About the Franchise

An innovator from inception, Supa Quick was the first collective of small tyre retailers.

By offering the benefits of a group structure, with volume purchasing power and combined marketing funding and activities, Supa Quick was suddenly able to compete against the corporate tyre giants that had dominated the market at the time. The innovation continued in 1989 when Supa Quick’s franchisor registered as a separate company and promptly expanded its product offering.

This was the start of the “one-stop shop” concept, which is still one of Supa Quick’s strengths to the present day. Supa Quick was drawn into the Bridgestone stable in 1998 and continues to benefit from the global Bridgestone association. Today, Supa Quick comprises a close-knit alliance of franchisor, franchisees and strategically selected supply partners.

Strategy is focused on value creation, whether it be a successful and stable retail distribution platform for the holding company or optimised ROI for the franchisees. This approach maximises skills and service delivery to meet market demands and to satisfy stakeholders.
