TBC Offering New Incentives For Franchisees

The TBC Retail Group (Pam Beach Gardens, FL) is offering enhanced incentives to expand its Big O Tires, Midas and SpeeDee Oil Change & Tune-Up brands in the United States and Canada. This includes a $10,000 discount on its initial franchise fee and a discounted royalty for the first two years of operation. Franchise agreements must be signed by March 31, 2014, and stores must be opened by March 31, 2015.

The company supports new franchisees with a range of services from site selection and financing to construction and grand opening execution. Additionally, the franchises offer protected market areas, as well as on-going support with product and service selection, national marketing, and training.

Franchises and incentives are not currently available in all states.

TBC Retail bills itself as the largest operator of tire and automotive service centers in the United States and Canada with six brands encompassing 1,841 franchise locations and 922 company-operated retail outlets.
