By | Events, News, updates | No Comments

We’re looking forward to learning and networking alongside passionate and hardworking professionals at WPMAEXPO 2020 and the Jiffy Lube Convention & Trade Show in February.

WPMAEXPO 2020

Our team will be in Las Vegas from February 18-20 along with the members of the 8 separate state associations that make up the Western Petroleum Marketers Association. We will be exhibiting at booth 1010 at the Mirage Hotel where we would love an opportunity to meet with anyone who is attending the show. Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a meeting.

We expect this to be a great event as there are several educational sessions lined up including “The Future of Fuel and Renewable Fuel Outlook” with Chris Rowland. Rowland is the Chief Economist at Marathon Petroleum and we look forward to hearing some of his expert insights. Adding to the excitement, former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan will deliver a keynote speech.

The event is sponsored by fuel industry giants and the companies that serve them like Chevron, Federated Insurance, Sinclair, Marathon, and Shell who serve as the show’s Presidential Sponsors. The list of Premier sponsors also includes some big names such as Pro Petroleum, Valero, Exxon Mobil, Phillips 66, the Holly Frontier Corporation, and RacePRO.

Our team is thrilled to be part of such an important event. We look forward to meeting new people while catching up with old friends and acquaintances.

New Partnership: RNR Tire Express is Teaming up With Excel Tire Gauge

By | News, updates | No Comments

RNR Tire Express corporate is partnering with Excel Tire Gauge to provide free air to its customers. The national tire retailer installed its first two SC05-SS Classic Series air machines at its Clearwater, Florida location in the Fall of 2019. Our two companies are working together to promote Excel Tire Gauge’s equipment at RNR’s franchise locations.

“We are very excited about this new partnership and excited to be part of a new standard operating procedure in regards to tire pressure maintenance,” said Roger Audette, Director of Sales and Marketing at Excel Tire Gauge.

Installing Excel Tire Gauge digital air machines should prove to be a smart strategic move for RNR. Tire shops that choose Excel products often experience improved customer loyalty as Excel air machines are used 30% more often than the competition’s machines. This is likely because customers appreciate the faster and easier tire filling process that Excel products provide.

RNR Tire Express is adding to this effect by using custom decals on their SC05-SS air machines. This will help customers associate their positive inflation experience with the RNR brand.

Providing customers with digital air machines creates a unique opportunity for tire shops. While providing customers with free air is not as common among the tire shop industry, over 860 million people fill their tires at gas stations each year. Tire shops like RNR who are savvy enough to provide air inflation to customers can tap into this massive audience, bringing more traffic to their stores.

Additionally, some of the customers who stop at tire shops like RNR to inflate their tires are bound to find that one of their tires is damaged, leaking, or otherwise can not hold air. Conveniently, the customer will be able to walk right into the store and schedule a tire change. While this will not be the case for all customers, any opportunity to bring in more traffic is an opportunity to make a sale.

17th Annual RNR Tire Express Franchise Conference and Expo

As part of this partnership, our team will attend RNR Tire Express’s annual franchise meeting at the Airport Renaissance in Tampa on January 19-21. We will have a booth at the show where we will also donate a free SC05-SS air machine to one lucky RNR franchisee!

We are excited to meet with RNR’s franchise partners, operators, and store managers to celebrate the tire retailer’s accomplishments in 2019. We look forward to personally meeting some of the hardworking professionals at RNR and welcoming them into our family of partners. More importantly, we are excited to be a part of RNR’s success through 2020 and beyond.
