Common FAQs We Hear About a Big O Tires Automotive Franchise Opportunity

May 1, 2023
A mechanic is working on a tire at an automotive franchise.

The Big O Tires brand has been a name people have trusted for over 60 years, and in that time, we’ve been asked lots of questions about our automotive franchise opportunity. Potential investors naturally have them and ask about what it means to become part of our brand family, and we’re only too happy to answer them. Here, we’ll look at a few of the more common questions we get asked about a Big O automotive franchise opportunity.

Do I Need to Be an Industry Expert?

Many potential franchisees believe that in order to be successful, they need a background in the automotive industry they’d like to do business in. This is actually not so. While it’s certainly helpful to have related experience, in our case, thanks to our comprehensive pre-opening training and ongoing support, Big O franchisees are not only prepared to fully leverage our proven business model but are able to stay on track toward growth.

We know starting out and staying on solid footing is key to your success, and we don’t leave that up to chance. Our brand has been a recognized and respected one for over six decades, and that’s due in large part to the hard work of our franchisees and the support we show them for the life of their business.

Am I Free to Run My Business the Way I Want?

A common myth about the franchisor/franchisee relationship is that you won’t be allowed to run things on your own. While all franchise brands do have specific processes and procedures that franchisees must follow (it’s what takes so much of the guesswork out of running your business), the fact is our automotive franchise opportunities allow for a lot of individuality. Among other things, you’ll decide who to hire, how you want to structure your time at your auto shop, and what local marketing efforts you’ll plan and initiate to reach your best customers.

The bottom line is that relying on our franchisees to make important decisions on their own and run their businesses without interference contributes to our brand’s overall success, so we encourage them to do so.
