Feb. 24, 2023–MFA Petroleum Company (MPC), a Big O Tires franchisee, has acquired 13 of the brand’s locations in the Kansas City area, according to a press release.
The stores were purchased from TBC Corporation, a company that owns over 730 auto centers of varying brands.
The stores purchased include five in Kansas–MPC’s first in the state–and eight in Missouri. Prior to the acquisition, MPC operated 22 stores across Missouri and Arkansas.
With the addition of the Kansas City area stores, they now operate 35 locations out of Big O Tire’s total of 460, making them the biggest franchisee of the brand.
MPC’s senior director of Big O Tires, Charlie Alexander, stated this is “a major expansion for our company” and helps to “build the Big O Tires brand throughout the Kansas City area.”
