Tires Plus was launched in 1976 by two Shell Oil colleagues, Tom Gegax and Don Gullett, with three old Shell service stations in the Burnsville MN area. Their idea was to redefine an industry. Today Tires Plus Total Car Care, headquartered in Clearwater Florida, attributes its success to beating back old stereotypes of the automotive industry. Walk into a Tire Plus store and you immediately notice the brightly lit, colorfully merchandised showroom. You are greeted by a clean, well dressed, well trained service professional. With the philosophy "We won't sell you tires, we help you buy them." you can be confident tires and services will never be recommended if they are not needed. This straight forward, honest approach is the basis of Tires Plus success and has helped make us part of the largest tire retailing group in the country.
At Tires Plus, customer satisfaction is simply not good enough, rather guest enthusiasm must be the goal. We believe a customer who leaves satisfied will come back, but a guest who leaves enthused may tell everyone they know. Therefore, Tires Plus not only demands guests be treated courteously, but also guarantees the lowest price on every tire they sell.
Sounds pretty good, but our pursuit of guest enthusiasm demands much more. Guests vehicles are serviced in about an hour, which is barely enough time to take advantage of several waiting room amenities like: reading a magazine, watching TV, enjoying a cup of coffee or browsing our displays.
With over 5,000 employees in 500 stores across 23 states, Tires Plus Total Car Care is a company in the fast lane.
Seeing the mesh of an aggressive growth plan, a sensitive and caring business mission and a community giving program which includes such recipients as Meals on Wheels Association of America and Pediatric Cancer Foundation as well other local organizations and you get the entire picture of what Tires Plus is all about.
Tires Plus is truly, Like No Other Store.
