WILTON — Warren Tire Service Center is planning to open a new location in Wilton next year. The site was recently approved by the town and county planning boards, and is located at 573 Route 9, next to the Cumberland Farms convenience and gas station.
The family owned business has been running since 1983, and has 15 different locations in 8 counties across New York. Bob Kellogg, president of Warren Tire, says that this new site is a great opportunity to expand their business. “We’re looking forward to being in the Wilton area and Saratoga County, as we don’t have much of a presence there right now,” he says. According to the Albany Business Review, Warren Tire’s revenue has increased by 15% in the past year, to around $22 million.
The new location will bring around eight new positions, which the company will hire for before their grand opening. Kellogg says that he’s currently choosing between two construction companies to contract for the site, but construction will begin sometime in December.
An opening date of August 2020 is currently set as a goal, but nothing is set in stone yet. “We’ve wanted to be in this area for many years, so we’re really excited about this new location,” Kellogg says. Warren Tire will also share the location with a Valvoline Instant Oil car service shop, which also approved for construction in September.
