No Experience? No Problem! Our Franchise Training and Support Prepares You!
If you’re worried you need past automotive industry experience to take advantage of a Big O Tires franchise opportunity, don’t be. One of the best things about it is that it comes with comprehensive franchise training and support that will prepare you to operate your business smoothly and successfully. With us by your side, you’ll be in business for yourself, never by yourself!
Location Is Everything
We know finding the right location for your franchise is key to success, so we make sure to use our decades of experience to help you do just that! Our real estate team will be on hand to provide you with site selection guidance, factoring in considerations like zoning parameters, size and dimensions, proximity to other Big O Stores, other types of retailers in the area, visibility, traffic flow, access and exits, population, and more.
After you’ve narrowed down your choice, we’ll provide you with a floor plan prototype and equipment layout for your store, so you can be sure it not only meets our Big O standards but that it makes it easy for your customers to rely on you as their go-to source for expert auto maintenance and repair.
Franchise Pre-opening Training That Prepares You
Our initial franchise training is conducted both online, at our Big O Tires Academy, and in person, at one of our operating Big O stores. In total, you’ll spend at least four weeks learning the ins and outs of our business model and the Big O brand, including:
How to deliver exceptional customer service
How to leverage important vendor relationships
How to manage inventory
How to use our point-of-sale system
How to market your franchise
How to keep accurate books
We know how important it is to start your Big O Tires franchise out on the right footing, and our franchise training and support is meant to prepare you for success so you can enjoy being the car care center that owners depend on!
Big O is a wonderful company to be with. I believe they have the same goals in mind — they want us to succeed, so that makes us want to succeed.”
— Mitch Beranek, franchisee
