Plaza Tire Service: On the Road Again
Saturday, April 25, 2020
Service. It's in our name, and it's what sets us apart from our competitors. Plaza Tire Service is built on a foundation of excellent service in a quick manner. We offer a "4 Tires, 1 Hour" guarantee, ensuring our customers can get back on the road as quickly as possible.
Founded in 1963 by Vernon "Pee Wee" Rhodes in Cape Girardeau, Plaza Tire Service originally started as Plaza Car Wash, with the tire business as a way to generate revenue on rainy days. In 1968, the company opened solely as a tire shop. We have always been family-owned and operated; Mark Rhodes and Scott Rhodes, the sons of founder Pee Wee, own the company today. Plaza Tire Service has 68 locations throughout Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and Arkansas; our most recent location opened in February of this year in Kirkwood, Missouri.
"People have lots of options, and we earn their business by treating them like we would expect to be treated," says Mark, president.
Scott, vice president, agrees: "In addition to the people we employ in our store locations, we're proud to have our warehouse and distribution center here in Cape Girardeau. All Plaza Tire Service locations are served out of this central hub."
