etyres Middlesbrough launched by father and son team

By 18th December 2016 No Comments

We are delighted to welcome father and son team, Tony and Luke Little, to the etyres nationwide network as they launch etyres Middlesbrough.

Faced with a challenging economic climate in their home town, they decided to pool their resources and go into business together in order to build a solid future for themselves and the entire family.

Tony explained: “I could see my industry was sinking into the doldrums and I realised that my work as a health and safety consultant was going to dry up pretty soon.

“Meanwhile our eldest son Luke had started studying for a degree in engineering, but again he realised the petrochemical industry he wanted to work in was also taking a hit. He could have continued his studies, but it would have meant graduating with a massive debt and still struggled to find the right job.

“So we started chatting about how we were both at a crossroads and it made sense to try and find a way forward together.”

After this realisation, came the challenge of finding something that they could get fully involved in, using all their combined skills, ambition and sheer determination.

Tony continued: “Franchising made sense right from the start, because although we wanted to start our own business, we recognised that we would need a level of support to help us built a strong, local business.

“etyres made sense as a business model right from the start. Why wouldn’t everyone want to have their tyres or battery fitted at their home or work instead of trudging off to a garage, wasting time and haggling over prices!

“We have a lot of plans for the future, but we are going to take it one step at a time. Steady, strategic growth is what counts and with the support of the etyres Head Office we are confident we can build a solid future for our family.”
