Columbia, Missouri – BORE/MPC LLC, the joint venture between MFA Oil Company and Big O Tires, recently announced that MFA Oil has purchased Big O Tires’ interest in the partnership.
Formed in 1998, BORE/MPC is the Big O Tires franchisee that owns and operates 14 Big O Tires stores in Camdenton, Columbia, Hollister, Jefferson City, Nixa, Osage Beach, Rolla, Springfield and St. Roberts, MO and in Bentonville and Springdale, AR. New stores also will open in Branson, MO and Fayetteville, AR this year.
“This is a good deal for MFA Oil Company,” says Rusty Coats, MFA Oil director of retail tire operations. “Not only was the cost of the buyout favorable, but the single company ownership will allow us to be quicker and more flexible in our business decisions.”
“As Big O Tires continues to look for opportunities to expand, this purchase will make that process, and others, more efficient,” adds Mark Fenner, MFA Oil president and CEO. “And we’re very fortunate to have Rusty leading the Big O Tires team with his 40 plus years of experience in the tire and automotive repair business.”
