PARKERSBURG, WV (LOOTPRESS) – RNR Tire Express (RNR), the leading franchise retailer for tires and custom wheels, has announced word of their latest franchise opening; one which marks a number of firsts for the RNR team. This opening marks the official West Virginia debut for the franchise, as well as the first instance of a pre-existing, full-service auto tire shop making a full transition to become a part of the RNR Tire Express family.
Josh and Justin Fanelli, two local Parkersburg brothers and entrepreneurs, owned and operated AutoMed for 5 years before deciding that they and the community would be better served under the RNR name. Not only will the franchise model afford them the opportunity to expand the brand’s presence throughout the state, but it’s unique rent-to-own business concept will help save families money and ensure everyone has equal access to safe, quality, name-brand tires.
“It’s exciting to be the first franchisees to break ground here in West Virginia,” said Josh. “We’re eager to be able to serve the people and families of Parkersburg through use of a new concept like RNR, which will fill a void that’s existed in the region’s consumer market for quite some time.”
RNR has carved out a unique niche in the tire and wheel industry with its convenient, flexible payment options that fit each customer’s budget. RNR offers and professionally installs safe, high-quality tires and custom wheels to a growing market of underserved consumers; a far more targeted focus for both brothers that they trust will help them to play a more impactful role in their community, and aid them in their ambition of introducing 5 total locations to the state.
“Our brand’s entrance into West Virginia has been a long time coming,” said Larry Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express. “The agreement is a perfect representation of the commitment our team has to serving as many communities and families across the country as possible.”
