“At RNR, we preach ‘serve, not service’, and this is the philosophy we embed in our work both with tire sales and in serving our communities. Back to school can be an anxious time for parents and children, and we are grateful for the opportunity to help families in need, ”said Larry Sutton, Founder and President of RNR Tire Express. “We look forward to continuing the tradition this year of supporting families in neighboring communities, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in the cities where we operate.
This year marks the seventh consecutive year that RNR’s franchise partners have participated in this back-to-school charity initiative. In each of the past three years, participating franchisees have seen the number of backpack donations from their stores increase each time.
Starting with the donation of 1,000 backpacks in 2018, RNR saw an increase of approximately 3,100 backpacks in 2019 and authorized 3,300 in 2020.
Founded in 2000 by leasing veteran Larry Sutton, RNR has carved out a niche in the tire and wheel industry with hassle-free payment options that fit every customer’s budget.
