Frank and Carl Ann Anderson were living in Warsaw, IN when Anderson was noticed by a former Firestone division manager — Ray Monteith — who was buying independent franchises in Indiana. Impressed by the young man’s work ethic, Monteith told Anderson that if he was willing to work directly for his franchise, rather than the corporation, he would eventually give Anderson the opportunity to open his own tire franchise.
After a few years, he gave Anderson his choice of either running a Firestone franchise in Elkhart — or in Columbus. He made the choice to move to Bartholomew County.
When Frank Anderson Tire Inc. opened its door for the first time in November 1971, they started with a staff of only three employees. As of last month, the company has 15 workers.
After 48 years, Frank Anderson decided the time was right and the right people in place to retire. Effective February 1, 2019, Frank Anderson Tire was acquired by Indy Tire Centers Inc, DBA Best-One of Indy. Frank Anderson Tire has been a proud Best-One member since 1971.
“I was approached by Best-One of Indy, it was like a path lit up for me because it keeps us linked to the partners I started with.” said Frank Anderson, owner of Frank Anderson Tire Company who is retiring. “Best-One of Indy strives to do things the right way and be proper members of the community. The best and deciding factor of this exit strategy is that our employees will still be here and in place.”
While the name on the building will be changing to Best-One of Columbus, it is important for customers to understand that it is business as usual with the same great local people, same great service, and quality products that Frank Anderson and his team have been delivering for the past 48 years. Kevin Rich, Frank Anderson Tire’s store manager, has been a part of the team for the past 32 years will remain on board as store manager dedicated to motivating his team to continue being the leading and most trusted providers of tires and services in the Columbus market.
Best-One of Indy understands change. Prior to March of 2018, for 32 years the name of their nine locations was Indy Tire & Auto Service. The company remains centered on their mission – Creating Raving Fans. Whether a name change, or a change in ownership, one thing that never waivers is their commitment to people.
