RimTyme franchises provide a full and complete line of specialized wheel and tire products, offered to consumers under traditional retail sales programs and under rental purchase programs. RimTyme franchises also engage in retail sales of accessory products. The RimTyme franchise prototype was developed and proven by current franchisees. These custom rim and tire stores offer same-day custom wheel and tire installations to customers at competitive prices and affordable payment plans. Compelling unit economics combined with a well established franchisor provide an unparalleled opportunity.
At RimTyme we are driven by our company values - "People Helping People" and we are in this business to make the dream of ownership both a reality and a positive experience. We are committed to creating value for our franchisees by supporting them with superior systems, programs and processes every step of the way. And we are driven by the successes of our franchisees who lead the industry in customer service and respect.
One of the hallmarks of the RimTyme opportunity is the flexibility that allows franchisees to operate as independent business people, while maintaining the brand and benefitting from the RimTyme operating system. RimTyme is arguably one of the best investment deals available and a truly exciting business for the enthusiastic entrepreneur.
Led by an executive team with 60+ years of combined retail, rental and franchise experience, we help our franchisees with business plans and site selection as well as remodeling, lease negotiations, exterior signage, inventory orders and equipment specifications. And before their first RimTyme store opens, each franchisee partner will have access to some of the finest and most comprehensive training programs in the custom wheel industry.
"RimTyme provides unparalleled support with financing, marketing and sales. My decision to become a RimTyme franchisee has been instrumental in my ability to improve both my personal and professional lifestyle."
Eric Malone, Multi-Unit franchisee, Maryland and Georgia
Our franchisees describe the opportunity they have with RimTyme as the best of both worlds: the autonomy to run their business as they see fit and treat each customer with personalized service, paired with buying power, inventory, financing, marketing and training programs.
We go beyond running a franchise system. Demonstrating a strong commitment to the brand, we are building at least 10 new company operated RimTymes over the next 12 months.
