RNR Custom Wheels and Tire Express was excited to learn that they again made Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list. For the past 35 years, Entrepreneur Magazine has been listing the top 500 franchises for each year. It’s a coveted list and one that RNR Custom Wheels and Tire Express has been fortunate to have been included in for the past 8 years. Recently, they received the news that they had reason to celebrate again. After a very successful 2013, RNR has earned a place in Entrepreneur’s 2014 Franchise 500 (as well as first place in their category).
Since RNR Custom Wheels and Tire Express began back in 2000, they’ve experienced steady growth. From their one original location, they’ve expanded and multiplied through a combination of company-owned and franchise locations. They currently have 67 stores open (60 franchise locations), with 3 more stores set to open in February of this year. From their Tampa, Florida roots, they’ve expanded to 19 states with 11 franchisees since they began franchising in 2003. They hope to reach 100 stores within the next four years.
Vince Ficarrotta, Vice President of Franchising at RNR, had this to say about the ranking: “It’s a great honor to be included in this list, and to have maintained a place on this list for 8 consecutive years is an accomplishment that we’re proud of at RNR. The franchise side of our business continues to grow stronger, and we’re very optimistic about expanding our brand in the future. We really appreciate this recognition from a magazine like Entrepreneur.”
