What to expect if you’re buying a Big O Tires franchise
Thanks for taking the time to learn about Big O Tires. We’ve built a strong brand over the past 50 years, and look forward to adding more great, ambitious businesspeople to our team. If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to fill out the form to the right to download our free franchise report, and one of our team members will be in touch. You can also give us a call at 1-800-622-2446.
We look forward to getting to know you, and giving you a chance to get to know us! That’s the first step in our franchise award process, which is designed to help us determine if we’re a great match. Here’s a brief outline of the process:
After you fill out a form or give us a call, we’ll send you a brochure about the Big O opportunity and will begin an evaluation of your market to start to determine the best available sites for a Big O store if we are selling Big O franchises in your state. We’ll also go over some basics about startup costs.
We will then send you a copy of our Financial Disclosure Document (FDD). If you’ve never seen an FDD before, you might be surprised by all the detail and intricacy that goes into the document. Franchise companies are required by the Federal Trade Commission to provide FDDs to ensure that franchisees get a full picture of the opportunities, costs and royalties involved with the business. Because the FTC-outlined document is so lengthy, we like to go over the document with franchise candidates so we can explain the document and answer any questions.
The FDD also contains a list of franchisees so you can give them a call and get their perspective on the company.
Next, you’ll have a chance to interview members of our operations team. Assuming everyone agrees that Big O is a great fit, we’ll award you a franchise and begin the training process and start getting your site ready for business!
