 23 locations in the brand specifically with 102 locations nationwide, and now over 950 team members collectively across all three (Midas Auto Service Experts, Speedee Oil, and Big O Tires) franchise automotive divisions.
Big O Tires New Mexico will operate under the controls of James Gould, vice president of LWG Big O Tires division, and Derek Wessels, chief operating officer of LWG automotive divisions.
LWG has assumed all ownership and control of these locations Oct. 1.
