New Big O Tires Franchise Opens in Calif.

Big O Tires has opened a store in Clearlake, Calif. The store is owned and operated by first-time Big O franchisees Pete and Denise Loustalot, mayor of Clearlake, and their partner Victor Vigil, a longtime Big O franchisee.

“I’ve done my research and have been in the business for quite some time so I know an opportunity when I see one,” said Denise. “Prior to owning a shop, I worked in a Big O Tires store; I appreciate the vision behind the brand and the commitment to the local community that comes with being part of the Big O organization. When it came time to decide how I was going to take our business to the next level, I knew that Big O Tires was the right choice.”

Before joining the Big O Tires organization, the Loustalot’s independent tire store was a Tire Factory location.

As a Big O Tires location, the Clearlake store will offer customers a full array of tires and automotive services.
