Custom wheel and tire franchise retailer RNR Tire Express is expanding the brand’s presence in Southeast Florida with the licensing of its newest franchise partners: Evan, Ryan and Jeff Mouhalis.
The family, which now has development rights along the 33-mile stretch of coast between Vero Beach and Stuart, has announced plans for its first location in Fort Pierce, with a goal of opening in April 2024.
Evan, Ryan and Jeff Mouhalis come from a background in the finance space, partnering for the first time with the launch of their family real estate development and investment company in 2016. That company has since purchased and/or developed $75 million worth of commercial development projects in Florida, prompting a decision to diversify business holdings and invest in a concept capable of benefiting and providing for local communities, according to a press release.
“We spent five years searching for a business opportunity whose culture and commitment to customers was worth getting involved with,” said Evan Mouhalis. “After meeting with the RNR team and learning how the brand has built itself up on the foundation of providing underserved demographics with access to safe and affordable tires and wheels, we knew it was a franchise worth building our footprint with.”
The Mouhalis group hopes to open a total of 30 RNR Tire Express locations over the course of the next 15 years, the release added.
