TAMPA, Fla. (MARCH 21, 2024) – RNR Tire Express (RNR), the leading franchise retailer for tires and custom wheels, recently closed out their 21st annual franchise conference, which welcomed operators, team members, and vendors from across the country to Orlando for a weekend of shared insights, growth projections, and franchisee recognition.

The latter is historically done by awarding a prestigious few with some of the brand’s highest honors: Franchisee of the Year, Faye Sutton Woman of the Year, and Rookie of the Year, to name only a few. However, it was this year’s posthumous awarding of the franchise’s second-ever Lifetime Achievement Award to longtime franchisee Richard Rose that took center stage at the conference.

Richard first joined the RNR family in 2008, opening his first of 9 franchise locations in Norfolk, Virginia, with a belief in the value that the rent-to-own model could offer communities and underserved demographics. His work in the 15 years since has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of customers, and helped better the lives of countless team members who he influenced and helped mentor all along the way.

“Richard was a devoted soul intent on changing as many lives as he could. He truly embodied everything that RNR stands for, and I feel privileged to have had him as a part of our system for as long as we did,” said RNR Tire Express Founder/CEO Larry Sutton. “He led with a level of business acumen and compassion that is rarely seen in this industry, and which we could all stand to emulate in our own lives. I can think of no person more deserving of this award.”

Members of the Rose family were in attendance at the conference to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award on Richard’s behalf. A fitting gesture, as Richard’s two sons will continue to operate their father’s franchise locations in Virginia and ensure his legacy continues within the RNR system and throughout the communities he services.
