RNR Tire Express (RNR), the nation’s leading franchise retailer of tires and custom wheels, rounded out yet another successful year in the brand’s growth.
Last year’s expansion into new franchises and markets, coupled with the accumulation of numerous awards, has set a strong momentum for RNR as they enter the new year.
The RNR team welcomed the opening of 15 new franchise locations this past year, boosting their total store count to 193 and setting the stage for one of the brand’s most significant milestones to date as their 200th location is expected to debut in the Summer of 2024.
Part of that anticipated growth for 2024 stems from the development agreements signed in 2023, which include an expansive territory agreement along Florida’s Treasure Coast and deals to bring RNR Tire Express to new states such as West Virginia and Oregon.
After 24 years in operation, the RNR team credits their continued expansion to their senior leaders’ unrivaled expertise and vision, which includes their latest appointment of Trish Deschenes. Trish joined the franchise in Q4 as the new Franchise Sales Director, intending to revamp the brand’s sales pipeline and maximize its growth potential.
“I may be relatively new to the RNR family, but the traction the RNR concept has taken with new markets to close out the year has made me extraordinarily optimistic for what heights we can reach in 2024,” said Trish Deschenes, Franchise Sales Director of RNR Tire Express.
RNR garnered its fair share of industry recognition this past year, being named to Entrepreneur’s 45th Annual Franchise 500 list, earning the brand a spot in the magazine’s inaugural Hall of Fame ranking for having appeared on the list for 10+ consecutive years. Additionally, RNR was named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s ‘Top Brands for Multi-Unit Owners’ list, Franchise Update Media 2023 Innovation Award, the 2023 Franchise Times Top 400 and Franchise Business Review Top Franchise for 2024.
“While our RNR team continued to work diligently this year to sign new franchise agreements and open more locations nationwide, seeing that work gain national recognition within the franchising space was truly amazing. We take meaningful strides each year to push the RNR brand forward, and last year was no different.” said Larry Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express.
RNR’s franchise opportunity continues to prove itself a leading competitor in the sector; attracting franchisees of all backgrounds and levels of experience not only to the brand’s recession-resilient nature, but to its leading position in a $60+ billion-dollar industry, nearly $2 million AUV, and community-centric business model.
