RNR Tire Express (RNR), one of the nation’s fastest-growing tire and custom wheel franchise, has signed a franchise deal to bring 16 new locations to parts of Georgia and Alabama over the next six years.
Partners Mike Hultquist and Grant Wetherill of OzarkGa, LLC, are looking to develop locations in Warner Robins and Columbus, Georgia as well as Auburn–Opelika and Phenix City, Alabama with plans to open their first location in the next 12 months.
Hulquist and Wetherill join RNR with more than 16 years of experience growing and developing businesses, including 65 Game X Change franchise locations across eight states.
“RNR continues to fill a void in the marketplace as consumers seek convenient payment options when it comes to quality tires and wheels. As we introduce new RNR locations, Grant and I look forward to bringing the brand’s affordable pay-as-you-go model to communities across Georgia and Alabama,” said Mike Hultquist, partner of OzarkGa LLC. “This agreement is a representation of the commitment our team has to the business and providing a premium product and service to a growing market.”
Founded in 2000 by Larry Sutton, RNR offers and installs tires and custom wheels and has established a business model that allows clients to pay off name brand tires and wheels on a weekly or monthly plan.
“Mike and Grant are a great fit for our brand and we are extremely grateful to have them as part of the RNR family,” said Larry Sutton, founder and president of RNR Tire Express. “The ongoing trust and determination our franchise owners have dedicated to our brand has truly been the cornerstone to our brand’s mission of being the best tire and wheel concept in America.”
